IF YOU BREED PLEASE RESCUE!
Consider selling your pet puppies on S/N contracts and limited registrations. Keep in touch with your puppy owners. Make sure they understand that you will take back any Stafford you have bred, for any reason, at any time in that dogs life! Microchip and register that chip before sending dogs home! Put current information on the chip registration and keep it current!
Think RESCUE – consider fostering or helping do breed identification!
Donations are desperately needed for the care of the dogs in rescue – Did you know that all purchases from The Shops at TSK are considered a DONATION! This means they can be considered donations on your tax forms since The Stafford Knot, Inc. is a non profit 501(c )(3).
Please give fostering a try! If you have the room – and it doesnt take much for a Stafford in need – try it. We can help you. There is a great support system for people who foster. Fostering, pulling a dog on death row and taking them home with you – is so worthwhile. Some take a long time to come out of their shell, trust, assimilate….and others fit right in. Staffords are so trusting and appreciative. It is wonderful when the right home steps forward and accepts the dog into their own home. Sometimes it is bittersweet to let them go – but always heartwarming. And you have made another person so happy – remember the day you brought home YOUR first Stafford? That is the gift you just gave someone else. Please help rescue.
