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).

Meet the handsome long haired lad Billy.

Originally a stray we estimate Billy to be around 3 yrs old and a stunning handsome lad he is.

However don’t let the good looks fool you; he has a wicked sense of humour and his whole mission in life is to have fun. He will need to go into a home where someone will be firm but kind and show him the boundaries.

Billy could be homed with older, sensible dog-friendly children.

It would also be best were he an only dog, so he can get the time and training he deserves. He is neutered vaccs chipped and would really love to be in a home before Santa comes.

Billy is a large dog.

Likes and dislikes:

Holly came to us a stray dog. She is a complex little lady who needs a very understanding, confident and experienced owner. Holly is a shy girl who will be looking for an experienced adult only home who can build up her confidence and trust. Holly can be protective of herself and resources like food and toys. She would benefit from a calm, non-confrontional owner. Holly has mixed with dogs before but can find initial introductions difficult. Holly has a sweet, gentle, loving and playful side too. She loves to be out and about exploring with her carers in the woods and long grass!

Type of home needed:

Holly will be such a wonderful dog in the right home, she does need work and lots of patience and time, but this will pay off hugely.

Dyson is looking for his forever home. He needs someone who is around quite a lot and who has the time and patience to commit to continuing his training. He is an affectionate boy and as you can see, sometimes thinks he is a lap dog!

He is approximately 4 years old and has lived with children. Dyson is currently learning some manners and can be quite boisterous at times but he does love a snuggle. He is not overkeen on other dogs so needs to be rehomed as the only dog in the house. He has lived with a cat but has been known to chase her at times. He would need very careful introductions to a cat and a way to separate them, at least to begin with.

He can be quite vocal in the car but has been getting used to travelling. Dyson is currently living with a foster carer and coming on in leaps and bounds. His recall is quite good and he loves to play fetch with a ball

Jasper is looking for his forever home as his owners are now moving and unfortunately can't take him with them


Jasper mixes well with other dogs and is very playful. Jasper is best when he is settled into a routine, and he loves going out on long walks. We are looking for a home for Jasper where there is someone around most of the day, as he needs help with his house training. He is very affectionate once he gets to know you. Jasper is on a diet at the moment as he is carrying a little too much weight. He is fine around chickens, ducks and sheep. Jasper has not encountered cats in his previous home. He has lots of energy so he will need plenty of exercise.

Re-homing Criteria

Jasper will need help with his housetraining as he has been used to living in outdoor kennel. He will also need someone who can help him get back into shape again.

Tommy is about 9 years old and has been a much loved pet for a number of years. Tommy is living in a foster home and has previously lived with a young child, whom he got along great with.

Tommy can be a little wary of other dogs when first meeting them but once he's used to them he's a friend for life and will happily let them share his bed. Tommy walks well on the lead and is fine to be left for short periods.
