"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true,
to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
An Extraordinary Dog Hero

The goal of Western Australian Shepherd is to help place Australian Shepherds, Border Collies, Australian Cattle Dogs and other herding breeds in loving, permanent homes or service careers. Western Australian Shepherd Rescue does not place dogs for any breeding purposes what so ever. Western Australian Shepherd Rescue will not place dogs for any kind of guard duty. Dogs are placed in carefully screened homes through the use of specific rules and procedures. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers that put our hearts, souls and spare time into finding forever homes for Australian Shepherds, Border Collies, Australian Cattle Dogs and other herding breeds. Some of us compete in dog sports like agility, obedience, rally, conformation and herding with our Aussies. While others of us simply love the breed and enjoy helping them. We all feel a responsibility to help these dogs. We are completely foster based, meaning all of our dogs stay in one of our volunteer's home until a forever home is found. Western Aussie Rescue fosters and places dogs in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Utah, North and South Dakota, New Mexico as well as Colorado. We have relationships with many shelters, and rescue dogs from the Southeast, Midwest, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico along with all the states where we have volunteers.
