Welcome to National Wheaten Rescue, Inc.

National Wheaten Rescue Inc logo

The mission of the National Wheaten Rescue Inc. is to assume the responsibility for the rescue, evaluation, rehabilitation and placement of pure bred Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers that have been relinquished by their owners, abandoned or found.

Statement of Purpose

NWR, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of America and regional Wheaten clubs have joined forces to build and maintain a constant network of national support, information and resources to aid Wheatens who are in need of being rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed. Our rescue program is funded by donations from adopting families, club members as well as fundraising endeavors.

NWR provides a wide scope of services. We have many volunteers in each state who provide foster care, transport and support. We work closely with our local Wheaten Clubs that provide their own rescue programs.

Here are a few of the services NWR provides:

  • Rescues pure-bred Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers from shelters
  • Counsels owners who are having behavioral issues with their Wheaten
  • Receives Wheaten’s from owners who are no longer able to care for their dog
  • Provides transport for relinquished dogs
  • Provides foster care for relinquished dogs
  • Provides ongoing non-financial support for dogs that were placed through the rescue program
