Supporters of Stray and Abandoned Dogs

Registered Charity No. 1128800. - So SAD


“Providing care, treatment, rehabilitation and re-homing of abandoned, stray and homeless dogs in Darlington”

We try to help prevent strays by taking dogs from owners who can no longer cope, often through changes in circumstances.

This Charity helps Stray Action Dogs Deerness Kennels pay for vet fees for the stray and abandoned dogs left here at the kennels, vaccine, flea treatment etc. The charity has no paid staff - all money collected by the Charity goes to help the dogs.

Are you interested in helping the stray and abandoned dogs from the Darlington area?
Could you help with fund raising?
Please call 0191 3780439 and speak to Linda or call over to the kennels for a chat.

We are sure these dogs would appreciate your support!

Homeless through no fault of their own, these dogs are desperate for a new, loving home. See our Galllery for details of dogs currently with us.


 If you are unable to offer a permanent home to a dog for any reason, why not consider short term or long term fostering?


We would like to invite your pets to spend their holiday with us. All our rooms have comfy beds, dry vet bed and fresh water with outside runs.
