Adoption and Foster Application
ATRA operates in and accepts applications to adopt for the following states:

ATRA also assists National Airedale Rescue with Wyoming by taking applications for Wyoming and forwarding them to National.
ATRA does not have a set fee to adopt one of our rescue Airedales. We ask adopters for a donation at the time they sign the Placement Contract. The average cost to rescue an Airedale was over $1200 in 2013. This includes the initial veterinary visit with vaccination, heartworm test, spay, neutering, and treatment for any medical condition. In addition many dogs require boarding while we search for a foster home or the right adoptive home and some require “boot camp” for behavioral issues. Every dog goes to his new home with a new collar, leash, and ID tag. Because of this we suggest that you consider an adoption donation of $400 to $800. ATRA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donations are tax deductible for most.
