About us

Join Us; foster, volunteer, donate

Saving Strays Animal Rescue is a local animal charity based in Bolton. We care for and re-home unwanted cats, dogs, horses, rabbits and would never allow a healthy animal to be put down. 

Many of our animals have not had the best start in life and are in need of support from their new families. To ensure they get this it is our policy to carry out home checks on all potential new homes prior to adoption. In this way we hope to provide the most suitable homes for our animals and give them the best possible chance of finding their new forever families.

Saving Strays Animal Rescue is staffed by a small team of volunteers, without whom we could not operate. If you would like to get involved with Saving Strays Animal Rescue and our work, why not make a donation, volunteer or foster. Any help you can offer will always be greatly appreciated by all of us here at Saving Strays Animal Rescue and of course by all of the animals in our care!

What we do?

We ensure that every animal is neutered, vaccinated, has flea and worm treatment, and is microchipped, along with any other medical needs that animal has.

All vet history is recorded at our chosen vets and will be passed onto the new owner upon adoption.

How do we do it?

We have a set adoption fee for cats and dogs that covers not only that animal’s care but goes towards the care of all our animals in rescue.

When you adopt from Saving Strays Animal Rescue we provide you with an Adoption Contract and all the vet history needed for your new pet.

Partner & friends

We are a part of the Home Checkers Network which now allows us to rehome all over the UK.

For every adoption there will be a thorough home check arranged to ensure that you and your new family member are right for each other!
