Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:This is the national breed rescue for all toy fox terriers, registered or not. We also rescue, across the country, any small (under 20#) dog in danger who appears in photo or is described as a toy fox terrier. We follow the standards set by the AKC and the UKC, but acknowledge most shelters do not correctly identify breeds, and therefore also work closely with RT, JRT, Chihuahua and small breed rescues.
About Our Rescue Group:Toy Fox Terrier Rescue began as a rescue committee of the American Toy Fox Terrier Club, and over their initial ten years, would take in/adopt @4-5 TFT's per year. ATFTC recommended we separate,due to any potential liability involved in rescue, and we incorporated as a not-for-profit in 2009. We remain a small rescue comprised of volunteers in over twenty states,finding homes in all states and the Cayman Islands for @50 dogs each year. We have formed relationships with shelters in all states, to be notified if a possible TFT is deteriorating or is in danger. The aging population with the economy has seen an incredible increase in dogs without homes, and an increase in owner surrenders.
We will supply dog food(donated) or pet security deposit(micro lending), if that is what is needed for the owner to keep their beloved dog.Our love and experience in animal welfare give us the energy to rescue, but never enough funds, for broken legs, luxating patellas, missing limbs, or the dentals which were never done. We need additional foster homes, volunteers to pull from kill shelters, and always, donations toward vet bills.
