Sponsor a Staffie

Make a Staffie Smile Today by signing up to our sponsorship scheme!

Please consider sponsoring one of our dogs that are in long term foster homes. 

Occasionally, we have dogs arrive into rescue that sadly come with severe behavioural issues or health issues. We are so lucky to have a family of amazing foster homes who take these dogs under their wings and provide them with a lifetime of love. 

Our long term fosters are supported by the wings of Staffie and Stray Rescue, this means that the rescue supports all funds associated with the dogs including the likes of food and vet bills. 

We are reaching out to our supporters to sponsor one of our long term foster dogs for just £5 a month to help towards their needs. 

As a thank you for sponsoring a dog, you will receive:

  • A certificate of sponsorship with some thank you gifts included
  • Pupdates and photographs of your sponsored dog throughout the year
  • A Christmas card from your sponsored dog

Marley

Marley

When Marley came into rescue, we were shocked to find that Marley has an underlying illness called Disc Calcification. She was clearly in a lot of pain.

Calcification of the spine occurs when calcium crystals are deposited in the gelatinous fluid that cushions the vertebrae. When this fluid becomes hardened, it can no longer protect the individual bone sections of the spine. This means that Marley will be on pain relief for the rest of her life and which needs managing.

Blue

Blue

Blue was brought to SSR by Birmingham Police after he was found locked in a room in a property. We believe that he could have spent most of his life in this room with little to no interaction with the outside world.

As a result, he has a lot of anxiety and is fearful of strangers.

He is now in an understanding and patient long term foster home who are managing Blue’s behaviour to give him the loving life he deserves.

Denzel

Denzel

After several visits to the vets when Denzel first came into rescue, it was discovered that his leg was fused, we think that this was due to an accident in his past.

There has been discussion that his leg at some stage may need to be removed, but for now he is on long term painkillers.

We didn’t feel it would be fair to rehome him when the vet fees attached to him are so high, so he is now in one of our long term and loving foster homes, where the rescue can support Denzel for the rest of his life.

Buster

Buster

Buster arrived at SSR after very sadly his owner passed away and no-one in the family were able to take him on permanently. Buster is an older boy with health issues, so it was decided that he would be a part of our long term foster programme and he now loves life with his foster parents!

Shadow

Shadow

Shadow arrived with SSR after she was found as a stray and unclaimed at the pound. A year after being adopted, Shadow started to lose a significant amount of weight, she looked completely wasted away and had to be carried into the vet.

After many tests, Shadow was then diagnosed with an auto-immune disease which requires lifelong treatment. The illness didn’t present itself before her family adopted her, so the rescue has offered to cover the costs of treatment going forward.

Kiera

Kiera

Kiera arrived at SSR as an unwanted dog. She was very underweight and very nervous. After having a few foster homes which didn't work out, Keira now resides in one of our amazing foster homes the the foreseeable future. We are unsure of what Kiera has been through in her past, but she is very fearful of people. She has built a lovely trusting bond with her foster mum, but having ongoing behavioural therapy and assessments, we feel that she cannot be rehomed. Kiera is very happy in her long term foster home and will always be supported by the wings of SSR.
