Areas Zia Australian Shepherd Club Rescue Serves

Zia Australian Shepherd Club supports Australian Shepherd rescue in our local community, typically, but not limited to, New Mexico. We have rescued and successfully placed around 100 Aussies throughout the years as part of our club's activities. Zia ASC maintains a separate fund to pay for spays/neuters, shots, heartworm tests and other medical expenses to help ready a dog for adoption. Members take the dogs in to their homes as foster dogs until a matching new home is found. Our club holds fundraisers throughout the year to pay for medical expenses that exceed the norm and we ask our adopters to reimburse us for the customary costs such as spay/neuter, shots, and heartworm tests.

Zia Australian Shepherd Club Rescue's Adoption Process

Our screening process includes one or more phone conversations with adopters, and if it seems like a match between potential adopter and dog, is followed by a meet and greet. Depending on the situation, a home visit may be part of the process.

Once it is clear the adopter and the dog are a match, the adopter fills out an adoption agreement. The essentials of the agreement say that the new owner will care for the dog physically and emotionally, the dog will be an indoor/outdoor dog, the dog will receive regular veterinary care, and that if the dog needs to move to a new home the new owner will contact Zia first.

Adoption fees vary - typically between $150 and $250 depending on the level of medical attention and other expenses the dog required.
