We have a number of campaigns and schemes that we are involved in.
HELPING DOG OWNERS
Pet Food Bank
We have teamed up with The Trussell Trust foodbanks in Falkirk, Parkhead and Storehouse in Bo’ness to provide food for pets. We believe and hope this enables people experiencing financial hardship to keep their dogs rather than put them up for rehoming.
Read more about the campaign and how you can help.
We have partnered with Vets4Pets Practices throughout Scotland to offer reduced price neutering for all breeds of dog. By signing up to our neutering scheme owners can take advantage of the lower price and payment installment options.

Create A Staffie Centre
Our aims are principally to ensure that a facility exists to provide shelter, care, rehabilitation and rehoming for unwanted or abandoned Staffordshire Bull Terriers in Scotland. It is our intention to raise funds to create such a centre, where training issues can be addressed, dogs can be socialised if necessary, and prospective new owners can be introduced; to lobby the Parliament to change legislation and to promote responsible and sensible dog ownership by education, promotion of good news in the media and holding awareness events.
Through the build up period, we will continue to rehome dogs on a home to home basis. Our long term objectives remains to obtain suitable premises to establish a “place of safety” for the dogs.
We will lobby the Parliament to change legislation. More effort is needed to persuade the Scottish Parliament that something has to be done to introduce and enforce effective legislation to control the breeding of not only Staffies but all breeds.

We are certain that the problems facing the Staffie affected Dobermans, German Shepherds and Rottwiellers in the past and will involve Akitas and American Bulldogs in the future. This is not a dog problem, this is a social problem.
The only way to avoid the problem of returned dogs is to have a centre where Staffies can be kept and cared for whilst awaiting rehoming.
Sensible & Responsible
We will encourage and promote responsible and sensible ownership of all dogs through public education and awareness events across Scotland, via the media, campaigns and by holding relevant events throughout Scotland.
