Welcome to ASRIM


The Australian Shepherd Rescue in Michigan (ASRIM) was founded in 2006.  It is a non-profit canine rescue organization recognized by the IRS as a 501(c) (3) Public Charity.  It is also registered as a Charitable Trust by the State of Michigan.  ASRIM supports the rescue, fostering, verterinary care, grooming, boarding and adoption of Australian Shepherds primarily in Michigan, but also in contiguous states and provinces as resources allow.  ASRIM does not take in or adopt out dogs directly but is associated with Animal Placement Bureau in re-homing Australian Shepherds in need.

ASRIM is supported by 35+ unpaid volunteers who help to transport, pull aussies from shelters, fund-raise, do home visits for potential adopters and most important of all open their homes to foster the dogs who are waiting for their forever homes.  During the 2014/2015 time period ASRIM took in and placed over 50 Australian Shepherds in their FOREVER homes.

We rely on the tireless efforts of our volunteers and the donations of our supporters to help in our rescue and rehabilitation efforts. If you have an Aussie that you love, know someone who does or just love the breed, please consider making a donation to ASRIM. Your donation is tax-deductible.
