Jenny is amazing, crazy, but amazing. We took a stray cat to her today, after we had made arrangements with her. She took the little girl in and now she will be safe from harm. I was in despair that I would ever find a rescue spot for her anywhere, but Jenny came to the rescue. I cannot thank her enough. She has saved the little cat from harm.... Definitely the cats saviour.read more

I was lucky enough to be able to foster a beautiful boy from SS.After a few weeks I just knew I couldn’t let Teddy go, so I adopted him.The process was easy, quick and smooth and I would 100% recommend to anyone ❤️
Recently adopted to great cats Cilla and Petula. Saving Strays are a wonderful group, helpful and knowledgable made the adoption go smoothly. My thanks to all the team.
I contacted Jenny from saving strays who gave me advice on a local stray who had been visiting me regularly. Tonight I managed to get him in my kitchen and the transport team were here within half an hour to save him 😺. What a lovely team. Thanks so much for your support and advice throughout. Amazing people.

Thank you so much to Saving Strays, they took my little Luna in whilst pregnant after she had gone missing! Received a message today and I went collected her, thank you so much for looking after her and giving her the love and attention she needs, you're amazing at what you do❤
I was looking to adopt a cat but knew I would be a little niche as I work from home as a childminder, so always young children around including my own. Saving Strays were brilliant, Hannah was really friendly and helpful and after my little Video interview, I adopted Hunter and was able to pick him up within a couple of days. He’s a gorgeous boy,... really friendly and has been great with the children. Would recommend saving strays, lovely people and the little extras free pet insurance for 5 weeks etc is great.read more
These have been really brilliant with helping a cat that had been left behind by his owners and had got really poorly while being on the streets , from start to finish I got so much support thank you once again He couldn’t be in better hands xx
We had an absolutely fantastic service from Saving Strays! We were looking for a young female cat however Saving Strays did not have a match for us at the time. As soon as a cat that matched our criteria came into their care they let us know and offered us a home check. The adoption process was quick and easy and we are now in love with our new... furry friend who has settled in so well! I couldn’t recommend them enough xxread more
excellent service. really helpful snd recommended
I was an apprehensive recruit to the Saving Strays Foster family when I joined in September. After a thorough, via remote, vetting procedure our first foster cat arrived with food, scratch post, toys, litter and litter tray. She was soon followed by our next, this time a semi feral mum cat with four feisty kittens. It was very rewarding spending... time with these everyday and slowly watching them become more confident, the first time they came to greet us, the first time we were allowed to touch them, then stroke them and finally when they were running round the house jumping on our knees and curling up for a snuggle! The rehoming section of Saving Strays works really efficiently and takes care to match the right cat/ kitten with their home. Our most confident kitten was homed as a sole cat, we then had another little girl kitten to go with our little girl so they could bond before they went to their together forever home that left us with two gorgeous boys who had got so confident with our dogs that they were rehomed with a dog. Our next foster arrived the evening before Christmas Eve, this time a puppy, who had been rescued alongside her siblings again she came with everything she needed food, bed, harness, bowls, lead. Saving Strays provide you with ongoing support whilst you foster, all vet appointments are arranged and all care is paid for, it is a really rewarding thing to do. You always feel the the top priority is the animals, their health and finding the a happy home.read more
I have been involved with saving strays for a year now and I am amazed everyday with the excellent care and work they do everyday they go above and beyond to rescue animals in need and find the perfect home for all the animals in rescue I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who as animal they cannot longer look after or for any strays... that are in need of help each and everyone of them who are involved with saving strays are so loyal caring and compassionate to the charity I adore them all and cannot thank them enough xxread more
Saving Strays is an amazing charity ran by incredible people! They have always been caring, patient and so helpful and are always happy to help in any situation as well as offer invaluable advice. I can’t recommend them enough!
Caring rescue who help animals in need 💓
Saving Strays were a pleasure to deal with when adopting our dog Sammie. Hayley was fantastic, she is helpful and knowledgeable which helped us settle Sammie into our home really well. I would highly recommend Saving Strays.
I'm lucky to be one of the fosterers at Saving Strays having looked after 3 cats over the past few months 🧡🐱 It has been such a rewarding experience watching the cats transform after being badly treated and finding new loving homes. The team are extremely supportive, providing full care, paying for vets appointments and giving advice for all the... animals. It's a wonderful community to be part of!read more
Great charity helping animals in need 👏🏻
I have been volunteering for saving strays for 8 months and in that time I have had 2 long term foster cats. The help advice and support I have had from the saving strays team has been second to none. The team work hard day and night for the animals to give them a better life and to find them a furever home.
