THE SSDR TEAM

My name is Heather Saville, SSDR Founder and this is my team of Coordinators.

 

Together, we spend every possible day to help rescue and rehome sled dogs around the UK to find them their forever homes... 

 

I rely on volunteers like these amazing coordinators, along with our fosterers, fundraisers, transporters, assessors and donators to make what we do possible!

Get to know more about me and my team below.

Heather Saville

SSDR Founder

My name is Heather and I am the very person who created our Charity Saints Sled Dog Rescue. I founded Saints back in 2013 after I saved our tri-pawed mascot Athena that NO RESCUE would take in due to needing medical treatment. From that point on I vowed I would help Sled Dogs in need, NO MATTER WHAT!

 

I have owned Siberian Huskies for 15 years and Malamutes for 9 years and in my time working with rescue dogs I have fostered well over 600...

My magic number of dogs is currently 23, 20 Siberian Huskies, 1 Malamute and 2 Belgian Malinois.
