 I just wanted to say today I met some of the girls and boy who help to change the lives of hundreds of dogs via Strayaid. They were collecting outside of Pets at home in Bishop Auckland. I had been chatting and joking for a while and fussing the lovely Staffy's when I saw it was Strayaid. My little boy Chico (was Hans) was looked after by Strayaid after I found him in my village emaciated and terrified wandering in the main road. 
I can honestly say I have never met such warm and genuine people and while Dogs have angels like you watching over them the world id a better place x

I've adopted a 12 month old German Shep (Zous) and a 12 month old Husky (Mia). Stray Aid take animals from the streets and help you make them forever family pets. Adopting a dog whatever age and background is not only rewarding for you but life changing for your new friend. This is not just an amazing charity. It's a group of people who volunteer because they care about animals. For you it's about bringing you a pet that's right for your lifestyle. Take advice and help from experienced guys and work with your dog to make an amazing and satisfying future for you and your new pet. Don't be afraid to ask for help. This charity will give you all the help you need. The Stray Aid community care and offer advice. This is by far the No.1 in the North East to find forever homes for previously unwanted gorgeous animals.

Thank you so much! Your help has ensured that the dogs in our care are not only safe and well looked after but also, during the colder months, they are kept warm and cozy too!
