Sometimes Airedales can find themselves in need of a loving new home, through no fault of their own. This may be due to a change in family circumstances such as moving, divorce etc , for medical reasons or simply because people have not realised the time and commitment involved with owning an Airedale Terrier.
Whatever the reason, unfortunately sometimes Airedales do need to be rehomed - and thanks to the rescue schemes run on a voluntary basis by the various Airedale clubs around the UK, the majority of them are successfully placed in new homes.
MCATC's Rescue Service has been run since 1998 by Alaine Lockett - with five Airedales in 2005 alone being successfully found new homes. If you live within the Midlands area and feel you could offer a permanent and loving home to a rescue Airedale, then please get in touch with Alaine as follows:
