Dedicated to finding the perfect home for every
homeless Airedale in AZ, NV, NM & UT
Donate to the Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue Organization

Welcome!


Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit coalition of Airedale lovers living in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah, all dedicated to rescuing displaced Airedale Terriers in those states. If you live in another area, please check the National Airedale Rescue website for the volunteer closest to where you live.

We hope that you will become part of the SWAT Family. If you haven't owned an Airedale before, read "Is an Airedale the Right Breed for You?"

Every adopter is part of rescue. Adopters take our dogs and "finish" their rescue by making them family members. We are proud of our many wonderful adopters -- without them, we could not continue our work. Updates from happy adopters about life with their companions makes all of the hard work worthwhile.

To Volunteer, please complete an online adoption application and note on the application at the bottom that you are applying to volunteer only. You can also note what areas you are interested in (Foster, Transport, Vetting, Grooming, Evaluation, Local Shelter Check, Applicant Home Check).
