These are taken directly from the charity's constitution. A charity's objects describe what the charity has been legally set up to achieve. They do not necessarily describe all of the activities the charity carries out in order to achieve these objects. Object:
To alleviate the negative social impact of stray, abandoned and unwanted Staffordshire Bull Terrier (herein referred to as SBT) and Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross breeds (herein referred to as SBTx) in communities and council pounds throughout the UK by rehoming these dogs to suitable homes in Scotland (only) and offering advice and support to dog owners UK wide. To promote responsible dog ownership and humane behaviour towards SBTs/SBTxs by educating members of the public through our online platforms (website, Facebook, Twitter) and community events. To relieve the social burden of overbreeding of SBT/SBTx by promoting the benefits of spaying and neutering of dogs and offering help and support to the public in accessing affordable veterinary services for this purpose. To reduce the number of stray/missing dogs by promoting the benefits of microchipping dogs for identification purposes, the importance of updating data held on the chip when changes occur, and assisting various agencies involved in the re-unification of missing/stolen dogs, so that information on a dogs whereabouts can be made available nationwide. To provide members of the public looking to re-home a rescue dog with a dog that has received all necessary veterinary treatment, been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and been assessed for temperament whilst in kennels/foster, before being rehomed. To provide lifetime back up to the owners of dogs rehomed by SSR, this includes taking dogs back into our care due to changes in owner circumstances should they be unable to continue to look after their dog, or due to welfare concerns. (No dog is permitted to be passed onto a new owner.)
