In 2016 STCTB raffled off a beautiful Scottie quilt to raise funds for the Scottish Terrier Bladder Cancer Screening Study at Purdue University.  (Purdue's Dr. Deborah Knapp has been researching transitional cell carcinoma (TCC)- bladder cancer- in dogs.  Unfortunately, Scottish Terriers are one of several breeds at high-risk for TCC.) 

The lovely Scottie quilt was hand-crafted and generously donated by

Miriam Hoy.  STCTB Board member Pam Lowe led the effort to sell tickets

for the quilt drawing.  

The results of the quilt raffle are now in!

  • The winning ticket was drawn at our STCTB Specialty Show in Orlando on      December 16th, 2016.  The lucky winner was Roberta Dickson of St. Petersburg, Florida.  Roberta is an active volunteer with Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida.           Congratulations, Roberta!
  • A total of 466 tickets were sold, netting $1.179.  STCTB rounded that up, sending $1,300 to Purdue University.

A huge THANK YOU to Miriam Hoy, Pam Lowe, and all the individuals

who generously purchased tickets for the drawing.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening with 27 Scottie-loving friends. at our annual dinner and awards event.  Scottie treasurers were claimed from the sales boutique, several members received awards for new championships earned in 2015, prizes were collected, and raffle tickets sold for a chance to win a beautiful hand-made Scottie quilt- to benefit canine bladder cancer research at Purdue University. Thank you to everyone who attended!  We enjoyed meeting everyone- and hope to see you again soon at another STCTB activity.

How tIme flies!

Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida (STROF) recently completed its first full year...
                               “Saving Scotties in the Sunshine State”!

As we reflect on that milestone, here are some STROF highlights through 2016:

  • Rescue of 24 Florida Scotties/Scottie mixes- and 1 Scottie's Westie companion. 

     (These rescue dogs ranged in age from 2-15 years.)

  • Of those 24 dogs:

                 20 were adopted

                   3 were placed in permanent foster or hospice care

                   1 was still being evaluated in foster care (December 2016)

  • Placements were facilitated for 6 additional Scotties.
  • A network of 60+ volunteers was developed state-wide.
  • STROF representatives made contact with every county animal shelter, ASPCA, and

        humane society organization in the state of Florida.

  • Several very successful fundraisers were conducted.

This would not have been possible without the help of the STROF Board,

volunteers, supporters and donors.  Thank you all so much!!!

We had a howling good time with 55 people, and 36 dogs attending our family event on a beautiful fall day at Hillsborough River State Park!  

Everyone enjoyed a scrumptious BBQ and pot-luck luncheon, Scottie-themed boutique sales, an introduction to barn hunt and agility, and the annual Scottie Halloween costume parade.
