Second Time Around Aussie Rescue, Inc. is also dedicated to educating the public and all Aussie owners of the unique temperament, proper placement and proper, ethical breeding practices of the versatile Australian Shepherd. Our goal is to achieve the day that rescue of the Australian Shepherd is no longer needed.
This site is operated by volunteers in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennesse. If you live in another state, we can direct you to the Aussie Rescuer closest to you. That person may work with Second Time Around Aussie Rescue, Inc. or one of a number of other Aussie Rescue organizations in the US and Canada. Other STAAR sites may appear as volunteers are found to help maintain them.
When adopting a dog that is in our foster care, Second Time Around Aussie Rescue, Inc. does ask for a donation. These donations enable us to continue rescuing and placing Aussies. Second Time Around Aussie Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit public benefit corporation and run solely by donation. Dogs who are not in our foster care but are in our listings from private owners, will be placed for free. The owners may only ask for the cost of spaying or neutering the dog in order to be eligible for our listings. (Only spayed or neutered dogs are in our listings.) Donations to Second Time Around Aussie Rescue, Inc. are appreciated and are tax deductible.
