PRT Welfare 2004
The purpose of PRT Welfare is to try to ensure that no KC registered PRT suffers either physically or emotionally through no fault of its own or because it finds itself suddenly homeless.
Our purpose is to maintain a register of people willing to re-home needy PRTs and endeavours to re-home dogs as quickly as possible - after assessment and any veterinary treatment. All re-homed dogs come into the ownership of PRT Welfare 2004 and their health and well-being is monitored throughout the rest of their lives.
The breeder from whom the PRT was obtained should be approached in the first instance but if they are unable or unwilling to take back the terrier they bred, KC registered PRTs can be accepted into welfare for re-homing from the current owner(s) once a relinquishing form is filled out. We ask that owners, looking for a new home for their pet, are totally honest in their answers on the form as this will help us find a suitable new home more easily.
Prospective rescuers are also asked to fill out a form which will tell us what type of dog would be most suited to the home they offer. Of course honesty is also essential from rescuers too, as we do not want to have to home a dog more than once if we can help it. Losing its owner and home is not a happy time for a PRT, but then to have to go through it all twice is very distressing and can result in an unbalanced dog which can then be very difficult to find a suitable home for.
We like to leave a dog in its original home if at all possible until a new home is found but, if we have to, we can take it into emergency kennels while assessments are made. We also assess prospective new homes which we think will be suitable before we allocate a dog to them.
