It is the intention of the rescue to obtain care for any rescue Scottie prior to placement in an adoptive home.

  1. Veterinary examination and all inoculations will be administered.
  2. Any deficiencies in medical care will be identified before the Scottie is placed.
  3. STROF will ensure that all rescue Scotties are in good health at time of placement, when possible.
  4. Spaying or neutering of all Scotties prior to adoption is mandatory unless age or medical condition delay surgery. 
  5. Rescue Fund will pay medical expenses for care prior to placement.
  6. The rescue will provide full disclosure to the adoptive family of the Scottie’s known medical and behavioral history.

Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida (STROF) is a 501c3 non-profit all-volunteer rescue that is registered in the State of Florida as a charitable organization.  We are dedicated to the rescue and placement of homeless and displaced Scottish Terriers in Florida.

Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida is an independent, tax exempt all volunteer charitable organization with IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit status and registration in the State of Florida under the Solicitation of Contributions Act.


Placement is at the discretion of the STROF and will be based upon the best match for the Scottie, following STROF procedures, outlined on the Adopt page.  Due to advanced age or serious health issues, some dogs may be considered "unadoptable".  For them, we provide "furever" foster/hospice care.  (We do not adopt our rescue Scotties outside the state of Florida.)



Our mission includes rescuing all Scotties  that have been lost, abandoned, or voluntarily surrendered by their owner.  As soon as possible, a rescued Scottie is transferred to an approved foster home and the search for a permanent home begins.  We do not adopt our rescue Scotties outside the state of Florida.

We take full legal possession of the Scottie by obtaining a signed release for owner surrender or through placement partnerships of various shelters through partnerships with shelters and rescue groups across the state of Florida.  The Scottie is then transferred to one of our approved foster homes.
