What we do: We evaluate Australian Shepherds and Australian Shepherd mixes from selected shelters and private owners no longer able to keep their Aussies.  If we judge a dog suitable for placement with an average adopter, we foster it in private homes and get to know the dog.  We then post the dog to our website and place it in an adoptive home where the energy levels, expectations and personalities are a good fit. 
Think of us as a "doggie dating service"!

Glad Dogs Nation

Get unique toys and other items your dogs will love and NEW SPIRIT gets 20% of your total purchase!

Glad Dogs Nation adorable handcrafted dog toys start out as unwanted children’s stuffed toys. They wash them in hot water using biodegradable detergent. They remove hard eyes and put cute appliques in their place. They replace the hard noses with colorful pompoms. And they always add at least one squeaker inside. Then they offer the toys at a price below what you’d pay in a pet store – so no one needs to shed a tear if the toy is destroyed during play.
Finally, they spread the gladness by donating 100% of their profits to Glad Dogs Foundation which funds initiatives to rest of 2013, they are donating 20% of every purchase of toys and anything else at gladdogsnation.com to New Spirit Aussie Rescue when you use coupon code NS4AR.

A Foster's Love

Gambit's rescue originated in New Orleans. He was rescued by a private individual and when he was found to have heartworms, she reached out for help from New Spirit. He was transported to Atlanta by a trucker and that's where I met him.
Gambit was adopted and returned twice before he found Becky, his third and final person. She didn't mind that he was silly and did strange things...she laughed as I did at his crazy antics. He refused to hide his crazy nature and believed wholeheartedly in letting his freak flag fly.
A few years ago, Becky's job required a great deal of travel and we were blessed to be in a position to watch Gambit a few times per month for Becky and he became a surrogate member of our family beyond the normal attachment we develop with our fosters.

People wonder why we are so "picky" about where our dogs end up.  Because fostering is
the first step in rescue believe it or not, and some of us always keep our former fosters in our hearts. When they go, they take a piece of us with them.  See you on the other side, handsome boy.
