On Sunday 5th June SARA held their annual Strawberry and Chocolate Fayre at Foxrush Farm. There was a good attendance with everyone enjoying the strawberries and cream provided by Tesco. The event also included a display of flyball by Middlesbrough Dog Club, a parade of dogs for rehoming and those who have been rehomed and had come back to see us. It gives the staff and volunteers a boost to see their former charges so healthy and happy. Our thanks to everyone who supported the event by attending, volunteering and the staff for the great work they do on a daily basis. SARA raised £631.34.

On Sunday 22nd May SARA held its annual Sponsored Dog Walk. A number of canine friends brought their owners to enjoy the walks through Foxrush Community Forest some even completed both. Amongst our canine visitors there were a number who had been rehomed from SARA and it was great to see how happy and keen all our canine visitors were (also their owners). Altogether we raised £414 with more sponsorship yet to come in. Thanks to all who supported us by participating, helping and sponsoring.

In December a team from SARA helped Support Adoption for Pets in the Middlesbrough store with their Santa Paws campaign. This week we have collected a cheque for £954.88 from Pets At Home Middlesbrough which was half of the collection money. The other half went to Support Adoption for Pets to help out other rehoming centres.

This money will go towards the ‘Haven’ that we are building. We identified that we needed a room where we could put dogs that were recuperating from illness or operations or could not be put in with the general population because they are nervous.

As you will see the ‘Haven’ is nearly complete and we will be soon putting it to good use.

On 20th December we had a visit to Foxrush from Reeds Global.  3 people came to help under the help charities day scheme.  This is where companies give their employees a paid day where they can spend a day helping a charity of their choice.

The 2 ladies and one man had a discussion on what our charity does and our aims.  Met some of the volunteers and then walked dogs and cuddles cats.

They enjoyed themselves and helped the animals.
