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.

The online raffle has now closed, but tickets can still be purchased in person at our AGM on Sunday 20 October 2019, with the listing of prizes shown in our News. Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch between our new BTW website and PayPal, we do not have notification of raffle tickets bought since approx 1pm 17 October 2019. If you have bought any in the last day please email Jimmi to inform him.  Thank you.
