Rescue Scottish Pets aims to help shelters by providing them with a place where they can advertise their pets in need, but also to help those wanting to rescue one place where they can view pets form many shelters.

Note that Rescue Scottish Pets is not an actual shelter so does not take or have any of the pets shown on the site. You must contact the shelter directly who has the pet by clicking on View Shelter's Contact Details beside the pet you are interested in.

If you want to rescue a pet but cannot find the right one on the site, I may be able to help as not all pets are listed by shelters I have contact with.

So just drop me an email (see Contact Me in menu at top of site).

Welcome to Rescue Scottish Pets.

A site dedicated to helping shelters rehome and rescue dogs, cats, rabbits and many other pets in Scotland.

You will find dogs, cats rabbits in the care of shelters all over Scotland that are in need of rescue on Rescue Scottish Pets.


So many dogs lose their lives everyday as they can't find homes while breeders continue to churn out new pups. So please rehome, don't buy!

Borders Pet Rescue's dog park

Fantastic news... our Dog Park application has been officially approved!!! It will be all systems go from now on.

This training and exercise area is planned to be for the benefit and use of the dogs that come into our centre and not for the use of the general public, certainly initially.

Our dogs are currently not allowed off lead when out on walks and we really need the park to enable them to do what comes naturally to them, for example: run, play and interact with each other. Many have issues that need to be overcome before a successful rehoming is a possibility, ranging from behavioural problems, stress related problems, obesity/lack of fitness, a lack of even the most basic training and, very importantly, poorly developed socialisation. Others come in as much loved and well balanced family pets due to unforeseen circumstances. Either way they all need to just be dogs, around other dogs.

Hopefully everyone can see that we need such an area to help the dogs that come into our care to aid with their rehabilitation, fitness and social skills development.
