Border Terrier Welfare

for Border Terriers in need

Border Terrier Welfare’s purpose is to care for Border Terriers in need. We work across mainland UK, helping to find homes for BT’s where they will receive the love and the care they deserve. 

Established in 1981, we are a registered charity (Border Terrier Welfare, Registered Charity No. 1116853) and are known to many as BTW and to some as Border Terrier Rescue.

We are managed and run entirely by volunteers, funded by donations in many forms, along with the fundraising efforts of our  numerous supporters.  Our success is wholly due to them.