Would 100% recommend Saving Strays. My own cats seem to bring strays home all the time and Hayley and her team are always on hand to help out. One of the strays was rescued, went to a foster home and eventually found his forever home. Saving Strays did an incredible job and gave a young cat the life he deserves!
I met Hayley last year through another rescue last year when I helped in a rescue of some tiny kittens trapped in a car, I then went on to help Hayley rescue a kitten that was found in the grounds of a factory. I had space to foster her and immediately fell in love. Hayley was there to support us throughout and was fantastic when we decided that... we couldn’t part with her and wanted to adopt her. Hayley was always there to answer any of my questions and I felt fully supported through the whole process. I can’t imagine what would have happened to her if Hayley hadn’t rescued her when she did. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Saving Strays to anyone. Keep up the amazing work guys 😺read more
I have fostered three adult cats and 5 kittens with Saving Strays and loved every single second of it. The girls that organise the fostering, the vet appointments, the trapping etc, honestly deserve so much more credit for what they do! It’s been an honour to be able to say that I have given these kitties the best start & loved them like my own... and prepared them for their journey to their furever home. Highly recommended !! 🖤🖤🖤read more
I began my fostering journey after needing help with a stray cat that kept appearing at my house when I noticed he was injured. Saving Strays has become a really important part of my life and is extremely rewarding too, not only to myself but also to my small family who enjoy playing a part too. I highly recommend Saving Strays, we do our utmost... best for every animal in our care and will never turn one away. 🐾🐾read more

This rescue went against agreement for a surrendered pet and said it’s my fault for surrendering her. Made up loads of lies to why I hit back with a post I put on of them trying to intimidate me into handing my rescue pony’s over. They went on then to laugh react to 4 posts on my profile of my mothers funeral. Absolutely sick. They delete any... comment I put on their posts regarding me and blocked me so I can’t tell the truth. They offered to buy a horses that was in good health that was on the same field. Using funding to buy animals. These are pet peddlers not rescuers. I’m not the first that this as happened to and I won’t be the last so be careful surrendering your pets to this shambles.read more
Thank you to Saving Strays for helping us adopt Tommy. Our whole experience has been fantastic when we first fostered and eventually adopted him.He's now a happy, healthy boy who loves sleeping in his bed all day long.
We have had the most incredible experience with Saving Strays so far. We fostered a beautiful Staffie Cross called King in January with the view to adopt him as an official member of our family. Saving Strays have been really supportive and positive throughout the entire process. Hayley has been a message away at all times and is highly... communicative regarding King’s progress. I have been invited to join a group with other animal fosterers working with the charity, and we all regularly update and advise each other on there. Saving Strays has a true community feel. Saving Strays have provided us with all the essentials for King (food, bed, lead, harness etc.), but more notably they have arranged and paid for all of his vets appointments and medication. This charity is highly committed to putting animal welfare first; they are ensuring that King is in his best condition with a long term treatment plan before we move forward and adopt him permanently. Saving Strays follow all safeguarding procedures, including interviews and home visits before fostering can begin. We are then contractually obliged to provide them with updates and take King to the appropriate appointments. The process has been extremely efficient and professional. The best part about Saving Strays is that they truly want what is best for the animals in their care. We are so proud that they selected us to foster King; he has gone from strength to strength with us and we cannot imagine being without him. We are the luckiest dog parents ever and it is amazing to see him get stronger, healthier and most importantly happier as time goes by. We love this dog more than anything 💕Thank You to Saving Strays for completing our family. I would highly recommend this charity to provide a personal, dedicated and friendly service for people looking to foster/adopt animals seeking their forever homes.read more
I contacted Saving Strays looking for a black kitten to join our family. Trinity came to stay with us initally as a foster to adopt. Hayley and her team couldn't have been more patient answering all our silly questions and advising us when needed. There is always someone available for advice. We fell in love with Trinity and have now adopted her. ... We are so greatful to Hayley for helping us find her. The team work non-stop behind the scenes trying to raise funds and find furever homes for the animals in their care. Thank you very much xread more
Saving Strays is a wonderfully supportive and friendly community to be a part of. I recently fostered 5 adorable kittens before they went on to their forever homes. The community were amazing with loads of tips and advice on what to do and where to go. All the animals are so well cared for and loved. It’s a privilege to be a part of it. ❤️
