Start off your New Year with a dip in the sea at Saltburn to help all the animals at SARA. Sponsor forms and details are below.
We have recently been granted planning permission to build four new, high quality kennels at our animal sanctuary. The ground work has now started and this is what they will look like when they are finished.
In addition to this, our existing eight kennels will have to be closed in the near future for major refurbishment. Our biggest problem is that our kennels often flood due to poor drainage. We are planning to resolve this with a total refurbishment of these kennels to a high standard and it is hoped this work will start in the spring.
The expected cost of all the planned worked will be in excess of £120,000!!!!!
We are a small animal charity and our overheads are kept to an absolute minimum. Despite this, we are constantly striving to improve our facilities so we can rescue more neglected and mistreated animals, and continue to build on our excellent reputation. We now have this opportunity to extend and improve our current facilities.
How can you help?
We have opened a Charity Choice account on our web site and all donations will be recorded. To donate click on here to go to the page. The four new kennels are costing £15,000 each. If a single donation is made for this amount either by an individual or a business, the kennel can be sponsored by that person or that of a loving pet. However, donations large and small will be massively appreciated.Regular updates and photos will be on our website and our Facebook page.
If you would like further information about this exciting project, please contact the farm and talk to a member of staff, or if possible visit our sanctuary and we shall be happy to show you round.

Although Sam’s progress has been good aided by Catherine Marshall, physiotherapist and Helen Gosling at Butterwick Hydrotherapy there was still a problem as his leg had rotated and he was walking on the side of his foot.
After consultation he was referred to an orthopaedic specialist and an operation was carried out on Wednesday 25th January. He now has to have 6 weeks cage rest (he doesn’t agree and lets everyone know it, his lung power is phenomenal). He has a post operative check up on Monday.
