Your Help Is Urgently NeededAFTR was contacted recently by the Abandoned Terrier Rescue in Southern California about a dog they had taken in that needed a lot of help.
Belle was relinquished to Abandoned Terrier Rescue in Southern California just before Christmas, 2012. Even though she was only 8 months old, she was in a deplorable condition. She was soaked in urine and the pungent odor of it signaled infection. Both her eyes were edematous and she appeared to have blind spots on the cornea. Her coat was matted and stained with urine.Read more... Link
American Fox Terrier Rescue
My wonderful friend Terry Cerisoles (President of American Fox Terrier Rescue) tells me that many of you continue to wonder and ask about Blaze, our Miracle Girl, and that I must do this now – and I know it’s time.
My heart breaks to have to tell you that, to my great sorrow, we lost our Blazie on April 10th. Please forgive me for not announcing this earlier. So many of you followed her story, donated money for her care and sent gifts, love and prayers. The truth is that Blazie’s passing was just the final stroke on a horrendous three months for me last winter. I simply could not talk about any of it or respond to any messages until now.
American Fox Terrier Rescue is individuals and small groups of unpaid volunteers all over the US and Canada that take in Wire and Smooth Fox Terriers from animal shelters and help re-home dogs being given up by owners. Each group is independent but works together in a network of caring people who love Fox Terriers and want to help these dogs.
A Rescue dog is a dog that is in need and the breeder or owner cannot or will not help. American Fox Terrier Rescue takes Smooths and Wires from animal shelters and when there is room, from owners that can no longer keep them and the breeder is unwilling to take the dog back.
We help dogs who have lost their homes though divorce or death of their owners. Many come from wonderful homes, but though life changes, the dog needs a new home. American Fox Terrier Rescue groups are often best qualified to find that new home.
Fox Terriers in animal shelters usually only have a few days before being put to sleep. American Fox Terrier Rescue moves quickly to try and get these dogs out and safely into rescue. Most are wonderful pets, they have just fallen on hard times.
