The Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association was organized in 2002 as a joint venture between two breed clubs. Members of both Bull Run Australian Cattle Dog Club and the North Atlantic Australian Cattle Dog Club had been rescuing cattle dogs for years. It was decided that rescue activities could be more efficient if there was a stand-alone rescue organization not encumbered by breed club activities. Our purpose is to save our beloved cattle dogs from abuse, neglect and abandonment. Although both clubs jointly founded ACDRA, independence for the new organization was built in to the startup agreement and, after a period of time, ACDRA will stand on its own as an independent entity, working on its own merit and its own set of policies and procedures. The goal is to work in a three-way partnership to create a stronger networking community for the salvation of the many needy cattle dogs.
Adopting a friend
All potential adoptive homes, are required to complete an adoption questionnaire; (this helps us get to know you and your family, which will in turn help us match you with the right dog). Plus an adoption contract once an adoption is finalized.
Please visit our web site for more detailed information concerning our adoption procedures, or if you're interested in volunteering for the ACDRA. There, you will also find our downloadable adoption questionnaire.
