We hope that you will become part of the SWAT Family.  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.

Area We Cover

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.
