MARS is the first rescue group devoted exclusively to the Miniature Australian (and Miniature American) Shepherd. Incorporated in 2005, a small group of volunteers have worked tirelessly to rescue and support these wonderful dogs and to provide support to their owners with training, health, and behavior education. Our goal has been to insure the dog and owner have as much information as possible so that the relationship will last for the lifetime of the dog. MARS volunteers assists Mini Aussies of all ages, large and small. We are an all-volunteer organization that relies on donations and fund-raising to support our efforts.
