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?

HOT NEWS!!

Published 15/09/2019
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! After a particularly harsh winter in 2017 we realised that our old heating system was not going to make it through another cold winter so, for the last couple of years, we’ve been raising funds to cover the ...…read more
