Update on Stray Aid and Covid-19

We are truly living in unique and very challenging times, in the UK and across the globe. The Covid-19 pandemic has an impact on everyone.

We wanted to offer you an update from Stray Aid so that you are aware of our position at this difficult time.

Please remember Stray Aid is still here to help stray and abandoned dogs throughout the north-east of England.

We are continuously reviewing the guidance from government as it is issued. We have had to take some really difficult decisions based on a desire to protect the health, wellbeing and safety of staff, volunteers and visitors to the rescue centre. The decisions we have made are in line with the government’s advice that people should reduce unnecessary social contact.

We are working to ensure that stray dogs can still be brought to a place of safety until they can hopefully be reunited with their owners, but otherwise rehomed. With this in mind, our rescue and rehoming centre is currently closed to all walk-in visitors. We have an appointment system for people wishing to access our services. Please ring 0300 9994247 to make an appointment or for further information.

This ensures that our staff can focus on regular deep cleans and ensuring that the needs of our animals are met, while protecting the health and welfare of staff, volunteers and visitors to the centre.

Thank you for you for your understanding
