Clive and Audrey run the North East Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue in County Durham and have been involved in rescue for many years. Also involved in the show dog world, their Nozac prefix is a well known and respected name.
The rescue's aim is to offer advice and information to owners and help with rehoming dogs if necessary.
We are in desperate need of more foster homes.

John & Gwen Laker work from their kennels at Blean near, Canterbury, in Kent. They first became involved with showing Staffords in 1977. Over a period of time, they became committed to helping unwanted dogs, so in 1990 they became part of the South-Eastern rescue team.
Unfortunately, of late, due to the breed`s upsurge in popularity and the undesirable practice of breeding in ignorance and / or for profit alone, we have witnessed a huge demand for rehoming Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
So many dogs are in need of Veterinary work, so the raising of funds is vital, the group is always looking for help in this field. Also, we do get older dogs in, cast aside in favour of a youngster. It is hard to re-home them, but they do have a lot of love to give.

Norma's Rescue is based in Leicestershire but actually covers most of the Midlands area. She, along with her husband Richard, purchased their first Stafford in the early eighties and there began a lifetimes dedication to the Breed. She first became involved with Rescue by helping with home checks and assessments finally becoming Co-Ordinator for the area.
Norma has seen a great change over recent years where the number of unwanted dogs has grown beyond all reason, adding to an already demanding and often heartbreaking situation the only reward being that of a successful rehoming which gives the dog a new chance in life. Often these animals are mistreated or sorely neglected and desperately need a little TLC, or they may have been in a loving home where due to a death or illness the dog has to be rehomed through no fault of his own. Homes are desperately needed but not all lifestyles are suitable for this boisterous, affectionate but demanding breed.

Barbara has been involved with breed rescue since 1979. In the beginning the number of dogs passing through the scheme was very.low. It is a very different story today, with so many Staffords looking for new homes.
Help is needed in several ways.We are always looking for homes and people to check them, so if you can do that we would be pleased to hear from you.

Having been involved with rescue to varying degrees since my school days, it wasnt until I had my first Stafford 30 years ago, a rescue, bred on the back streets who was in a bad way at a young age due to having been abused and neglected, that I had an insight of what the breed is faced with.
Over the years I learned a lot more about the back street situation and indeed more about Staffords and what a wonderful dog they are, which led me to become more breed specific.
My life changed direction on saving my second death row Stafford who had no name at the time, she was just a number! October 2012 RF1M Stafford Rescue was born, since then i have learned much more about BSL and founded Staffordshire Bull Terrier Awareness Day 25th May with the intention of educating the general public about the true nature of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and its plight.
