Welcome to Stray Aid

Stray Aid is a registered charity, Charity No. 1117372, based in Coxhoe, Durham. Our mission is to rescue, re-unite or rehome the lost, abused, abandoned or unwanted dogs found on the streets in the North East of England. Without your support, we are unable to provide this vital lifeline and we will not succeed in giving these unfortunate dogs a new start in life.  Our aim is to provide practical help and information on stray, lost or abandoned dogs and cats across County Durham, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough. 

If you have lost or found a dog, please contact Stray Aid's Help Desk on 0300 9994247 between 8am and 9pm, seven days a week, except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. We close at 5pm on New Years Eve.

Stray Aid Kennels, Coxhoe, are closed to the public between 9pm and 9am.
