Saving Strays Animal Rescue (SSAR) gained official charity status in October 2022 and now has the Registered Charity Number 1200632.
By continuing to fulfil its mission to help ‘every pet finds their fur-ever home’ the small but dedicated team has been helping hundreds of animals since SSAR was established in 2019 by Hayley Egan, charity trustee.
The charity says it is ecstatic to have obtained registered charity status and feels that this is a reflection of the hard work of the team of volunteers, and the ambition of Hayley, who all want to see the charity continue to thrive to help animals in need of rehabilitation and rehoming.
Hayley said: “The team and I have been working incredibly hard over the past four years to gain a registered charity status. It’s important to us as it has helped SSAR gain legitimacy and now our hard work is recognised throughout the community; this status helps increase our exposure and strengthens our voice as a charity.”
The charity continues to emphasise their aim to rescue strays and unwanted animals in Bolton and the surrounding areas; whilst never allowing a healthy animal to be euthanised.
With the growing help of volunteers and fosterers, all animals are accommodated in loving homes and receive the necessary veterinary treatment required.
Jorden Parton, marketing manager at Saving Strays Animal Rescue added: “Saving Strays Animal Rescue has been growing exponentially as a team of volunteers as well as rescuing more animals in need. Although this growth is great, it has increased a need for more volunteers to keep up with the demand of the services we provide. At SSAR, we are very passionate about rescuing animals in need and supporting them. We are grateful for adopters/fosterers and would love to increase our network of volunteers to continue to provide care and support for all the animals in our rescue.”
