We’ve scheduled another Paint Your Pet Event with Wine & Design in Charlotte NC.  The fee is $60.00 with proceeds going to Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast.  You send them a picture of your pet & they transfer it to canvas for you to paint.  You don’t have to be a painter as the W&D staff are very helpful & will guide you through each step.  We’ve participated in several of these events and always have so much fun.  This will be our first for 2015.  What a great way to get a painting of your pet & by your own hand.  All are welcome so sign up as soon as possible as seating is very limited & bring a friend!

Follow the link to reserve your spot & we hope to see you there!

Happy New Year dear friends of Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast.  We are going to start an auction to benefit the many Scotties that will need our help in 2015.

As most of you know 2014 was a year of many Scotties with enormous vet bills.  We here at STRSE count on generous supporters like you to assist us in the vet care of these less fortunate little ones.  We will post specific details on several of the Scotties that now have a wonderful and pampered life because they were rescued from sometimes horrible situations and sometimes situations where the family just could not keep the dog any longer.  The adoption fee rarely equals or even comes close to the vet bills for many of the dogs we have cared for.

The auction will be from January 9 through January 11.  You may start posting items on January 1.

Thank you for all the support that you have given us in the past. And thank you for the supporting this auction.  Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions:

MaryLou Kuklentz, 704 597 5647,

We greatly appreciate all you do to assist us in saving the lives of these Scotties.

Isabelle Grace’s Mom Carrie was told to pick a number between 2101 and 2276.  Naturally she picked her lucky number of 2222!

Congratulations to JANET HERRICK who purchased 6 tickets to help.

We sold a total of 176 tickets & we thank each & every one of you for your help & continued support of this wonderful cause we call STRSE!



The 2015 STRSE Calendars are shipping & the reviews are RAVE – the best calendar so far.  Everyone loves the alumni & action page. And cover beautiful! The pages have many of our 2013/2014 rescues on the month pages.

Remember that by purchasing a calendar you are helping us do the work of rescuing Scotties in need that come to us and we have had so many this year with high medical expenses. Yes we do ask an adoption fee for each dog but it usually does not cover the vet expenses for even the dogs that come to us without any major vet issues.

IN THE PAST THESE CALENDARS HAVE SOLD OUT so we ordered extra this year. Get your order to us as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on the 2015 STRSE Calendar. Calendars are the same price as last year, $15.00 + $2.00 for shipping for 1.  2 to 4 calendars, add $3.00 shipping, 5 or more add $5.00 for shipping.  Send your name, address & check or money order made payable to STRSE to Susan Liguori at: SUSAN LIGUORI5618  BAYWATER DR  TAMPA FL 33615 Or you can use our convenient PayPal button – just remember to indicate in the instruction/comment section of PayPal that you are ordering 2015 calendars & how many As always Thank You for your generous support.  STRSE couldn’t do the work we do without your help. The Scotties thank you too. AROOO scottie calendar cover 2015

We are saddened

We are saddened to announce the following losses to our cause & to everyone who knew them:

The Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast volunteers are saddened to learn of the passing of one of our staunchest supporters, Beth Ealing of Sarasota, FL.

 Beth was the proprietor of Max’s Dog Bakery and shared her home and heart with two Scotties, Pippen and Mac Jagger.

 Our deepest sympathy is extended to Beth’s parents, brother, sister, extended family and friends. Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast thanks all who have made memorial contributions in her name.

 Please keep Beth’s family in your thoughts & prayers.

It is with heavy heart that STRSE has recently lost yet another of our valued volunteers & supporters, Debra Diana Basile of Jupiter, FL.

A very special Thank You to Cincinnati Scotty Friends

Dawn D, one of our volunteers  in FL, along with her pack & a friend got to make the trip to the annual Cincinnati Scotty Friends 2014 Collectors Show this year & by all accounts they had a great time representing STRSE.  We hope many more STRSE

We especially thank Cincinnati Scotty Friends for their generous donation of $311.00 to STRSE.  We appreciate your support of our rescue & will certainly put it to good use for the medical expenses of one of the little ones that comes in to us.  Thank you for naming STRSE to receive the proceeds from the special fund raiser for Scotty Rescues this year.  And Thank You Linda Sprinkle for naming STRSE as your rescue of choice to receive these funds.

Happy Tail Bunny Rebecca

Meet Bunny Rebecca! Her new parents Howard and Karen contacted us in Florida about a year ago after loosing their precious Scottie Ann. They weren’t sure if they were ready so we put their application on hold for awhile.
Well along came beautiful Bunny that needed a new home where their were no other dogs. She was surrendered by her owner due to health reasons and had very little socialization for most of her life. She needed a new devoted family that could introduce her to a big wide world and Howard and Karen were just the ticket. They saw her pictures and heard her story and it was the perfect match at the perfect time.
She has settled in just fine as you can see from her happy expression and is enjoying walks around the neighborhood, playing with toys and lots of love. Many thanks to Dawn for reaching out to her new potential family,Brenda and her family for fostering and Pam for doing the home visit at short notice in order to make this happen so quickly for Bunny Rebecca and her new furever family.

Karlee Sue’s got a new home!

Karlee SUe

Karlee Sue is one of our most recent rescues. She has been adopted by Kay and spends her days learning rally obedience and barn hunt and playing with her Scottie sister and two Airedale sisters. She is learning to be the dog she was meant to be and having a wonderful time. Kay said she loves learning and playing. Another wonderful success story! Karlee Sue is a very lucky little dog to be with Kay and her family. We are so thrilled that Karlee Sue is so loved and cherished. And Karlee Sue is showing how much she appreciates the love and attention she is receiving. She is a busy and happy little girl.
