“Today I met a little cheeky girl, Ember. Lots of kisses and cuddles were had but seriously - Stray Aid do so much for the lil lost and lonely pooches of this world. So, if you can spare a pound or know someone who can give a lil furball a home please contact Stray Aid! ”

“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 A photo of little Chico on his first holiday to Wales looking out over the view from a Castle tower. How he has gone up in the world.”

“I rehomed my lurcher Spook from here and I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful people who volunteer here. They are extremely dedicated, hugely helpful and really care about the dogs that come into them. They make the whole process so easy and I am extremely grateful to all of them. I would definitely rehome another dog from them and recommend them to anyone.”

“I re homed a little lurcher called tammy from here and she's the best dog ever, the people are lovely and went out of their way to help the dogs find homes. You could really see how much they cared. It was lovely to see and Id recommend them to everyone looking for a dog”

“ I absolutely love Stray Aid. I saw Jake E. on your website and even though he was 11 years old at the time I fell in love with him. I did adopt him and was so pleased at how quickly he settled in. I had 2 other dogs at the time who were 12 and 13 years old so, Jake E was the youngster. He loved his toys. I doubt he had ever seen toys or knew how to play so for the next 5 years he played every single day and would always make me smile...and usually laugh. He ended up having so many health issues, including seizures, but the vets took wonderful care of him for me.He was always the bright spot in my day...right along with my other two. On May 6, 2015 Jake E's health rapidly declined and by 6 AM he had crossed over that rainbow bridge where I know angels are being constantly entertained by him and love him as much as I do. I know there will come a time when I am reunited with Jake E as well as all my other much loved pets and I find so much comfort knowing that. Thank you so much Stray Aid for all your hard work. We who have adopted furbabies from you appreciate all you do!!”

“Great great charity helping dogs. We got Thor our bullmastiff fron them and he's a wonderfull family member. Rehome a dog instead of getting a pup and Strayaid is the perfect place to adopt your new family member”

Alan Dobson, .

“I have not heard about Stray Aid until very recently. Since then I have met various people there and they deserve recognition for the job they do. All amazing, friendly and helpful. (Special thanks to Diane). The animals they look after deserve the best out of life and with the help of Stray Aid their chances to achieve that are just that little bit better.”

Silvia Gaberell, .

“Hi I visited Stray Aid last week, I met some of the dedicated staff and volunteers and was able to view the dogs in the kennels too They were all well looked after, well fed, Clean kennels, Vet treatment if required, and walked 2-3 times a day, and staff fully dedicated to finding them the right homes I donated food treats dog wear and handed in my collection tin So if you are looking for a new dog please view or visit Stray Aid in coxhoe and give one of these dogs a new caring home Thank you”
