Celebration All Round for S.A.R.A.
Smiles form everyone
Shouts of hooray
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.
S.A.R.A dogs “the future spells luxury for you”
This is Ceasar. He is a 1 year old Perro de Presa Canario also known as a Canary Mastiff. Ceasar first came into S.A.R.A after he was found as a stray at only 4 months old. It was clear to see that he hadn’t been socialised as he was scared of other dogs and strangers until he got to know them. After only a month or two a very experienced lady who had owned and worked with big dogs for a long time came forward to offer him a home. We thought it was great for him as she already had another dog and after a couple of meetings they got on fantastic. After only being in a home for 7 months he returned to S.A.R.A as his owner could no long look after him due to her becoming pregnant, she felt that she could no longer manage two large dogs. Unfortunately when Ceasar came back the lady who adopted him had been bitten on the hand after he became scared of her nephew that had come to visit. Ceasar had jumped on the sofa next to his owner for reassurance but his owner tried to pull him off with his collar and he turned his head round and caught her on the hand. The Staff at S.A.R.A were understandably wary at first but soon realised that he was just still a scared puppy as he would growl at anything when he was out on a walk, like a carrier bag stuck in a tree or just something strange in the distance. Over the last couple of months whilst he has been at the centre Ceasar has come on leaps and bounds, his confidence has grown as his training has progressed. We find that he walks very well on a halti and he is regularly walked with dogs of all sizes and breeds. He is a lovely dog who enjoys running around and playing with his toys as well as having a cuddle. He has became a fond favourite with the staff and volunteers. We are looking for a very experienced large dog breed owner who is willing to carry on Ceasar`s training preferably with no children or other pets.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the centre.
Can you offer this amazing dog a forever home where he can reach his full potential?
Please come and celebrate with us on May 30th at 14:30 (2:30pm) at Foxrush Farm.
