Due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, our regular fundraising events are cancelled until such time as the restrictions on public gatherings are lifted. This includes our Sunday Sampler agility trials and our Tamas Traj agility seminars for sure. We will check with Phantom Ridge Ranch about our annual herding clinic - there is a possibility that outside in the fall, the clinic may be able to go forward as it is limited in size to less than the allowed limit.
Since we cannot afford to do what we do on adoption fees alone, and discretionary dollars by supporters may be in short supply, we have opted to offer AB Herding Dog Rescue merchandise through the websites below. They currently include several T-shirt designs created for us by Jessica Archambault of ArchCre8ive. We would appreciate your support by purchasing one (or many) of our t-shirts and wearing them proudly during your daily community walks or bike rides. Of course, please make sure to maintain the recommended physical distancing and stay safe and healthy during this damndemic.
The following programs and/or stores support rescue in various ways - flat rate or percentage donations per purchase or a commission on the sales. We are a listed Not-for-Profit Partner with all of these programs and we would appreciate your support by choosing us as your rescue of choice when shopping on these sites.
Some of the sites have a specific coupon code (or a specific link) to direct the donations to our cause, if they do not actually have a partner directory to choose from. If you follow the links (or click on the pictures), you should be connected automatically to where you need to be to sign up and start shopping.
Thank you for your support!
ResQwalk is a free mobile app that enables you to raise resources for animal welfare organizations, simply by walking.
At the beginning of each month, ResQwalk puts together a ResQpool that includes cash and product contributions from corporate sponsors.
In order to earn part of the pool, simply pick your favorite ResQpartner, start the app, and go for a walk, run or participate in any other outdoor activity that can be measured by GPS and involves a speed of less than 14 mph. At the end of every month, the ResQpool is proportionally distributed amongst the animal welfare organizations on the app.

The Rescue Network offers a host of fundraising & educational opportunities designed specifically for rescues and shelters.
One way they help us raise funds is by purchasing any issue or subscription to the Animal Wellness Magazine and 25% of the purchase will be donated to our rescue. Since 1999, it has been the most influential publication focusing on natural pet health and wellness, as well as pet adoption and rescue. Articles focus on helping people improve their pet's quality of life and longevity.
Another way you can support us is to shop for all natural Life Force products on the Rescue Network page. The unique formulations were designed with rescue animals in mind.
