Irish Terriers, for many reasons, find themselves homeless. Tough economic times and failing health are the primary reasons owners have come to the Irish Terrier Rescue Network seeking assistance in finding their beloved pet a new family. Irish coming from shelters, backyard breeders, and puppy mills are on the increase as well.
The Irish Terrier Rescue Network (ITRN) is the only 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit public charity dedicated to the Irish Terrier in the nation. Our mission is to rescue, provide safe haven, and re-home abandoned, neglected, and unwanted Irish Terriers regardless of pedigree or circumstance.
We were founded in December 2010 with a few simple goals: ensure that every Irish Terrier has a hearth and a home to call their own, mentor new owners, and educate the public about the breed and rescue in general.
ITRN is a busy and happy place. Available Irish is the place to read about all our Irish in need of new homes. Check out Adoption INFO to find information about our adoption policy, procedure, and to complete an application. Happy Tails is the place to visit to read about our red dogs’ new beginnings. Many owners share memories of their past Irish in Memories. Services provides information about the support ITRN provides – you can read about our owner rehome program there.
