About MASR

About Midwest Australian Shepherd Rescue

We are a breed specific, foster home and ALL volunteer based rescue. We service the Midwest States: WI, IA, IL, IN, MI, and MO.

Our mission is to rescue Australian Shepherds and other working breeds from abuse, neglect, strays, and owners in dire need of rehoming.  MASR will support our local communities in educating adults and children for the betterment of these working breeds in the areas of veterinary care, socialization, mental and physical exercise, to use force free and positive reinforcement training, and build relationships with their furry family members. 

“Saving people, one dog at a time.”  is our motto! We would like our dogs to bring joy, love and laughter to the human that adopts them.
