With the increasing popularity of the breed more Staffys are ending up in animal shelters or as unwanted pets. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are energetic dogs that need to be part of the family. They simply cannot be left in the backyard.

We have a deep knowledge and passion for this wonderful breed. There is no ‘use- by’ date placed on the dogs we rescue – they are cared for and loved as long as it takes until a suitable ‘Forever Home’ is found. All are de-sexed, microchipped and vaccinated prior to being re-homed. A lot of time and care is taken to match the right Staffy to the perfect family.

In 2019 with the aid of a local government grant and the donations of our amazing supporters we completed building our new rescue facility. Our kennels provide a safe and loving environment for emergency cases with nowhere else to go.

Our rescue service relies on donations. Stafford Rescue Victoria is an ATO endorsed Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) charity. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
