About Us
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue is entirely run by dedicated volunteers, ourselves dog owners. We take in unwanted dogs and we work very hard to find new loving homes for them. Many Staffordshire Bull Terriers that come into our care are badly neglected, some have Mange, many are underfed and often under socialised with other animals and people. Some are handed over to us by owners who are no longer able to care for their dogs, genuinely through no fault of their own and some dogs we get are cruelty cases.

All of us at Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue are entirely voluntary and without our team of dog loving, volunteers we would not be able to continue with our work. We have a daily struggle to find sufficient funds to pay for the necessary care for the dogs in our Rescue and many of our volunteers work very hard to find the necessary funds. We all work tirelessly to improve the lives of the dogs in our care.

Many of our volunteers also have jobs but still continue to work hard for the Rescue. The tasks for our volunteers are many: fostering, admin, website, home checks, transportation and assessment. Many of our team also undertake sponsored fundraising activities as well.

and the dogs
Many dogs that we take in are actually abandoned by their uncaring owners, put out to the Rescue or on the streets without any thought or care of the poor animal. We also work closely with, Police, Social Services, & various Pounds throughout the uk

We constantly hear the same excuses for putting a dog into Rescue, being:

Too busy working to look after the dog
New baby
Can't afford the medical care and / or/ food
Don't want the dog anymore
Moving house and not allowed animals
Untrained (whose fault is that ... ?)

Almost all of the excuses we hear are pitifully similar and should have been thought out before getting the dog. For us here, at the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue, it is heartbreaking for us and very difficult for us to understand how anyone could abandon their dog so easily and recklessly.

ALL the Staffordshire Bull Terriers that come into our Rescue need and receive careful assessment before we would ever consider rehoming them. Many of them need rehabilation, nursing back to good health, expensive medical care, training and socialisation with other animals and sometimes with people. Our dedicated wonderful Foster carers take these dogs into their homes and look after them, assess them and socialise them with other animals and people. The dogs are then ready to find a new permanent loving home.
