Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation is a non-profit organization facilitating the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of bull terrier dogs countrywide, and is based in Vereeniging, Gauteng.
After many years serving animals in need through working for the SPCA in Vereeniging, Dania Skone realized the great need South African bull terriers were in. Often misunderstood, mostly neglected or just abandoned, many were put to death due to their very nature and because of their breed.
Bull Terriers have been vilified through years of poor understanding of the breed requirements and need for the stimulation, play and to be part of a family unit. The Northern Free State Bull Terrier Club recognized Dania’s work in the rehabilitation field with bull terriers and invited her to head up Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue through her unrelenting efforts to help bull terriers in need and the organization was founded in 2012. During 2015, the need to become a separate entity became evident, and thus Adorabull is now a stand-alone NPO.
Our mission is to rescue bull terrier dogs from neglectful circumstances, taking in strays in need of safe harbor, veterinary care and rehoming them to suitable, experienced homes. We endeavor to network dogs in kill shelters through social media to attempt to help as many dogs as possible, even when not in our care. Adorabull also assists bull terrier owners who need to rehome their dogs to do this in a safe and responsible way.
Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation maintains a vision of ending euthanasia of adoptable dogs of the bull terrier breed through increasing public awareness, providing the relevant information and training and facilitating as many families during adoption as possible.
We rely solely on the generosity and goodwill of our volunteers and members of the public, who are as passionate about the bull terrier breed as we who rescue them and fight for their right to life, and to give them the second chance they deserve at a happy family life.
All dogs in our care are vaccinated, micro chipped and sterilized prior to rehoming and we do not condone breeding and selling of any dogs for profit. In a world where there are already many animals in need, and being euthanized due to lack of good homes etc., breeding of more unwanted litters is a matter Adorabull is very serious about fighting against.
