Welcome to New England Airedale Rescue (NEAR)!

Not. Our. Idea.

May your howlidays be NEARly perfect.

Thank you for sharing your rescue updates with us!

Here's what our rescuers have shared.

There's a very happy ending for an Airedale that really needed NEAR's help.

Faith was surrendered to a shelter because she needed expensive vetting that the family wouldn't provide. Faith had a badly torn cruciate ligament but couldn't have that surgery until she lost a lot of weight (she was obese), plus she had severe intestinal issues that would take patience to figure out. A wonderful NEAR adopter sped to Faith's rescue, and after months of vet visits and much money, Faith is now a happy, loved, active Airedale who sure found the right forever home.
