I cannot begin to tell you how delighted we are at SSBTR for being awarded a Combo Van by Support Adoption for Pets after our recent application. Thank you to the Support for Adoption Team for awarding it to us . Having this van will allow us to be able to move more Staffords who need us and contribute a great deal in helping us continue our work. It’s not often we get good news in the world of rescue but I have to say getting the phone call from the lady saying we had won was one of the most fantastic calls I have ever had. I do apologise to her though for squealing like a Scottish banshee to the extent she couldn’t understand a word I was saying 😀….( I must admit also to having a “wee greet” after the call)….
I want especially though to pay homeage to the volunteers who helped me with this application and who all came together as the great staffie team they are. They put up with my many late night phone calls and helped me put it all together. So to Emma, Janette, Fee, Martin and not forgetting Clare thank you all….
.We have of course not to forget the rest of the SSBTR team of volunteers who always go beyond and above the call of duty to help our beloved breed and rescue. Without them SSBTR would not be the force for the staffies it is……….
A huge congratulations to all our fellow rescues who also won a van you all deserve it..please have a look at our video and see if you can see your dog, each and every one of them are our dogs and they all have their own stories and are now in loving homes..
So in a few weeks if you see a wee van travelling around the roads of Scotland with our sign on it , give us a wave and a toot……..SSBTR will be coming to a town beside you !……😀
All the very best
The Scottish Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue is an entirely voluntary organisation. We are totally dependant on donations and fundraising efforts. To this end we are always very grateful for any donation you can afford, however small it may seem to you. We also organise fundraisers every year - see our Events page. These events are always lots of fun and we guarantee that at the dog show there is a class for EVERY dog whether pooch, Pedigree or three-legged mutt.
