Supporters of Sad Dogs

SoSAD was registered by the Charities Commission on 1st April 2008, and has been active in fund raising and volunteer activities since that date.

​SoSAD has raised funds, which has allowed us to provide financial assistance to Deerness Kennels, in Langley Moor, Durham, enabling us to make a major contribution to the vet bills and associated health care costs relating to the stray and abandoned dogs. As a charity we have no paid staff – all money collected by the charity goes to help the dogs.

​SoSAD promotes a non destruction policy within County Durham. Your donations help SoSAD provide quality care, rehabilitation and re-homing of abandoned and homeless dogs. Your donation will really make a difference to those dogs that are in need the most.

​SoSad (Supporters of Sad Dogs) is a sister website with but we are both part of the same charity. Strayaction is run by Deerness Kennels and SoSad is run by the charity directly. We both have the same aim – to find these wonderful dogs their forever home and to raise money to support the dogs until they do.
