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.

SARA held it’s New Year’s Day Dip, despite blustery showers a number of very brave dippers participated. On the day £195 was raised with more sponsorship money to come in. Thanks to all who participated and those who supported their efforts.
This year both Sainsbury’s Saltburn and Sainsbury’s Marske voted Saltburn Animal Rescue Association as their charity of the year. They have not only placed buckets at all the checkouts to collect donations but invited SARA to hold events in their stores. To date these 15 events have raised just short of £1800.
The staff at Sainsbury’s, Saltburn gave SARA a hamper of treats for the volunteers who would be working over Christmas, it was much appreciated.
On Sunday 18th December SARA opened its replacement dog lounge, the last one in a portakabin having become unsafe. Dogs (and volunteers) get a chance to chill out in quiet surroundings. This helps with assessment and introducing dogs to a homelike setting.
SARA held its annual Christmas Fayre on Saturday 10th December. There were a large number of stalls providing a variety of goods and games offering chances to win. It was well attended and we raised a total of£1071.25. Thank you to all who attended and helped.
Carols at Foxrush
A lovely afternoon was spent at SARA’s Carols at Foxrush with a large number of dogs bringing their owners for a sing song (and joining in). Refreshments were available including mulled wine. It rounded off another successful year of events. Thank you to all our supporters and helpers.
