ASCA Mission Statement

The Australian Shepherd Club of America in an effort to achieve the goals stated in the Bylaws, declares the following to be a Mission Statement for the Club:

The Australian Shepherd Club of America is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the responsible breeding and registering of purebred ASCA Australian Shepherds and to do all in its power to bring their natural qualities to perfection.

The Australian Shepherd Club of America is dedicated to the preservation of the Australian Shepherd as an intelligent working dog of strong herding and guardian instincts. (Emphasis ours). The Australian Shepherd Club of America strives to maintain its independent breed club registry and to lead in the adoption of technological developments to protect the integrity of the registry. Innovative programs showcasing the breed and providing expanded opportunities for competition are part of ASCA's service to the breed.

Through education ASCA will promote an atmosphere of good sportsmanship, volunteerism and responsibility for the breed and the breed image to the public.  Using only the highest standards, ASCA's registry, performance and recognition programs will strive, through ASCA competition and participation, to showcase the versatility of the ASCA Australian Shepherd.   The Australian Shepherd Club of America serves it members and affiliated clubs through its Board of Directors.  The Board of Director's duty to ASCA is an active protectionist role regarding the future of the breed, the registry and the club and to preserve the ASCA Australian Shepherd as defined in the current Breed Standard.
