"IN MEMORY OF FUND"




September 11, 2011: The NEW "In Memory of" Fund will now include any canine owner who wishes to have their dog's memory honored. This fund will be made available to dogs in OH - MI Rescue with additional medical expenses, who may require treatment above and beyond what a normal adoption fee could provide. This way we can help give as many deserving dogs as possible the best chance at life.

Pedigree Logo

The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive Foundation has provided a grant to AuCaDo Rescue through consumer donations and contributions from the PEDIGREE Brand. The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive campaign inspires people to adopt dogs while raising money for every PEDIGREE branded product sold.


AuCaDo Australian Cattle Dog Rescue has many projects in the works. Some of the rescues medical needs have been met or extended care while awaiting adoption. We are starting a mobile vet spay / neuter clinic and vaccination clinic for any dog or cat in need. Our first clinic was May 2009 and we hope to hold them monthly.

    Sponsoring A Cattle Dog Foster
    Would you like to help with rescue but are unable to foster? Please consider sponsoring one of the precious foster dogs on our website.
    Most of our rescue cattle dogs have vet bills in excess of their adoption fee. Constant health care along with monthly heartworm and flea preventatives are costly. We are looking for Rescue Angels to sponsor our fosters monthly by either sending a check for $25 each month or making payments via paypal. By choosing a special foster that you will help by covering their additional vetting that their adoption fee will not cover, you are allowing us to continue our rescue efforts and save more cattle dogs. Your sponsored cattle dog's foster mom will send you an email with updates and new photos, telling you how they are progressing and enjoying their new life.

    If you would like to make your sponsorship payment by mail, please send a check for $25 to:
    AuCaDo Rescue Mid-Michigan
    3861 W. Twelve Mile Rd.
    Remus, MI 49340
    or click on the "sponsor me" heart button beside the special foster that you would like to sponsor on our available pages.
