Aussies in Need

Yay! We do not currently have any ARPH dogs in need of extra support.

When we commit to a dog that requires special care or surgery, these costs can become exorbitant. Sometimes foster space isn't available, and we may need to board a dog temporarily. All of these costs quickly add up.

We will showcase these special dogs on this page, and our Facebook page, to reach as many supporters as possible.



Frank ARPH #14483



Frank needs your help! Frank is a 6-month-old 24-pound red merle who was abandoned. A good Samaritan noticed Frank wandering around his neighborhood. He contacted the Humane Society and got him to safety.

ARPH was contacted so now Frank is being fostered in the Central Indiana area. Frank’s foster noticed vomiting and lethargy, so he was taken to the vet for treatment and testing. After testing, Frank continued to have difficulties and ultimately ended under the emergency care of the Purdue University Small Animal Hospital in critical condition.

Frank had a tough fight on his little paws, but he made it through. He was diagnosed with a PSS – Portosystemic Shunt which means he has an extra artery in his liver which prevents his body from absorbing nutrients and cleaning it. Fortunately for Frank, he can have surgery to repair the shunt and live a normal life. He has been through a lot in his short life and is beginning to thrive with the medical support he is receiving.

With his emergency vetting, testing and surgery, Frank’s bills are near $10,000. ARPH has always been fortunate to have so many caring donors for Aussies with special needs. Any donation, no matter the amount, helps. Please help Frank by contributing to his medical expenses using his personal PayPay button located below. A PayPal account is not needed. Donations can also be mailed. Any donations exceeding Frank’s expenses will be reserved for other ARPH dogs in need.

Rosie ARPH #14478



We are reaching out to you on behalf of Rosie, a 10-month-old red merle Australian Shepherd, who is in urgent need of your support. Rosie was recently surrendered to Aussie Rescue and Placement Helpline (ARPH) due to her owner's financial and personal health challenges.

 Despite her circumstances, Rosie has shown incredible resilience and remains a loving and playful pup. However, she has been experiencing intermittent body tremors and rapid eye movements, which require further diagnostic testing and a potential treatment plan. We have already taken Rosie to Purdue University Small Animal Hospital for evaluation, but we have yet to determine a conclusive diagnosis.

To provide Rosie with the care she desperately needs, we are seeking donations to cover her medical expenses. The estimated cost for Rosie's diagnostic testing is $3,500. We understand that times are tough for everyone, but any contribution, regardless of the amount, will make a significant difference in Rosie's life.

 Donating is easy. You can use the personal PayPal button provided below to make a secure online contribution. You do not need a PayPal account to donate; simply follow the link and enter your payment details.

Alternatively, if you prefer to send a donation by mail, please use the address:

PO BOX 911654
ST. GEORGE, UT 84791

 Your generous donation will not only help give Rosie an opportunity for recovery but will also ensure that other ARPH dogs in need receive the necessary care and attention. Any funds received in excess of Rosie's expenses will be reserved for future cases requiring assistance.

 Please consider making a contribution today to help Rosie receive the medical attention she deserves.

Your support means the world to Rosie and all of us at ARPH.
