We always sent a newsletter to our supporters and donators to keep them up to speed with anything happening in the rescue and with the dogs we are currently helping to rehome.
As it's half way through our year and with the unusual circumstances we're all facing, we get it pertinent to upload the latest report on to the website and our Facebook page.
thanks you so so much to you all for your continued support of the KBTR, without you all we wouldn't be able to continue to help Kerry's in need.
The KBTR team.
One of the rescue's brilliant supporters, Stephanie Israel, has handmade and donated these two adorable reversible dog coats to raise funds for the KBTR. We can't thank Stephanie enough for her kindness. They're just adorable.
We are going to hold a silent auction. Please email Emma on firstname.lastname@example.org stating your winning bid and on which coat (Coat 1 or Coat 2) you'd like to bid on. Emma will then collate any bids sent in and will inform the KBTR Facebook page daily of the current winning bids. The auction will close on 15th March at 12:00 noon.
Thanks as always for your kind support, we really appreciate it. All monies raised will only ever go towards helping future Kerry's in need. If you have any questions about the coats, please just email us to ask.
A massive massive thank you again to Stephanie, you really are a star and your continued support of the dogs and the rescue really is greatly appreciated.

Coat number two is reversible, one side in multi-coloured cotton fabric. The other side is a fleece fabric with monkey faces on & flowers. This side also has a little pocket sewn on with a flower button decoration.

These adorable Kerry's are in need of their loving forever homes.
These three amazing dogs are looking for their loving forever homes. All 3 are in boarding kennels and we can't believe that they're still waiting for that loving pillow to call their own.
Whilst they're being well loved and cared for Kennels they deserve a family and especially with winter coming a warm fire place to lay in front of. It is our mission to have these babies settled in their new homes ready for Christmas.
Please see their stories below and if interested in opening your home and hearts to one of these babies then please email us on email@example.com . You won't regret it.
This is the adorable Blue who is looking for his Loving Forever Home through no fault of his own. Sadly he's been with us in boarding kennels since the 4th June 2018. Whilst he's being amazingly cared for and loved in the Kennels in Cumbria (they adore him up there) he really deserves a pillow and family to call his own.
He is 5 years old and although isn't keen on other dogs he does respond to a firm voice. He is a lovely cheeky boy who walks great on the lead, loves to walk, explore and play and loves his human servants and is definitely a ladies man.
Stunning Woody has been with the rescue in boarding since 27th July 2018 and is looking for his loving forever home. He is currently in boarding kennels in Scotland.
He is 9 years old and looking for a new home due to a heartbreaking set of circumstances.
Woody is a strong willed, loyal boy who's very affectionate and loves people and children.
In typical Kerry fashion he can be selective with other dogs however he does have a few friends where he walks. and has been good with a few of the dogs in boarding kennels.
He really is a sweetheart and deserves a loving place to call home.
The adorable Elsie HAs been in boarding kennels since 4th August 2018 and is looking for her forever home.
She is 7 years old and currently in Boarding kennels in Cumbria.
She is sadly looking for her a new home due to change in circumstances for her previous family.
Elsie is a real love in so many ways and loves her cuddles and to play. She is good with older children but is selective over the doggy company she keeps.
She loves to play but also likes to chill and has won over the hearts of those in the boarding kennels.
She is a real sweetheart and we can't believe that she's not been rehomed yet.
We are delighted to announce that our Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue Calendar 2019 is now available to order.
Our calendar is A4 and is jam packed full with 20 photos of kerries, all whom the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue have helped rehome.
We have also had some fantastic Poop bags for you to purchase. The Poop Bags are fully biodegradable and have our logo on, so never be caught short without one again.
We currently are in desperate need of foster and forever homes for a number of Kerry Blue Terriers who are looking for loving homes in the UK and Ireland. Three of these dogs are currently in boarding kennels and whilst they're being well loved and cared for it's not an ideal situation and is also a costly one for the rescue and they really need to be in a home environment. They have been in kennels for 2 months now.
The rescue covers all costs with regards to foster homes and all you need is the ability to show the dog lots of love, exercise and to work with the rescue over their care.
In addition to the dogs above who are looking for foster homes we also have a number of other Kerry's currently looking for their forever homes. They can all be found at
We are a nationwide rescue and for that perfect home we can transport the Kerry's anywhere in the UK or Ireland. If you would like to register your interest then please contact the rescue at firstname.lastname@example.org for an interest form.

It is with a heavy heart that Murphy's owners have asked the rescue to find 7 year old Murphy a new home whom they have had for 4 years.
Murphy is Dog Aggressive and his owners have taken many steps to ensure that he and other dogs are safe and this must be clearly understood by any potential owner. He is also uncomfortable around young children
Murphy is a very chilled out dog when he is with you cuddled up for the evening, he will make anything his chin rest and makes himself comfortable in his basket or on the bed.
If you work during the day or leave him for hours on end he will not be happy and will wait in the window for you, but he won’t wreck any furniture and will be very happy to see you when you return.
He responses to sit, down, off, up, here, come, wait (stay), paw, choose, no, leave, drop commands and takes good instruction from a strong leader.
Murphy enjoys toys but there is one condition to adopting Murphy that is you also take his stuffed crocodile soft toy, it is his most treasured toy in the world he even had it when he came to us.
Murphy is exceptionally territorial, he will bark when he hears noises and protect you with his life. If you invite anyone to your home, he will demonstrate his bark. With introductions you must instruct him away and sit whilst leading your guest in, once approved he will be very chilled and accept many belly rubs from them.
After you get to know Murphy he will be very tolerant of you, you can relax, rough-house or play chase, but he is not good at fetch.
Murphy will only be rehomed as an only dog and with no young children and needs a firm leader but he will shower you with love and become the most amazing and loyal boy you could wish for.
If interested in offering Murphy a long part in your heart and home then please contact the rescue for an interest form on email@example.com
The 30th September 2017 saw the end of the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescues first financial period.
Right from the outset we felt that it is important to be transparent on how the Rescue is operated and funded and so it gives us great pleasure to share with you our first annual reports.
If anyone has any questions or queries regarding the reports then please contact one of rescue team members below.

Joe Moriarty is going to be running the "Perkins The Great Eastern Run" on Sunday 8th October.
He is running this half Marathon on behalf of The Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue, to raise funds for this wonderful breed who come into rescue.
The Rescue is very close to his heart because of the fondness he has for this amazing breed thanks to the Kerry's we have owned over the years.
Joe has only been running and training for this half marathon for less than 4 months and what started off as a joke between him and his friends soon became a serious thought for Joe.
So please donate something, doesn't matter how much, to The Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue and support Joe on this great event.
Thanks all. Xx
Helping find Kerry blue terriers find loving forever homes and sharing their stories.
