Stray Aid was founded in 2006 by John and Sue Bielby (Registered Charity №: 1117372), with the main aim of helping local councils reduce the number of stray dogs being destroyed. Stray Aid has evolved by necessity, and has grown from taking in 2 dogs a week to many hundreds of dogs a year. None of this would have been possible without the support of people like you.
Our mission is to rescue, reunite or re home the lost, abused, abandoned or unwanted dogs found on the streets in the North East of England, and to increase the public’s awareness of its responsibility towards animals in society.
Our vision is that stray and abandoned dogs across the North East of England will be cared for in loving homes for life. We aim to achieve this by being a key service provider and giving the best possible care to rescue animals in need. We seek to make a long-term difference to animal welfare and responsible dog ownership by setting standards across the region. We seek to work in partnership with those who share our vision.
We provide the best possible care and veterinary treatment for every dog that we look after. We aim to find the right home for every animal under our care. We continually strive to promote good animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. We actively engage with the community in all aspects of our work. We value teamwork and fully appreciate the support of our volunteers, staff, supporters and partners. We continually strive to make a long-term difference to animal welfare across the region.
