Terry is a lovely 8 year old cat who came into us as a stray. He is very affectionate and a vocal little fella who lets you know if you ignore him. Terry is looking for a home with an experienced cat owner and where he would be an only pet. Terry has to be a house cat as he tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus. This condition can be tolerated well by cats and Terry should have a happy and full life. A Pension plan would be offered when Terry is re-homed.

Snowy is a 10 year old female who came into our care after her owner sadly passed away. She is a lovely girl who is looking for a nice quiet home with no other cats so she can have all the attention she deserves.

Tiger is a tabby male aged 18mth who came into our care after his owner was too ill to care for him anymore. He is a lovely, friendly cat who enjoys to play and have a good fuss and is always the first to meet you at the front of his cage. Tiger is looking for a home as an indoor/outdoor cat. He could possibly live with other cats and children aged 10 .

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.
