As the guardians of the Norwich Terrier, The Norwich Terrier Club of America is prepared to “rescue” any purebred Norwich without a home. All members of NTCA are members of the committee and are to be on the lookout for a Norwich in need and to do what it takes to handle any situation. Fortunately, it is a very rare occurrence to find a Norwich Terrier in a shelter. Occasionally, a Norwich may need to be rehomed due to personal circumstances and should go back to the breeder. If the breeder is not involved, our committee will step in to assist.
In this day and age of the internet, it is easy to search for a Norwich in a shelter. However, Norwich has also become the popular “buzz” word to label a dog in an attempt to attract a new home. A photo of a dog thought to be a Norwich is very helpful with the process of identification. If you think you may have come across a Norwich in a shelter and have the ability to provide a photo, it can be time saved to get to that dog sooner and to properly identify the dog.
Rescue is not about finding you the perfect pet. Rescue is about finding a loving little dog a perfectly loving home. If you are looking for an adorable young Norwich to meet your “wants” we encourage you to go to our Breeder Referral link to contact Norwich Breeders.
If you are seeking to rescue a special needs dog that may be middle aged or elderly, may have health issues, a dog who needs an owner blessed with patience and love, then you should certainly contact our rescue chair. There may be a dog that needs you.
