Stafford Rescue Victoria was started with the intent to establish a central point of contact for those who had lost or found a Stafford. Unfortunately this service is fast becoming one of the most used. Today our aim is:
*To promote the welfare of unwanted and destitute pure bred Staffords regardless of age if the quality of life is still good.
*To raise funds towards this aim. To maintain funds for SRV.
*To operate an adoption scheme for the protection of these dogs and to provide a happy and secure home.
With the increasing popularity of the breed more Staffords are ending up in shelters or unwanted pets. In some cases the ‘Staffy’ has become the fashion accessory of youth.
For some it’s a fleeting encounter as they are faced with the needs of an energetic dog that quickly becomes too demanding on their time. It’s a fact that Staffordshire Bull Terriers need to be ‘Part of the Family’. They simply cannot be left in the backyard.
With a deep knowledge for the breed the current rescue co-coordinators are Jan Hutton & Linda Szirer, along with several other volunteers.
There is no ‘used- by date’ placed on SRV Staffords, they are cared for and loved as long as needed until a suitable ‘Forever Home’ is found.
