FTN does not do fox terrier rescue directly but supports those groups that do. The Rescue Committee is made up of five people with rescue background and administrates the Rescue Fund. There are guidelines for applying for grants from the Fund that are on this website under Rescue Fund. The primary purpose of the Fund is to help those who have a Smooth or Wire Fox Terrier (shelter/rescue group) with medical bills above and beyond what they can handle that will help the fox terrier find a new home. This Fund is not available to the general public or owner, only to shelters and rescue groups.

The Daisy Committee is a five member committee that administrates the Daisy Fund. This committee/Fund is to help those who have adopted a Smooth or Wire Fox Terrier from a shelter or rescue group. There are guidelines for the Fund at Daisy Fund on this website. It is to help with medical bills, etc., that an owner may have after adopting their fox terrier. These would be life threatening diseases, etc., that have to do with end of life or quality of life problems.

This committee handles the everyday work of putting together our great bi-monthly newsletter. Many articles and columns are included in each issue, with news from around the world. We have our Dishing with Ms Daisy question and answer column (very tongue in cheek) where Ms Daisy ( a Smooth fox terrier) answers questions from other fox terriers about living with humans and other animals. We also have serious articles about both breeds and many other topics are covered. The newsletter is now available in PDF form in color and with links.

The Education Committee works on ways to get the word out about the Smooth & Wire Fox Terrier. We are here to help educate the public about what it’s like to live with these breeds and what the needs are in a home.
The Education Committee produced the FTN brochure that explains about the club. This is available to anyone that would like to pass them out to those interested in these breeds. They are great for booths at dog shows, pet fairs, etc. They are free, just contact us at email@example.com and we’ll be glad to send you a packet.
The Education Committee also handles putting ads in magazines, etc. These are to direct people to our website for more information on our breeds. We are always looking for new ideas to help the public understand our fox terriers.
