Please help us rescue ACDs in need
We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. Donations help us rescue ACDs from shelters where they are facing euthanasia, transport them to foster homes, care for their medical needs and more.

If you are a shelter with an ACD in your care, please contact the shelter representative responsible for your state (below). If we can provide foster care, we will. If we do not have a foster home available, we will post the dog here on our website and on our very active Facebook page.

If we have never pulled a dog from your shelter or organization, we request you complete
this application so we have the information we need to get started.
