Additional Information

Dear ASCA Membership:

Just to give you a bit more background information: we are Aussie Rescue Placement and Helpline, Inc. (ARPH), a rescue organization serving the United States and Canada.  We are the official rescue organization of the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA).  ARPH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization run entirely by volunteers and donations.  One way our organization can continue to help Aussies is through our annual silent auction at ASCA’s National Specialty (November 1-9, 2019 in Bakersfield, CA).  We hope you will join us in this special project to support ARPH’s important work.  

Since 1992, we have rescued more than 10,000 dogs. This does not include the many more listings and private referrals handled by ARPH volunteers.  The funds raised though the fundraising events will go directly to help with spaying, neutering, shelter transfer fees, immunizations, and injuries that require a veterinarian’s care.  

Again, we hope you will give your membership the opportunity be part of our silent auction and help ARPH.  

You can bring your donations to ASCA Nationals in Bakersfield, CA; or
