About Sheffield Dog Rescue

Sheffield Dog Rescue is run by a small army of volunteers with one aim, to help dogs in need. Many of our dogs come to us via North East Derbyshire Dog Wardens and we also receive numerous calls from members of the public asking for help to rehome their pet dogs. We try to help as many dogs as we can, but funding and kennel space makes this a difficult task. We operate a no kill policy and none of our dogs are destroyed, unless advised to do so by our vet for health reasons.

All our rescued dogs receive initial vaccinations, are microchipped, deflead and dewormed. The Sheffield Dog Rescue also cover the cost of spaying / neutering of each dog.

All new owners receive one full year’s FREE membership to Sheffield Dog Rescue and we give a full back-up service to new owners.

Our kennels are located at Mosborough in Sheffield, where the dogs can be viewed by appointment. Voluntary dog walkers are welcomed, as the dogs need to be exercised and socialised as much as possible.

We rely totally on donations from the general public and income from our charity shop in Chesterfield, which is run voluntarily. The shop has a variety of new and second hands good for sale.

About Rufus

Rufus is a lovely natured lad. He loves people and playing ball. He is very strong on the lead so will need a strong owner. Rufus has been in kennels for too long and desperately needs attention and affection on a one to one basis. He will make a loving, loyal companion in return for a little time and effort. He needs a firm but intelligent home where he would be an only pet. If you are thinking about adopting a dog please consider Rufus, don’t discard him because he is a staffy. These dogs make excellent pets with the right owners. He has much to offer, he just needs a chance.

Suitable Home

He needs a firm, experienced home without any other pets. Would be suitable with older children.
