Our Story

AOSR was started in 2009 by Mick Collins. His ethos is simple: "Its always about the dog". So many times over the years when we have struggled with decisions, as soon as we say those words.. it becomes crystal clear what to do for that particular dog.

We are small. Only less than a handful of volunteers to try and save as many Staffies as we can. We are not trainers or behaviorists, just a group of people devoted to the breed. We do our very best to manage our Rescue as professionally as we can, we do however have only 2 hands each. And the dogs always are our priority.

Please read our FAQ pinned post so you understand our terms for adoption. We are so happy and thankful that we have so many supporters now. To each and everyone of you... Never forget "Its always about the dog"
