How We Use Your Donations

SOAR is an all-volunteer organization...we do not have any paid staff. This means that your donations go directly to assist the Airedales that come under our care and support our rescue efforts.

Our first priority is always the well-being of the Airedales that pass through our hands. We make sure that once they are in rescue, they are brought up-to-date on shots, parasite-free, heartworm free, and spayed or neutered. Each of our Airedales is microchipped. We address any illnesses or injuries and do as much as possible to get the Airedales ready to live healthy lives in their new homes. We work to solve behavior problems that otherwise might keep an Airedale from being successfully adopted. Each Airedale is also given a new collar, leash, and tag to take with them to their new home.

We very much appreciate your support!


We Thank Our Donors

Because of the support of generous donors like you, SOAR is able to help homeless Airedales in Indiana, Ohio and Michigan find their way to new families and a bright future. We appreciate your support and more importantly, so do the Airedales

Aggy Peiffer

July 5, 2004- August 22, 2012 Aggy Peiffer came into rescue alone and uncertain of her future. Her boundless energy and curiosity had managed to contribute to her homeless situation. The only thing Aggy was looking for was love and she surely found what she was looking for when she found Donna and Terry Peiffer.…

February 9, 2013 I lost my Alice last night. She has had trouble walking for the last eight months and was finally tired of trying. She was my best furry friend. I had her for 10 great years…she was 14 when she crossed the bridge. She was my home visit girl and she welcomed all…

Andy Nims-Billion

Andy IV was in a pet store in Belleville, MI. Annette Hall asked us to go check on him. He was sick, malnourished and half the weight and size he should have been for his age. We took him home with us and called in the State Dept. of Agriculture on the store through our Vet. Subsequently,…

Arthur T Airedale

12/8/2019 Suddenly and without warning, Arthur T Airedale left his family, Chuck Stone and Farris Stone. He was the noblest and most regal Airedale. A best friend and a patriarch. “Good” or “Bad” were misnomers – he was the ultimate “Airedale” thru an’ thru. Somewhere over that rainbow bridge, there are houses made of bacon,…

Bazil Goral

Bazil was such a sweet natured and sometimes sassy boy and would never hurt a fly. Up until the last few years we treasured our walks on the bike trail with him. He eventually lost most of his eyesight but always knew when you were eating or a piece of food had dropped to the floor. Our most favorite…

Beatrice OH

Dear Ms. O’Shaughnessy, Beatrice came to us as “Belle,” a huge 90+ pound, furry Airedale (who I’m not sure had ever been groomed) with very few manners and that strong Airedale attitude. She had bounced from several homes, though her exact path was unclear. I know that she broke through fences, attacked small dogs, and spent most…

Betty M. Mellott

The grandma of Jake Sprankle, will be seeing him again, this time running after a cat or snatching food off the counter as he once did. Grammy Betty who verbally expressed her dislike for dogs, routinely would call Jake and ask him to come over to her house as she had just baked him some…

Breezie Ragan

Breezie had ACL surgery three years ago. It was a bad injury not attended to by her former owner. She fell a lot, but she was queen, and lived more than three great years here. She came from a shelter, found tied to the gate at night with a note stating, “We don’t want her anymore.” She was…

Callie Gramlich

I recently lost Callie, a Wire Fox Terrier, on December 26, 2014 and many of my friends gathered around me for support during this time. Callie had many friends, not only Wires and Welshies, but Airedales as well. We would like to give a little something back. In Memory of Callie and her Airedale buddies. Thank you, Nonie Gramlich

Charlotte O’Shaughnessy

Charlotte crossed the rainbow bridge this afternoon. I held her close, I kissed her face, I scratched her all over, and tried to burn all the specialness of her earthly body into my memory. My little hoppy girl started to slow down a few weeks ago. On Sunday she fell down the stairs. We took…

Baxter Arnold OH

When serious illness forced Baxter’s family to surrender him, Jim and Cheryl Arnold decided they would act as Baxter’s Aire-angels. The Arnold’s were without an Airedale and, lucky for Baxter, they decided to take this sweet boy into their family. He is adjusting well and enjoying his new life. Thanks to Lynn, Barbara, and Tom…

Bea Burns OH

We’ve decided that “Belle” was not quite her, so we dignified her with Beatrice, which quickly became Bea, and quite often she’s our goofy Beazus!! She’s such a silly girl! She’s quite a large dog – nearly 90 pounds – and full of life and energy. Over the last 6 months (I can’t believe we’ve…
