Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation’s mission is to rescue Bull Terriers from neglectful circumstances, taking in strays in need of safe harbour, providing the necessary veterinary care and re-homing them to suitable, experienced homes. We endeavour to network dogs in kill shelters through social media, to attempt to help as many dogs as possible, even when not in our care. Adora-Bull also assist Bull Terrier owners, who need to re-home their dogs, 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, training and facilitating as many families during the adoption process as possible.
We do not condone breeding or the selling of any dogs for profit. In a world where there is already many animals in need, and that are being euthanized due to lack of good homes etc., the breeding of more unwanted litters is a matter Adora-Bull is very serious about fighting against.
Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation relies 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 are. They play a huge role in helping us rescue them, fight for their right to live and trying to give them a second chance at a happy family life, which they all deserve.
When you’ve looked in the eyes of a dumped, abandoned or abused animal and all that you have wanted to do is erase all their hurt and pain, while at the same time wanting to hurt the human responsible for causing it, you might be an animal rescuer.
Dania Skone, Founder of Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation
Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation is a non-profit organisation (NPO), based in Gauteng, South Africa, which facilitates the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of Bull Terrier dogs countrywide.
After many years of serving animals in need through working for the SPCA in Vereeniging, Dania Skone realised the dire position South African Bull Terriers were in. Bull Terriers have been vilified through the misconception of the breed’s requirements, their need for stimulation, play and to be part of a family unit. Often misunderstood, mostly neglected or just abandoned, many were put to death due to their very nature and because of their breed.
The Northern Free State Bull Terrier Club recognised Dania Skone’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, the organization was founded in 2012. During 2015, the necessity to become a separate entity became evident, and thus Adora-Bull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation is now a stand-alone NPO.
Dania Skone is a qualified behaviourist, with a diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviour from the Ethology Academy. She is also an associate member of ABC of SA (Animal Behaviour Consultants of South Africa).
