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!
