Tax-Deductible Contributions

On behalf of WTCARES, I would like to thank everyone who has helped us in our mission to assist Welsh terriers in need. Without your kindness and generosity it just would not be possible.

We have seen the numbers of Welshes needing rescue and rehoming grow greatly over the years. While we are still doing many rehoming of dogs from one home to another, we have seen more and more dogs coming to us from shelters and puppy mills. These are often the dogs who need us most. They require vet expenses to cover everything from shots to operations to teeth care and their fostering period is often longer getting them ready for, and finding, the right home.

Recently, we took in six puppy mill dogs, including an eight week old puppy. Everything that needs to be done medically will be taken care of. When the phone rings or we get an email, we never know if we might need to help one dog or twenty. We need always to be able to say, “Yes, we can take them and we can help.”

Please remember WTCARES and its work with your continuing support.

Darby in Kentucky


My name is Darby and I am looking for a forever home. For the last year, until rescued in December, I lived in the backyard of a house in Lexington (KY). I was left behind when my "temporary" mother moved. A neighbor fed me, but it was pretty lonely in that backyard, really hot and then really cold when winter and the snow came. I'm in a real "Welsh" home now and wonderfully clean "inside and out." My rescue parents are good to me, but they have a "basketball team" of dogs already so I think I need parents of my own.

I admit to being a "big boy" of almost 31 pounds, but I'm not obese. I'm really just a big, "cuddly bear." They say I am about 6-7 years old and my new vet agrees. I've been diagnosed with dry eye, but my vet has that under control.

Take a look at me in my new winter coat. Don't I look handsome?

I have had all my shots and I am ready for adoption. Please call or email if you would like to have me as your new friend. And, of course, make sure you have an adoption application on file with WTCARES, please.

I am living with Peggy and Tony Gaughan. You may reach them at 859-241-1051 or I hope I can celebrate Spring in my forever home very soon.


Almost Spring at WTCARES!

While the winter winds still howl (bark?) in many parts of the country, we are all hopeful that Spring is just around the corner. You may not see many Welsh listed on our pages right now, but that could change in an instant.

While not having many dogs in rescue is a blessing, we know it is frustrating for those who want to add a rescue Welsh to their hearts, homes and families. Please be patient and stay in touch. Check back here often and email the volunteer listed if and when you see a dog whose profile interests you.

Thank you so much for your support of WTCARES. It is truly appreciated.

Wishing you - and your animals - the happiest of holiday seasons!

The holidays bring out the best (and the worst) in humans. It is a time of thanksgiving, of celebrations and of joy. It is also a time when many, overwhelmed by stress and worry, can no longer care for their beloved animals.

In this holiday season, all of us at WTCARES would like to take a moment to thank you for your continued support and for the love you show our beloved Welsh Terriers each and every day. We hope these photos make you smile!

Sweet Heidi

Heidi has been a busy girl. Five years old, she is a former kennel dog and full-time mom. Now it's time for a "me" life for her! How can anyone resist that face?!

Heidi is all Welsh - funny, affectionate, spirited and cute as a button. She is great with people, but too bossy to live with other dogs, male or female. She is also good on the grooming table - even with toenails - and is hoping for many spa days in her future as she enjoys her retirement from motherhood.

This lovely little Welsh girl is in Tennessee. For more information, please complete and application and contact Lyn Hollis at or (731) 584-6530.
