SOS - Save our Staffies

April 2017

We currently have a number of gorgeous staffies and staffie crosses that need new homes and they are all fabulous dogs - very sociable and very endearing. Our most senior chap is Keeneye who has been with us for over 2 years - he desperately needs a forever home to settle into in his twilight years. Just recently we have welcomed 5 young staffies - Poppy who is around 2-3, Kacie who is 2, Wilson who is 3-4, Titch who is a liovely little chap and Mike who is a typical big lad staffie. These are all lovely dogs and they all deserve special homes. If you can help, please call Bob on 01947 810787 - Thank you


Coates Fundraising Weekend 27/06/2015

Coast 2 Coast and Total Warrior
Tom and Claire Coates raised funds for Whitby and Scarborough Dog rescue.

We are very grateful to Claire and Tom Coates for raising money on behalf of Whitby & Scarborough Dog Rescue and thank them for facing these gruelling challenges……..


Tom did the coast to coast in a day. A 150 mile road ride from the mountainous Western Lake District, through the Yorkshire Dales, across the flat Vale of York and finally the Northern Valleys of the North York Moors, finishing by the sea in Whitby with over 4500 metres (11400 ft) of climbing.


Claire did the Total Warrior course which is 12k in distance but with obstacles including the Human BBQ, The Shocker, The Plunge, You Tube, Worm Muncher and Hang Tough (to name a few).

Unfortunately we are not legally allowed to take in stray dogs off the street.
If you find a stray dog you should...

  • Firstly, check if it has any identification which may allow you to contact the owner to return it.
  • If not, walk around the neighbourhood asking if anyone recognises the dog and may know where it comes from.
  • If you are unable to find the owner you should contact the Scarborough council dog warden during normal office hours (8.30-5.00, Mon-Fri) on 01723 232535 or outside office hours on 01723 351558.

Dogs are taken in from the Dog Wardens throughout the area when

they are due to be destroyed. We also take dogs from private homes.

  • We operate a non - destruction policy
  • We are run purely by volunteers
  • This year we expect to rehome more than 150 dogs

We cover the Whitby-Scarborough-Bridlington-Pickering-Malton area.

Contact Information:

If you are interested in adopting a dog or would like more details about any of the dogs currently available for rehoming please contact Christine at Animal Crackers on 01947 810787
