The Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity operating nationwide in the US and Canada and dedicated to promoting the welfare of the Kerry Blue Terrier breed in the areas of owner education, rescue, and health & genetics. We are solely funded through donations. To make a tax deductible donation, visit Kerry Blue Foundation Donate
The Foundation will come to the aid of any Kerry or Kerry owner in need, including, but not limited to, Kerries found in animal shelters or pounds, those relinquished by their owners, those left homeless by deceased or incapacitated owners, those found by others as strays, or any Kerry in an emergency situation in need of assistance.
Adopting a friend
If you are interested in adopting, please fill out and submit our adoption questionnaire which can be found at Available Rescue Kerries. As with most rescue organizations, we are staffed by unpaid volunteers, so please be patient when awaiting a response. We check references and perform home visits before making the decision to place our adoptables. Prior terrier ownership and a secure fenced-in yard is strongly preferred.
Please, be a responsible puppy purchaser, and not an idiotic "I must have it now" consumer. DO NOT BUY from a pet store or off the internet! This isn't a pair of shoes. It's a 12-15 year commitment. A member of your family. You MUST visit the place where the pups were born and raised. Otherwise, you are responsible for supporting nasty puppy mills and perpetuating the cruel misery of their caged, neglected breeding stock.
