JinxOn July 8, 2011,  American Fox Terrier Rescue volunteer Kim Z. in Ohio was able to rescue 7 Wire Fox Terriers from a breeding facility.  After much local and long distance planning, the dogs were all spayed and vetted, Kim made room in her vehicle and picked up 7 newly neutered, stinky dogs!  1 male and 6 females Wire Fox Terriers, ranging in age from 7 - 13 years old that have spent their lives as breeding dogs.

BabsThey've had thorough vet exams including getting them all up to date on vaccinations and heartworm testing.  American Fox Terrier Rescue is covering their medical costs and is committed to ensuring that any additional medical care is funded.  Kim is hoping to get the OK to bathe them some and clip some hair so they don't smell so bad!  We're crossing our fingers for that, too!

BlueGrassKim was able to get their nails clipped, which were very long.  They're doing fine at her house but are going to need foster homes that can work with them on a more individual basis.  On Monday, 4 of them will be going to the kennel of a good friend of Kim's and of Rescue who will board them for a while as we try to figure out where they're all going to go.  Right now, 2 have a foster home set up, but we need fosters for at least 4 more.  If you are interested in working with rescue and would consider being a foster home, please go to our Contact Page and send an inquiry.  These are special needs/special circumstance dogs, so please, serious inquiries into fostering only.  Priority will be given to homes within driving distance of the Canton, Ohio vicinity - Ohio, western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Indiana, Michigan, etc. 

JessyEven if you can't foster, the care and transport of these lovely little Fox Terriers is going to be expensive and we need your help to fund their way to a new life. Your donation, however big or small, is greatly appreciated.  Until now, these dogs have lived their lives as livestock, and it's time they learn what it's like to be warm and loved!

MayahThings are still pretty up in the air with the dogs, and everyone is extremely busy - especially Kim! - but we'll post updates and photos both here and on our Facebook page as things progress so that you can see how your donations are helping these dogs.  And as soon as they're ready to be adopted, we'll let you in on that as well!

SheebaThanks to all of you American Fox Terrier Rescue has saved a lot of dogs over the years.  In these difficult economic times, we know that your charitable donations are more sought after than ever.  We hope you are able to open your heart to these wonderful dogs and give them the new lease on the life they so richly deserve.


Together, we can make this happen!
