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
Too busy working to look after the dog
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.
