Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Aussie Rescue Midwest is a Not-For-Profit breed rescue. We save Australian Shepherds, Mini's and special need Aussies, as well as Aussie mixes. We rescue and adopt Aussies in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kentucky, and Missouri.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a dedicated group of Australian Shepherd owners and lovers. We feel the Aussie is a one of a kind breed, that is often misunderstood, and many times made a pet for all the wrong reasons. We want to rescue them, retrain them, find families that will understand and work with them as well as help the public understand better the breed that we love.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
