Covid19 (Coronavirus) Situation

Please note that due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, the Government/NHS Guidance, and the Prime Minister’s ‘lockdown’ statement on Monday 23rd March, SHWA(UK) will be unable to carry out our normal rescue and rehoming functions until restrictions are lifted. We are not taking any more adoption applications until we are certain that our volunteers are able to operate without risk. During this time, in order to protect our volunteers and the public, we will not be taking in dogs, carrying out dog assessments, home checks, adoptions, transport runs etc etc. Unfortunately we will no longer to be able to respond even to genuine emergencies. Facebook Pages will of course remain open for information, advice and support, and we hope that the crisis will be over as soon as possible. Please stay safe and pray that we all get through this (and cuddle your dogs)!

The Smarden 18 – URGENT Funds Appeal

18 Northern Breed dogs desperately in need of help – press the orange button for more info, & how you can help, specifically with donations right now.

I want to:

How SHWA can help you:

  • Effective Husky Rescue and Husky Rehoming as well as other Sled Dog Rescue and Sled Dog Rehoming. Both dogs and adopters are carefully assessed to ensure that the right “match” is achieved. Dogs are, wherever possible, neutered before rehoming to remove the possibility of them being bred and adding to the crisis
  • Advice and counselling for husky owners having problems with their dogs, so that they can be helped to keep their dogs rather than giving them up for adoption
  • An ongoing education campaign designed to discourage the public from buying from irresponsible and unethical breeders
  • A pro-Neutering Programme where we help owners with the cost of neutering their dogs (as funds allow). Anything with reduces the numbers of puppies bred has to be a positive step!

“Please adopt me!”

“It’ll be a lot of hard work, there will be hair everywhere and I’ll probably do things you don’t like, but if you are the right family for me, I’ll make it worth your while, with lots of cuddles and fun, until you fall in love with me!”
