Founded in 2006, Australian Shepherd Rescue in Michigan (ASRIM) is a non-profit canine rescue organization, registered as a Charitable Trust by the State of Michigan. ASRIM supports the rescue, fostering, veterinary care, grooming, boarding and adoption of Australian Shepherds, primary in Michigan, but also in contiguous states and provinces as resources allow. ASRIM does not take in or adopt out dogs, but provides support to other state, regional or national rescue organizations with an interest in re-homing Australian Shepherds in need.
ASRIM is supported by 50+ unpaid volunteers who open their homes to foster and rehabilitate Aussies and provide transportation. In 2013, ASRIM supported the placement of 36 Australian Shepherds into their Forever homes.
