Roxie came to S.A.R.A. as an 11wk old puppy with a severe skin condition. Roxie was far too small for the kennels and needed very close care with regular baths, drops and vet visits. Roxie spent the next few months with her dedicated team of foster carers who kept up with all of her medical needs. One of our foster carers and their family fell in love with Roxie and decided to adopt her which was fantastic news! Roxies treatment is ongoing to this day.
The Riddler came to S.A.R.A. in 2016. The Riddler has neurological issues and could not cope with life in the cattery. She is now in a lovely foster home where she lives with two other cats 🙂
Rags came to S.A.R.A. at the end of 2017. He was in a terrible state. Rags had a whole host of ailments that needed urgent medical care. He had a chronic skin condition and a chronic ear infection with green puss oozing out of his ears. His skin was red raw with little fur. Rags is one of the worst cases we have seen here at S.A.R.A. Now, Rags is in a foster home with one of our volunteers who has dedicated so much time to his medical needs. Including, endless visits to the vets, baths, ointments, drops and most importantly, TLC! Rags has taken everything in his stride and does not have a bad bone in his body 🙂
Boris is an incredibly cute 12yr old staffy who came to S.A.R.A. as a stray. Boris loves his strolls, cuddles, naps and carrying his tennis ball around his garden 🙂 Boris is virtually blind. Boris isn’t remotely fazed by this and he quickly adapted to his surroundings in his lovely new home 🙂
Rosie arrived at Saltburn Animal Rescue Association at the end of November 2015 as a stray at only five years old. At first glance, Rosie was absolutely skeletal and her coat was in poor condition. Once we had had a look at her, it was obvious that she was extremely dehydrated and her gums were white! We rushed her to the vets where she immediately drank five bowls of water and was placed on a drip. She was in such poor condition that she had become diabetic! She has been as good as gold the entire time. The vets are still confident she will go in to remission from her diabetes. Rosie has insulin injections after her meals which are 12hrs apart. She will actually finish her dinner and come over for her injection! In the last 13 months, I have got to know Rosie so well and to see how far she has come is amazing. Even more amazing is how she has taken it all in her stride. Rosie enjoys her walks with the other dogs and playing with squeaky toys but her favourite thing, I think, is having her tummy tickled. She will lie down on the grass for a tickle and I am sure she would lay there for hours if she could. There isn’t a single day where Rosie doesn’t make me smile. She is a truly spectacular dog and really deserves an amazing home of her own.
Rolo is a lovely staffy cross who came to S.A.R.A. following a change in his owners circumstances. On arrival, he had a chronic ear infection and suffered with his skin. Having spent almost a year in kennels, Rolo finally found the perfect home!! Rolo still has ongoing issues with his skin and ears which are controlled with medication.
