From time to time Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida participates in events to increase awareness of Scottie rescue and familiarize the public with Scottish Terriers. Our upcoming events will be listed below.
Another Highland Games event is happening in NE Florida on February 24, 2024 at the Clay County Fairgrounds, Green Cove Springs, FL. Two of our volunteers, Kathi Overby and Amy Snowden, will be representing STROF at this event.
If you want to help please comment on this post or send us a PM and we will get your information to Kathi & Amy.

We are counting down, and are now only 5 months away from the big show weekend.
You won't want to miss this!
May 16 - 18, 2024
We are so excited! Our Florida Scottie breed club, Scottish Terrier Club of Tampa Bay (STCTB) has been selected to host the 2024 Scottish Terrier national rotating specialty show. This is both a great honor and a wonderful opportunity to highlight Scotties!
The show brings folks and their dogs from around the country and Canada. It will be a weekend of beautiful dogs, fun events and socializing with friends old and new. We have activities planned for all our Scottie’s- show dogs and couch dogs alike- and a special rescue parade.
The theme is Olympics, Scottie Style- "Mingle for the Medals" (a nod to the summer Olympics occurring in 2024).
Several Scottie-loving groups are collaborating to plan and carry out this fun event, including:
Scottish Terrier Club of America (STCA)
Scottish Terrier Club of Tampa Bay (STCTB)
Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida (STROF)
STCA Health Trust Fund
There will be lots to do- jobs big and small for which we will need many volunteers. We're looking forward to a strong showing of Scotties and their pawrents in Ocala, Florida at beautiful World Equestrian Center (WEC). More information will be posted as it becomes available in monthly "countdown to the Scottie Olympics" posts on our website and Facebook, and those of our partners.
Please plan to get involved, and spread the word about the upcoming events to Scottie lovers and friends far and wide!

Scotties and their pawrents alike all had a great time at the STCTB annual spring picnic on Saturday, April 15th at Dade Battlefield Historic Park in Bushnell, Florida. There were 34 Scottie people and 20 Scotties in attendance on this beautiful Florida day. It included a pot-luck style meal, individual pet portraits taken by member Mitchell O'Rear, lure course runs, a brief membership update meeting, raffles and club merchandise sales, games and a boutique table. Dawn Dayringer's Emma had the fastest lure course time of the day, and Board member Colleen Rafatti won the door prize raffle. Great fun was had by all!
