is “Saving Scotties in the Sunshine State!” The best interests of the Scottie are always primary, as we serve as their advocate.
We are dedicated to the rescue and placement of homeless and displaced Scottish Terriers in Florida. We do not adopt our rescue Scotties outside the state of Florida.
These dogs come to us from a variety of sources. Some are abandoned by their owners or are turned in to an animal shelter. Others are picked up as strays and never claimed. Occasionally, owners must give up their dogs because of medical problems, moving into retirement homes, divorce, or a new baby. Some become homeless because they outlive their owners.
We take them in, love them like our own, and ensure their medical needs are taken care of.

In order to accomplish this mission, the team at Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida focuses on the following activities:
rescue all Scotties that have been lost, abandoned, or voluntarily surrendered by its owner.
take full legal possession of the Scottie by obtaining a signed release for owner surrender or through placement partnerships of various shelters. The Scottie is then transferred to one of our approved foster homes.
it is the intention of the rescue to obtain care for any rescue Scottie prior to placement in an adoptive home.
placement is at the discretion of the STROF and will be based upon the best match for the Scottie.

All dogs are fostered in volunteers' homes—we do not have a shelter. All rescue activities are performed by volunteers. There are no paid staff.
Prospective adopters must submit an application and complete a multi-step application process for consideration. An adoption fee (amount varies) helps offset our costs.
