Welcome to the Rescue Site of The Scottish Terrier Club of Greater NY



The Scottish Terrier Club of Greater New York, Inc., aka "STCGNY," is a nonprofit organization made up of people who live in New York, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania, who admire, love, own and care for Scottish Terriers. 

Our members engage in many activities with their Scotties, ranging from couch snoozing to garden digging, visiting hospitals and senior facilities with comfort dogs, competing in Scottie dog showing, obedience, rally, barn hunt, earth trial events.

STCGNY members are active advocates for Scottish Terriers, and the club holds dog health, safety, management, grooming, training information and social events throughout the year. We also operate a Scottie rescue, with more than 25 years of success stories to tell.

If you haven't ever thought about joining a club of Scottie enthusiasts, we'd love to have you join us now! Use this link.

If you want to adopt or re-home a Scottie, you're in the right place.


STCGNY is proud to offer relief to dogs who are Scottie Rescues.

What is a Scottie Rescue? A Scottie Rescue is a dog who has been previously owned, but whose owner can no longer keep him or her.

Dogs are are brought to us for a variety of reasons and they come to us from many sources. Whatever their specific histories might be, these dogs are in need of a good home, quality care, and love.

If you need to re-home a Scottie, we hope you will trust us with your Scottie instead of bringing them to a shelter or giving them away to someone who may not have experience with the Scottie breed or temperament.

For immediate assistance for a Scottie in need of foster care or rescue, please use this link to contact us here or reach out to us at this Facebook page, with Facebook messenger.

If your heart has a place that only a Scottie can fill, one of STCGNY Scottie Rescues just might be the perfect Scottie companion for you!

We are eager to hear from people who wish to adopt and who can provide a loving home to a Scottie. Please use this link to learn about our process and to introduce yourself to us.
