Meet Abby, a petite blue merle female Australian Shepherd, who is in need of a very expensive surgery in order to save her life and help her with her emotional issues. You see Abby came to use with some issues, resource guarding, separation anxiety, and an odd little cyst on the side of her face, that all the anti-biotics in the world could not clear up. One day this cyst actually popped and started to ooze some of the grossest stuff. We took her to our rescue veterinarian who has been at our side since our inception, CARE Animal Hospital of Libertyville, in Libertyville Illinois. They performed a major surgery setting our rescue back almost $500.00. Poor Abby now had to deal with tubes sticking out of the top of her head and the bottom of her chin. The pictures are hard to look at, and probably even more painful to her. But the story didn’t end there, it turns out that she was born with a birth defect that meant she had an issue with the development of her ear canal.

This brave little girl will need an expensive surgery, one that will require a specialist, who is well versed in this type of procedure. This procedure called a "TECA" will change her little life forever.

Aussi Recue Midwest is a rescue with a heart, and a mission, to save Australian Shepherds from shelters, families that lose their homes, or find that an Aussie was not the right companion to bring into their home. We as a rescue agreed to take those Aussies into our arms, those that we feel have a chance to become great friends and partners in a home that will love them, forever.

Our rescue is a small regional organization, and we are requesting your help to offset what amounts to a large amount of money that we don’t have on hand to pay completely at this time. Your help, to help us recover and even just pay previous expenses would be greatly appreciated and Abby would would also be forever grateful.

Every penny raised through this campian will go to help Abby.
If you can not not donate, we are also in need of foster homes in the following states.. Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin. You can help by going to our website and applying to be a foster parent for these wonderfull dogs.
