Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation (KBTF) Rescue Coordinators manage all aspects of identifying and rescuing a Kerry. They also screen Foster Families and arrange foster care, interview potential adopters, place dogs in permanent homes, and provide follow-up to new owners. In addition, they provide education to new and potential owners, and support the Foster Families. The KBTF considers its Rescue Coordinators to be essential to the welfare and proper placement of its rescue dogs
Our Rescue Coordinators:
- Manage KBTF rescues in their area.
- ID Kerries in shelters and recover them.
- Work with pet store owners and backyard breeders who sell Kerries to ensure the welfare of the dogs
- Screen, approve, and assist KBTF Foster Families.
- Screen potential adopters, perform home checks, and provide breed information.
- Place rescue dogs only in approved KBTF Foster Families or pre-approved permanent homes and provide follow-up.
- Coordinate and cooperate with Kerry Club Rescue on joint rescue projects determined by the KBTF.
- Report to the KBTF Rescue Director.
If you have long-time experience with the breed, have contacts in the Kerry community, and an interest in volunteering as a Rescue Coordinator, please review our Rescue Coordinator Agreement and learn more about our Rescue Program. Then contact the KBTF a Rescue Coordinator near you.
