Welcome To Save Our Strays

Dogs are man's best friend, their love is unconditional so before buying a dog or puppy please consider adopting a rescue dog that needs a new home. On our website you will find a wide variety of dogs and puppies that need a good loving home.

We are small registered charity in the North East of England who depend completely on public donations to rescue unwanted dogs, mainly from the dog pounds. We are all volunteers who are passionate about rescue dogs and every penny raised goes towards their care.

Stokesley Charity Bike Ride - Sunday 13th May

Many thanks to Paul and Graeme Mackintosh for all their hard work in organising this charity bike ride, all the marshalls and others who helped out on the day and the cyclists who took part.

We really appreciate being chosen for this years charity and the amazing amount raised from entry fees and sponsorship will make a real difference for our small charity. We will update with the final total raised when all monies are in.

Update - Monies raised so far from this have already exceeded £3,000 we will post the final figure when all funds are in. We can’t thank Paul and Graeme enough for their efforts on behalf of our charity, this has made a real difference to us.

Morgan Update

Sadly Morgan recently went to Rainbow Bridge but knew love and affection right to the end, thanks to Margaret.

He was a big friendly unique boy who is sadly missed.

Thank you to everyone who donated towards his treatment and medications.

Meet and Greets

We are now doing Meet and Greets again at Old Park Farm Boarding kennels every Sunday from 11am til 12:30 weather permitting.

The address is Old Park Farm Boarding Kennels, Whitby Road, Guisborough, TS14 7DF. Click here to view on a map.

If the weather is bad please telephone Carol 01287 632910 or Lynn 07952 334379 to check that it is still going ahead.


We are only a small group of volunteers and are desperately seeking more help in all areas.

Our vets bills last year were £36,000 and with kennel bills too we need a minimum of £5,000 a month income to stay afloat. Can you help?

We need help in the following areas:
Charity shop Marske - volunteers needed mornings 10 til 1, afternoons 1 til 3
Dog walkers Wednesdays and Sundays, other days by arrangement.
Fundraisers - could YOU organise an event for us or help out at one of our events?

If you think you may be able to help or want to discuss further, please telephone Lynn 07952 334379, Lynne 01287 652086 or Alison 01642 279272.

Urgent - Donated Items Wanted for Tombolas

Now I am loved.

A year ago now
I was all skin and bone,
I was lost and forgotten
on the streets all alone.
