Keeping Scotties and their owners together

The Scottish Terrier Emergency Care Scheme (STECS) is the UK’s premier breed rescue charity. Our many volunteers are dedicated to helping Scotties in need and, where necessary, finding them new forever homes. We also provide emotional and financial support for Scotties needing treatment, so that they and their owners can stay together.

Our patron

Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson MBE is the inspirational patron for the STECS. Scotties Archie and Rory helped his family through Ben’s traumatic recovery period after he was horrifically injured following an explosion in Afghanistan when he was only 22 years old.

Our annual membership helps us to find new homes for Scotties in need. You will receive two newsletters each year and an invite to one of our Garden Party events where you get to meet other members and Scotties.


STECS relies on funding from members, donations and fundraising. £2 per month can pay to have a Scottie dog immunised against illness.
