From time to time, we take in Siberian Huskies in need of a new home.


The reasons why dogs are surrendered to us are varied, but each case sees a needy dog looking for a new home.


Why do we do it  -  time after time?


When people say, "I couldn't foster because it would be too hard to give a dog up"; we say, "How can it be harder than knowing a dog died because no foster home took it in when needed?"


CLICK HERE to see pictures of some of these dogs in their new homes.  Settled in and happy in a secure future.





The Siberian Husky is a northern breed sled dog, which means they have lots of fur and lots of energy and the desire to run fast and far. They don't like to be left alone, so they do best in an active household with a secure fence, no cats, and at least one other dog.

They are fun, smart, funny and paired with the right trainer and technique, trainable with many excelling in agility and obedience work as well as sled racing.

These dogs must be permitted inside the house and taken on family activities and outings.



February  -  give a Husky happy Valentine's Day with the gift of a new home

Currently fostering:  Chelsea   Bella


Bella  -  born 18 December 2013, she had a number of homes around Sydney before falling pregnant and delivering 5 pups in December 2018. Once the pups were weaned, we were asked to foster and re-home her as Bella's owner suffered a hand injury and could not manage a Husky without difficulty.

We took in a way too thin Siberian Husky, who, after a bath and a brush out, showed a real spark of optimism and determination. This dog has the potential to become a happy, healthy and affectionate pet who will stick by you for many years of companionship.

She's a bright and happy mature adult, who is only looking for a calm environment to settle into quietly and make sense of her changed life.

Bella needs a secure yard with high fences and a gate that cannot easily be opened.

Bella is only available to a home where she is permitted to spend time in the house with her people. She's calm and settled indoors, and is toilet trained, provided that you take her outside to toilet every 2 - 3 hours.

Bella walks nicely on leash, but like Huskies of all ages, she can never be allowed to run loose  -  unless it is in a fully fenced off leash dog park.  She has a history of bolting away, and as her life has been so disrupted. it won't take much to set off her insecurities and send her running

Only available to a home experienced in living with a Husky, or other large Arctic breed, and a commitment to daily exercise and weekly dog obedience training classes.

She's available for a donation of $300  which covers Vet fees to make sure she is desexed, vaccinated and wormed.

Located near Singleton in the Hunter Valley of NSW, your inquiries are welcome

Please contact Richard and Mara to arrange a meeting with the possibility of taking Bella home with you, initially on trial.  Bella goes on a 4 week trial, to be returned if she does not suit.

Chelsea  -  a dedicated running mate  -  great racing dog


still available  -  14  February 2019

Born 1 January 2016, Chelsea is a black and white desexed purebred Siberian Husky. Warm brown eyes, an athletic build, and a great running attitude. She is good natured, non protective and gets on well with our other Huskies.

This dog is ready to run in the Winter 2019 race season. She is fit, muscular and has a great work ethic. These attributes make her unsuitable as a pet in an urban situation, however and as there are other "couch potato" Huskies around, Chelsea won't go to a sedentary or too busy household.

Though she was surrendered because she was too boisterous for the family with a toddler and another baby on the way, Chelsea is well behaved around confident children. [Of course, Chelsea should never be left with a child unless supervised.]  She had been given to them as a part grown pup, and without doing enough research on this breed, they took her in. Then realised that a Husky was too high maintenance for them to cope with.

We are seeking a home for Chelsea with a strong commitment to and experience with sledding or racing. Chelsea lives well and quietly in a kennel block situation, and needs daily running as she is fit and has a strong work ethic and an innate need to run. 

If you have 1 or 2 Huskies who race, or are interested in starting to race with one Husky this Winter season, then Chelsea would be a real asset to your team.

Chelsea is a young adult female Husky who needs

1. daily exercise - free running in a fully fenced area would be ideal
2. interaction with other medium to large size dogs as play mates - not necessarily in the same household, but regular access so that she can release some of that energy
3. a good diet of quality food, twice daily, to fuel her system with all that exercise
4. time in the house with the family. A Husky left alone in the backyard becomes bored, and then destructive, or learns to escape.
5. no cats or "pocket pets" as she has a high prey drive and will chase and grab animals from a sheep down in size. She is great with children, though knocks over the smaller ones, and Chelsea respects, listens to and loves adults.
6. a commitment to attending weekly dog obedience training classes. Chelsea has had little guidance or discipline through her life so far, and is learning manners, loose leash walking, and basic commands. This base needs to be reinforced and built on, and enrolling in a dog obedience training class is an ideal solution.
7. a secure and safe yard from which she cannot escape, as this breed will RUN if they get a chance - straight across roads if they get out of the yard. 1.8 metre high fences, preferably of colourbond, are essential and we will not deviate from this requirement.

Located near Singleton in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW, your inquiries are welcome. Please contact Richard and Mara to arrange a meeting with the possibility of taking Chelsea on trial to live with your dogs.  Chelsea goes on a 4 week trial, to be returned if she does not suit.  Adoption fee of $ 300 to cover Vet expenses

Husky Rescue gets to rub shoulders with some high profile people around the country




We are not a shelter

Each dog listed is in a caring foster home

Dogs are given love, training and the attention they require

While in our care the dogs are treated as part of our family

They are shown new things that they may not have experienced before 

-  like car rides, meeting children and interacting with other dogs

We also try to teach them basic house manners and toilet training

We want to make sure they are healthy and happy when adopted

All foster carers operate independently, though co-operatively

We fund our own rescue efforts



This Web Site is an Australia-wide listing of pure breeds of dogs from registered breeders. Includes puppies, mature dogs and rescues in need of homes as well as pages of information on every health and behaviour topic you could think off  - worthwhile bookmarking to dip in when you need quick answers   -    and often has Siberian Huskies in need of homes.
