The largest Welsh terrier rescue organization in the United States is WTCARES, founded through the Welsh Terrier Club of America. Another source is RescueMe.org, which provides a map of Welsh terrier rescues in each state. Petfinder also lists dogs adoptable through rescue by breed and location.
Facebook is another way to contact rescue organizations; for example, RescueMe has a Facebook page. Facebook pages let potential adoptive pet owners view available dogs and make contact with the breed rescue community. A dog featured online attracts many applications for adoption, so becoming part of the community lets rescuers know that someone is looking for that breed of dog to adopt. Organizations usually update Facebook pages more quickly than websites, so rescues often publicize new dogs and activities there.
Adoption information and forms are normally available online through the rescue websites. The online information notes any special accommodations a dog requires, which can include medical conditions requiring special care. Adoption through a rescue requires providing some personal history, including previous experience with dogs, veterinarian contact information and information about home circumstances.
Rescues rarely have puppies, since most rescues focus on rehoming dogs. The rescue first evaluates the dog's needs and temperament, provides a full medical checkup and deals with any existing medical problems. In some cases, the dog needs help with socialization or behavior, which the rescue provides before placing the dog with a new owner.
