Silky Terrier Rescue

Our Pet List

Who We Are

The Silky Terrier Rescue Charitable Trust works throughout the United States to help Silky Terriers in need of new homes. We have rescuers in many areas throughout the country, so you may find a silky to adopt somewhere near you!

Silky Terriers are wonderful little dogs. Full-grown, they weigh about ten pounds, give or take a little. Silkys have long, silky hair, but they do not shed.They are alert, inquisitive, and intelligent. The Silky is a sturdy little dog that often seems to think he's a big dog. Silkys are fun-loving, playful, charming little clowns. They are lovable and affectionate. Even though the Silky Terrier is classified as a "toy" dog, in personality, Silkys are more like terriers...and they can be stubborn and willful.

Adopting a friend

If you are interested in adopting a Silky Terrier that we have posted on Petfinder, please fill out our online application at Adopters are required to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for the Silky, and an adoption fee or donation is also required. To help us make a good match between the Silky and new family, we request and verify references.

We sometimes place our rescued Silkys before they are posted...if we have a good match with one of the applicants that we have in our files. So, if you are interested in adopting a rescued Silky Terrier, we encourage you to fill our our application.

Our rescue program has an email newsletter...if you sign up for our email list, you will receive a periodic update on all of the Silkys posted on our web site, as well as notification by email when a new Silky is posted.
