Adoption Application

aussie adoptionAussie Rescue of Minnesota, Inc. (ARM) is a non-profit adoption and referral service dedicated to placing Aussies with new, permanent homes. All of the Aussies available for adoption have been temperament tested, spayed/neutered, are current on their shots, and are heartworm checked and/or treated. If a suitable dog is found for you, we do ask for an adoption fee to help us cover any medical work we have done for the dog and to help us continue to help other Aussies in need.

To help us find the best match between you and the dogs we have available, please complete this application. After a representative has reviewed your application, you will be contacted to discuss any dogs we have available that would suit you. Normally a representative will contact you within 3 days of receiving your application. We do, however, reserve the right to refuse any applicant.

Please be patient with any inquiries or applications submitted.
