Vet Diary - Interesting Facts

Those of you who follow our website regularly, will have been amazed at the sheer numbers of dogs passing through our kennels. But did you know that a total of 1,429 stray dogs were brought to Stray Aid in the 12 months between 1st April 2015 and 31st March 2016? Of those, 750 were returned to owner. The remaining 679 were transferred to our charity. Sadly 12 of these dogs were not considered rehomeable for reasons of health or temperament, and had to be put to sleep, but the remaining 667 were perfectly rehomeable, and our committment was to get them into loving forever homes as quickly as possible, to make room for the next batch! Networking with other charities to ensure the best possible homes for our dogs, we are delighted to say that we have never needed to put a dog to sleep simply due to lack of space, although we have had to "kennel-share" more dogs recently than ever before. 

Every dog that has been rehomed by Stray Aid has been neutered, microchipped (thanks to Dogs Trust for their support), vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. We have performed 184 dentals, removed 37 lumps, amputated 3 legs, repaired a ruptured cruciate, operated on 3 eyes, replaced a prolapsed lung lobe, the list goes on and on. It costs over £75,000 a year to run our Animal Welfare Centre. We have a whole new year coming up. Can you help us to keep on helping stray dogs in need?

Sad news

Published 07/04/2019
When dear little Poppy arrived at Stray Aid on 9th October 2018, we were so very worried about her. She was 15 years old, blind and deaf, and with a host of age-related problems, we knew that only a very special person would take her on.  Thankfully she touched the heart of George who volunteers at our Blackhall charity shop, he came down and met her, and that was it! They fell in...…read more
