American Manchester Terrier Club Rescue –

The AMTC does not have the human resources to foster, rehabilitate and rehome rescue dogs.

However, the membership is still committed to helping Manchester Terriers in need through adoption listings

on its web site and grants towards the care of rescued Manchester Terriers.

If you would like to make a donation to help rescued Manchester Terriers, the AMTC has a dedicated fund for this cause.

Please contact the rescue chair for donation information.

If you would like us to list a rescue, please email the rescue chair a photo, description of the dog,

and contact information for the public to find out more information. We do not screen adopters for other

organizations and will simply refer interested parties to you for screening.

If you would like to learn more about rescue grants, please see the information below.
