We are Saints Sled Dog Rescue, a non-profitable charity dedicated to rescuing and re-homing Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute breeds.
We were founded by Heather Saville in January 2013 and have saved over 740 dogs, and 1 cat, since then!

'Halos not Egos'
We are SSDR, a nationwide charity run by experienced volunteers who aim to help as many unwanted, neglected or stray Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes through the process of fostering and re-homing, or simply by supporting their owners with help and advice.
Along side this, we also arrange and carry out educational visits across the country, including working and handling demonstrations.
We work alongside other rescue organisations, dog pounds and dog wardens to help ensure that all dogs are re-homed in the best possible environment which suits the dogs needs.
At present, many of these dogs have been purchased or bred by people who have little understanding of the needs or these wonderful breeds. Whilst some of the dogs who come into our care do so for genuine reasons, the majority come from puppy farms, back yard breeders and uninformed owners who lack knowledge BEFORE purchasing on of these dogs. Through our educational visits and working demonstrations we hope to improve the future for these dogs, whilst we try to help the ones who need us now through re-homing and one-to-one support.
All of our coordinators are experienced in the sled dog breeds, having themselves fosters and/or adopted Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes. Our volunteers are all passionate about the breeds and the work that we do. At SSDR, we will take any dog that needs us, regardless of its age or health.
Any donations to take a dog into our care are voluntary and go towards medical bills, boosters or food for the dogs. We are also happy to offer our services in assessing these breeds for other rescue organisations that may not have a great understanding of their specialist needs.
We also provide training and 24 hour support for our volunteers as well as lifelong back up and support for ALL the dogs we re-home.
