Do you feel you can open your heart and your home to a dog in need?
fostering is a good way of helping a dog in need and also seeing if having a dog is for you.
The rescue pays all the bills for that dog. We help with training for the dog and support for you.
Please look at our foster form to see if you could help a wee dog

She will soon be looking for a new home with another dog. Thank you to everybody that donated to help Jasmine and her foster mum who has done a wonderful job looking after her. Fosterers do save lives.
5th July 2022
Jasmine was picked up as a stray in the UK and taken to a local council dog pound when we were contacted about her plight and asked if we could help her.
Of course we said yes straight away, Jasmine has just arrived with us today and has went straight into a foster home. This wee girl is only a puppy around 7/8months old and already you can see what a terrible life she has had.
She has cherry eyes that are infected, she was emaciated and her legs are crooked. How can anybody allow this to happen to a dog.
Jasmine saw our vets today and tonight she is cuddled up with her foster mum safe and sound. She will need an operation on her eyes (in a few weeks) and some help with her legs.
Thank you to Joanne for making us aware of her plight, Nick for transporting her to us and her foster mum Cheryl for opening her home to this lost wee soul. More info to follow in the coming weeks watch our FB and website.
SSR is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers who like you have jobs and family commitments. They give their free time to help save these abandoned dogs and give them a future.
No one receives salaries or expenses. All fund raised go to helping the dogs.
We now have coordinators covering the Edinburgh/Perthshire/Fife/Dundee/Angus/Aberdeen/Borders area and a few other areas within Scotland.
Our volunteers help the rescue with dog walking, transporting, fundraising, social networking, supporting fosters and new adopters as well as supporting each other.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join us. If like us you can spare a few hrs a month to help the dogs then please contact us.
