Inspired by a dogs’ sensory garden at a national flower show SARA thought it would be a brilliant idea and be ideal for the dogs at our sanctuary.
A derelict piece of land has been transformed into a garden full of exciting zones for the dogs to roam freely, under supervision.
A central pebble path runs through a free flowing water spray and a grasses garden provides soft textures. There is a rockery, also a log area and an arbour providing shade for resting or grooming. Raised beds house a profusion of relaxing aromas with herbs to calm animals.
It is an exciting addition to the Sanctuary facilities and has been funded by friends and supporters of SARA.

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.
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.
