Riding on the crest of a wave!
On Wednesday 30th May 2018 “Support Adoption For Pets” presented the charity with a huge cheque of £120,000, Wow!
S.A.R.A had approached Support Adoption For Pets earlier in the year regarding a grant for a specific project.This entailed revamping and renovating our old kennel block that can house 8 dogs.Certainly a mammoth task including new drainage system,crucial structural work as well underfloor heating,energy-efficient headlamps and contemporary interiors that would ensure a much improved accommodation for the canine residents.
Support Adoption For Pets visited the farm to discuss plans and were most impressed with the ethos,ambiance of the place,staff professionalism and dedication along with the facilities already in place.In other words they fell in love with S.A.R.A!
Consequently their Trustees agreed to donate not just a part of the building costs but the entire sum.Representatives of the organisation including a film crew attended the celebration day, filming and interviewing all aspects and supporters of the animal sanctuary.
His Worship the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland and the Mayoress made a surprise visit as well as Pets @ Home and Sainsburys staff both are avid supporters of S.A.R.A. Sainsburys donated lots of delicious foods and Renaissance patisserie made a lovely cake for the special occasion.
Food which was plentiful,BBQ buzzed,JMS ukulele band played so all was singing and dancing. When the cheque was physically handed over screams of delight were heard and an outpouring of gratitude and amazement followed.
Work will start this summer with completion in the autumn.Support Adopting for Pets will be kept in the loop with regular photographs and progression reports.
Watch out for the Grand Opening date of both the new kennel build and newly refurbished main block.
Thank you `Support Adoption for Pet’ for this brilliant uplift and to all the supporters of our amazing charity.

Support Adoption For Pets (Pets At Home) are going to present S.A.R.A with a
huge grant towards the cost of the 8 original kennels which are in need of major
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.
