Welcome To Save Our Strays
Dogs are man's best friend, their love is unconditional so before buying a dog or puppy please consider adopting a rescue dog that needs a new home. On our website you will find a wide variety of dogs and puppies that need a good loving home.
We are small registered charity in the North East of England who depend completely on public donations to rescue unwanted dogs, mainly from the dog pounds. We are all volunteers who are passionate about rescue dogs and every penny raised goes towards their care.
Dogs like me need a new home

Urgent Permanent Foster Home Needed - Bailey
PERMANENT FOSTER HOME NEEDED
Bailey is now in temporary foster as he was not doing well in kennels but is still looking for his forever home. SOS will rehome him on a permanent foster basis and will pick up any future vets bills for him.
Bailey is a lovely 9 year old Patterdale terrier who came to us from the local pound where he had been taken as a stray. Bailey is currently in foster with 2 other dogs and loves to play and get out for walks (after which he usually has a grandad nap). He responds to basic commands and his lead training is improving but needs someone who could continue working with him whilst outside the home. Bailey is great with children and would happily snuggle for hours, he is not destructful and loves travelling in the car.
If you would like some more information or to come and meet Bailey, please telephone Margaret on 01642 488667 or Lynn on 07952 334379 for more information or to arrange an appointment to meet him.

Now I am loved.
A year ago now
I was all skin and bone,
I was lost and forgotten
on the streets all alone.
