What they do………………………………
SHWA(UK) works to address the crisis in Siberian Husky Welfare here in the UK on three fronts. The first objective is to rescue and re-home a husky who’s living conditions have become unsatisfactory. This can happen for a wide variety of reasons and does not necessarily mean that the animal has been put at risk on purpose. For this reason the second aim of the charity is to offer advice and counselling in order to try and educate owners in a way that means they can adapt to the needs of a husky. Finally, the SHWA(UK) conducts an ongoing education campaign designed to discourage the public from buying a Husky from irresponsible and unethical breeders.

What SHWA(UK) says about their charity……………….
At the same time, the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain Welfare Scheme (which at the time was the only dedicated breed rescue scheme for Sibes in the UK as a whole) was going through a crisis of its own and in December 2006, the club decided that its Welfare Section could only deal with KC registered dogs bred by or owned by club members. This meant that there was no breed specific safety net out there for the vast majority of unwanted Siberians. In response to this, a group of like-minded individuals organised the founding meeting of SHWA(UK) in February 2007.
