Who We Are

HeRD of WY, Inc. is a non-profit organization that seeks to help unwanted dogs find appropriate homes. HeRD of WY was formally organized in 2008 out of the recognition that there are many herding breed dogs and mixes that "fall through the cracks" in Wyoming and have no safe place to go. The predominant focus of our efforts is Australian Shepherds, Border Collies, Australian Cattle Dogs and mixes thereof. However, it is not uncommon for us to assist or place other herding breed dogs and mixes as well. This rescue effort includes pulling dogs from shelters, placing them in foster homes, assessing temperaments, behaviors, and special needs, providing appropriate veterinary care, placing dogs in appropriate homes, and follow-up support to adoptive homes

Ways to Help

HeRD of WY, Inc depends on willing individuals to make rescue of herding breed dogs happen. Our biggest need is for foster homes. If you are able to help in this way, please email for an application. Transportation is also needed for dogs coming out of shelters throughout WY to their foster homes. Additionally, HeRD of WY is always happy to accept donations of dog supplies, new or used. Crates, leashes, collars, shampoo, dog food, towels and blankets, etc. are happily accepted. Monetary donations are also accepted and are applied directly to the care of our animals, usually for veterinary expenses.

Adopting a friend

Please email wyoasr@gmail.com for an application. Our adoption procedure is as follows: 1) Submission of application 2) Review of application and contacting of references 3) In depth discussion with foster home and/or rescue director about the dog(s) applied for to be sure that the dog will be a good match for the home and vice versa. 4) Home check (if out-of-area we wil arrange to have a rescue or individual in that area complete the home visit). 5) Potential adopters meet with dog(s) and decide if they wish to adopt that dog. 6) Adoption: signing of contract, adoption donation, and a trip home with your new family member.

Visits by Appointment Only, Please

HeRD of WY is not a shelter facility. All pets are in foster homes and can only be seen by appointment.
