Airedale Rescue Group

Rescuing and placing Airedales since 2000 in the Carolinas, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.


It is the mission of Airedale Rescue Group to rescue and place the Airedales that come into our group. With a small band of volunteers, we:

Respond to inquiries from Airedale owners who are considering surrendering their Airedales; or to shelters, breeders, or other rescue organizations that have Airedales who need homes;

Ensure that all Airedales coming into rescue are screened medically for parasites, including heartworms; bring required vaccinations up to date; treat or correct any medical issues, and spay or neuter any intact animal;

Evaluate those who wish to adopt an Airedale through an electronic application, a telephone interview, veterinarian and personal reference checks, and a home visit by one of our volunteers;

Follow up with those who adopt from us to ensure that the Airedale is being well cared for and that the placement is sound.

For information about Airedales outside of our region, please contact Airedale Terrier Club for regional rescue contacts.
