We are immensely proud of the achievements of our volunteers in such a small space of time and the passion showed for helping re-home Kerry Blue Terriers.
To ensure longevity we felt we needed to make some changes to enable us to continue to help as many Kerry Blue Terriers as possible.
As some of you will know just over a year ago we started the kerry blue rescue page on Facebook to help kerry blue terriers who find themselves in need of rehoming or find themselves in rescue. In May 2016 we started our own website and since then the interest and support has gone from strength to strength. Unfortunately since the launch of the website we have also seen the amount of Kerrys needing our help increasing.
In order to promote confidence and provide a professional and legal platform we felt that it was important to fully register the organisation as an official rescue. It’s also fair to say that given the
increased amount of Kerrys needing new homes we couldn’t have reached our vision (being able to help any Kerry in need) without registering the rescue.
As such; It gives me great pleasure to announce that as of 1st September 2016 the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue is fully and legally registered as a non profit making organisation.
By registering the rescue it not only proves our intention to be visible for many years to come to help Kerrys in the UK who need help but that we are also completely transparent in our intentions.
We are now in a position where we can fundraise and receive donations so that we never have to turn away a kerry in need. We will endeavour to keep the administrative costs low so that as much of the donated funds will go directly to whatever is necessary in order to rehome the kerry so as to ensure that the kerry has the best possible transition into their new home.
No funds are used to pay any of the committee members nor volunteers in our network.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters for everything done so far. Having your support gives us confidence to really push forward with the rescue; ensuring that we can continue to help find Kerrys in need their loving forever homes.
Mark, Bridie and Emma.
Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue is a non-profit organisation which consists of a group of dedicated enthusiasts based in the UK who volunteer their time and skill to care for Kerrys in need. We are dedicated to helping Kerrys find their loving forever homes.
Wherever possible we work with both current owners, caretakers and rescue organisations who have to give up their Kerry because of difficult circumstances as well as finding loving new homes in which to place them. We also help existing rescue organisations find suitable homes for Kerrys in their care. We take considerable care throughout the process of the adoption, helping both the Kerry to adapt to new circumstances and educating new owners about the responsibilities associated with opening their doors and their hearts to this wonderful breed.
We have a network of dedicated volunteers who assist with house checks, dog assessments, matching of dogs to their potential new owners and providing their own homes for temporary placements while we find permanent homes, amongst many other services. We also remain committed to the new owners after the adoption to ensure that the transition for the Kerry is as tranquil as possible and has our life long support.
We will endeavour to keep the administrative costs low so that every penny of the donated funds will go directly to whatever is necessary in order to rehome the Kerry. No funds are used to pay any of the committee members of our network. The various costs include veterinary procedures, behavioural training, transportation and in some cases costs of care homes where no free option is available whilst we find a permanent home.
