The Mountain State Australian Shepherd Rescue is a small group of volunteers who are dedicated to helping purebred Australian Shepherds and "Almost Aussies" - those Australian Shepherd mixes that aren't quite aussie enough to be called a pure. Due to the fact that we are small, we have limited foster space and can not take in to many dogs, but we do try to help where we can through listings and referrals.
We will also courtesy-list aussies and aussie mixes and other herding dog breeds in area shelters and for other local rescue groups. These dogs have not been evaluated by us, or put in our program and can be adopted directly from the contact listing them.
If you or someone you know are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application. Please note, filling out an application is not a guarantee that you will have the option to adopt the dog – we have a thorough screening process that includes personal reference checks and a home visit. We also encourage our prospective adopters to learn more about the Australian Shepherd breed and herding dogs in general.
We have do not have a shelter, our dogs are kept in foster homes throughout West Virginia and neighboring states. We are always in serious need of foster homes, in all areas along the East Coast. If you are interested in becoming a foster or volunteer, please contact us for information. For South/West WV, contact Tami Grandia email@example.com and for North/East WV contact Hope Stewart, firstname.lastname@example.org.
