Ways to help
Border Terrier Welfare


Welcome to our page dedicated to supporting the cause of Border Terrier Welfare! Here, you'll discover numerous ways to make a meaningful difference in the lives of these wonderful dogs. Whether you're considering adoption, eager to fundraise, interested in browsing our online shop, or keen on supporting our affiliated merchants, you'll find opportunities to contribute to our mission of caring for Border Terriers in need. Join us in making a positive impact and enriching the lives of these beloved companions.

Make a Donation

Your donation matters. It directly impacts the lives of Border Terriers in need by providing essential care and support. Whether big or small, every contribution helps their journey to a better life.

Apply to Adopt

If you are thinking about offering one of our Border Terriers a new home, we invite you to contact us in the first instance by either approaching the nearest BTW representative, or by emailing or by completing our website contact form.

Our aim is to provide dogs with a home most suited to their needs. Therefore, before any dog is rehomed, a home visit will form part of the adoption process before we match to you to a Border Terrier.

As a registered charity, we are wholly dependent on the donations, gifts and fundraising activities by ourselves and others.  We are grateful for amounts raised no matter now large or small, we recognise small donations all add up to larger ones, and together they enable us to do what we do through the generosity of those, like you, who give to Border Terrier Welfare.
