Who We Are

Australian Terrier Rescue is a (501C)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed to assist in the safety and well-being of any Australian Terrier in need.

Whether a rescue from shelters and other endangered situations or a placement, homes relinquishing their aussie, we offer whatever assistance is needed on an immediate basis.

Our goals are to provide emergency, regular, or long-term assistance for both the aussie and adoptive home, evaluate, restore and rehabilitate the physical and behavioral health of the aussie, transport, foster, and properly place in an appropriate, loving home that will ensure the best possible future for the dog.

This organization is made up entirely of people who volunteer their time and money to foster and place these little dogs in caring, loving homes.

All dogs that come into Rescue will be neutered or spayed before they are placed in new homes.

The expenses of this rescue work are paid for solely by tax-deductible private donations and fundraising activities.
85% of the dogs we take into rescue are older, have a disability, or often come in pairs.

We do sometimes get dogs that are between 4-6 years old.
We very seldom have young dogs or puppies!

If you are truly interested in a rescue dog that is an older dog, or a dog with a disability, please e-mail us via the form on the APPLICATION page.

We will keep your name on file and contact you whenever a dog is available for rescue

Sometimes, as volunteers, we get busy with our own dogs and lives, please be patient in receiving an e-mail from the Coordinator assigned to your state.
If you have not heard back from someone in a week, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Check out our AVAILABLE AUSSIES to see who needs a home at the moment.

We are desperately in need of foster homes and sponsors for our older and disabled dogs.
