Have you ever considered offering a Staffordshire Bull terrier a forever home. The answer maybe "no" it maybe "yes" but before you decide please see our




and reasons you may be surprised by for considering a Staffordshire Bull Terrier






Welcome to our website and we hope you find the perfect companion for youself. Before you start your search please do take a minute to read about our appeal to find loving new homes for some of our overlooked residents. At Animal Helpline we try to help any breed who needs our help space permitting, for this reason a majority of the dogs we do take into our care are the ones who may wait longer for a new home.

A large percentage of people looking to help a rescue dog will want a Spaniel a Labrador a small dog or a Collie type. The plain crossbreed the Staffordshire Bull terrier the large dog will all be bottom of most peoples list or not even make that list.

This appeal is a push for that dog, the one people will pass and not even give a second glance to, the one who if you saw a picture of you would quickly pass over, the one who may not have the looks but the nature that would just be perfect for you.

Here at the rescue we are constantly raising funds to help cover our vets bills and our fundraising team do a wonderful job. Recently though we have had three dogs who have come in to our care who all need operations and our vet bill has again risen to huge amounts. Our little Yorkie needs a dental, our Labrador needs a ear operation and our new Akita needs a operation on his nose. Any donation is gratefully received and any amount helps greatly.

Thank you.

Please meet Bob and Barton two unwanted, unloved dogs who have found safety with us. Bob and Barton's story began when one of our volunteers asked us if we could find room for these two, we agreed and they travelled all the way from Romania to our care. Now for sure without coming into our care these two would have perished. Bob arrived in a poorly state, suffering from mange, bald all over his backend, just skin and bones he was moved in to a foster home. Barton arrived with pneumonia and had to spend several days at our vets. This time of year we know things can be tight but we are desperate for funds to help cover the large vet bills we have encountered with these two.
