Fundraiser for ARM – Open to the Public – Please join us and win some great prizes!


On Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 a raffle to benefit Aussie Rescue of Minnesota (ARM) will be held at Total Recall in conjunction with the UMASC Conformation Shows and Obedience Trials.  This will be the only ARM raffle held this year so let’s make it the best ever!! 
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Aussie Rescue of Minnesota, here’s a little background information taken from the website:
Aussie Rescue of Minnesota, Inc. (ARM) is a non-profit 501(c)3 adoption and referral organization dedicated to placing homeless Australian Shepherds in loving, permanent homes.
All members of ARM are volunteers and receive no monetary compensation for their efforts. All of our dogs live in foster homes until a suitable “forever home” can be found.
All adoption candidates have been screened by a veterinarian, including but not limited to
         -temperament check
         -health check
         -test for parasites
         -test for heartworms (treated if necessary)
         -current on all shots
If you have a chance, click to the ARM website ( and read about the Aussies available for adoption.  They are all good dogs who through no fault of their own have lost their families and homes.  They all deserve new “forever homes”. 
 If you have anything that you would like to donate to the raffle (dog stuff, people stuff, certificates, services, etc.) contact Carrie Van Horn at Please put “ARM Raffle” in the subject line. Carrie is keeping a list of all donations. Carrie and I can arrange to pick up your donations. You can bring your donation to UMASC’s Year-End Awards Banquet Saturday, February 24th and we’ll take them at that time. If you are not planning on attending the banquet but would still like to donate, we can take donations this weekend at the UMASC shows and trials, January 17th & 18th.  Any donations will be greatly appreciated. 
If you don’t have anything to donate, that’s OK too. Support ARM by buying lots of raffle tickets!! There will be a lot of great donation items!!  
All money raised at the raffle will go to Aussie Rescue of Minnesota. The donations will help fund the various ARM activities including the veterinary screenings mentioned above.  Your past participation in the ARM raffle has been greatly appreciated.  We hope you will continue to support the ARM raffle again this year.  Thank you.
