BTW supports The Kennel Club UK Chairman's statement on Ukraine

Like many others, Border Terrier Welfare have been saddened by the horrifying events unfolding from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.  The cost of both human and animal life is just devastating, along with the displacement of those trying to flee the violence and oppression.
