NCTCA Rescue Program

Available Dogs



An important part of our Club charter is to run an active Cesky Terrier rescue program.  We are committed to ensuring that no Cesky Terrier is abandoned in a time of need.  

Milosh, one of our first rescues

The purpose of NCTCA Cesky Rescue is to aid any Cesky Terrier who may need an advocate to act in his best interests.  Cesky Rescue will provide foster care, veterinary treatment and temperament evaluation before placing any Cesky Terrier in a new home.  Most dogs will be neutered or spayed before going to their new homes.  Cesky Rescue will not purchase dogs.  This service is for dogs whose breeder is unknown or unable to help any dog of their breeding.  The NCTCA maintains that all breeders must be responsible for all dogs bred by them throughout the lifetime of the dogs.  

NCTCA Cesky Rescue is part of a not-for-profit organization and relies on donations to the NCTCA Rescue Fund.  When a dog is relinquished, a donation is usually requested.  Those who adopt rescues are also asked for a donation to offset costs incurred while the dog was under the care of the rescue program.

Additional donations from individuals are always greatly appreciated.

Often people looking for a rescue Cesky want a young dog, most requested being a 2 year old female.  Please keep in mind that rescues come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and condition.  Consider opening your heart to an older rescue, or one that has medical or behavioral issues.  These dogs can have so much to offer, and you will be repaid many times over for your kindness.

Milosh, 11 years old in Sept 2004


We have had several rescue situations over the years, but fortunately they have not been that common.  We thank our members for their generosity in supporting rescues in the past, and for rising to the occasion when Cesky Terriers have needed their assistance.  As the breed gains popularity, an unfortunate consequence is more dogs in rescue, so ongoing support of rescue is always critical.
