Classical rescue is the process of identifying, obtaining, caring for or rehabilitating, and re-homing, apparently purebred Border Terriers.

Dogs come into rescue from animal welfare shelters, animal control pounds, off the streets, or are surrendered by their owners. They require foster care or rescue-paid boarding, complex services, and sometimes the local involvement of other breeds’ rescue volunteers. In the process, health (including neutering), hygiene, and social needs of the dogs are identified and met while well-matched new adoptive homes are found. These are “rescue dogs”.

Rescue volunteers also spend countless hours fielding inquiries from potential owners in need of breed information as well as providing information to Border Terrier owners related to health, behavior or training.

These latter two activities help prevent the future need for rescue or re-homing.