I have been fostering cats from Saving Strays for a very short time but can only say how fantastic an organisation it is. Once I got the call to collect my first foster I was so pleased to be able to take a lovely cat into my home. When they first arrive they are naturally fearful but being able to coax them into joining you voluntarily and then... giving them some love and attention so that they accept you and allow you to make a fuss of them, stroke them and then you get a head bump or hear a first contented purr is the best feeling. Saving Strays makes sure these animals are looked after health wise, so when they are finally adopted they go to their new family fully vaccinated, neutered when needed and in good health. Some are surrendered by their owners who are unable to look after them any more for various reasons and some are strays who are probably living on the streets. It is so rewarding to look after them and give them confidence to live with a forever family. If you are looking for a pet please look at the Saving Strays website before you make any decisions, rescuing an animal is the most rewarding thing you can do.read more
Saving Strays are amazing. Always ready to offer help and support to a stray, be it cat or dog, puppy or kitten, whatever the time of day or night. Wonderful, caring people who always go above and beyond as volunteers to help any animal in need find the love and support they deserve. A huge thank you to Hayley and her dedicated team. Thank you... all for being there for us all at Healing Paws Animal Rescue. We all appreciate the help and support you give to us a rescue organisation too. You help us to help so many.... x xread more
I would 100% recommend. I have been a foster mum since October of 2020 for Saving Strays and I have to say it is a fantastic organisation. The amount of love and care that goes into the animals and their needs is phenomenal. I currently foster 2 of their cats, June and Cally. Both beautiful girls who just need a second chance. If you’re ever... looking to welcome a pet, please consider doing so through here (: ❤️read more
We fostered 2 dogs during Lockdown April 2020 from Saving strays whose owner sadly lost her home. Bella & Louis 11 & 12 years old. They had been together all their lives so we didnt want to split them up. They have improved our lives & given us joy in simply walking with them. Saving Strays have been brilliant, supporting us, advising on food,... pet care for older dogs. Every query answered promptly, clear adoption plan etc. Very positive, caring team with animal welfare & caring approach to the situation owners may find themselves in at the heart of their charity. ♥️🐕 Thank you for giving your time & expertise to both animals & humans. Well done🥇read more
Saving Strays is a phenomenal rescue organisation which is expertly run by dedicated volunteers who strive only for a better future for all animals in their care. The will never turn an animal away in need and this is from my own experience working alongside Hayley and her team. Saving Strays have worked alongside a UK registered charity on many... occasions saving animals which not only need a new home but also expert rehabilitation. They have given these animals a second chance and all of them have gone on to be rehomed in amazing suitable homes. Savings Strays have literally saved the lives of 100’s of animals and are outstanding at what they do. So THANK YOU Saving Strays for saving the lives of those who had no future, for being that stepping stone between life and death and always being there for the animals no matter what. YOU ARE THE BEST at what you do and people would have to go a long way to find a better, more caring, dedicated rescue.read more
No I definitely do not recommend went against GDPR and tried to back track and refused foster to give updates after already doing so for a month. Then blocked after we was worried sick something had happened to her. A dog that as been through trauma in Romania and been through hell and we just wanted to know she was safe in a new home. This was... not the agreement we had. So my partner is now blocked and I no doubt will get blocked now too. Have a good evening Hayley like u said to paula before blocking.read more
Adopted a little black cat from saving strays. She is absolutely amazing my midnight, I'd just like the thank the people who helped rescue her and rehabilitate her so she could come and fill my home with love. They were also very helpful with any questions I had which was good. Thank you for giving us our baby midnight 🥰 x
Saving strays are a fantastic group. I recently adopted my new fur baby Fleur from them. They’ve constantly kept in touch with regards to how she is settling in. If your thinking of providing a forever home for a cat or dog I would highly recommend Saving Strays
I adopted Tyga last November after losing my cat saving strays are a wonderful group of people who go out of their way to rescue ,reabilate and rehome cats and dogs I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to give a animal a forever home
We were looking for a new four legged friend to join our family, and Saving Strays were recommended to us. I’m so glad they were - a fantastic team of volunteers who work very hard. They have strict application and home check procedures which gave me confidence, as they want to make sure the animals are placed in the right homes. Animals are well... cared for in foster homes until adoption - a special mention to Helen and Charlie who were both wonderful.We’ve been lucky enough to adopt our lovely little Bruno recently, and we already can’t imagine life without him. We can’t thank you enough!read more
fantastic work today in farnworth 🙂
What a lovely, caring group of beautiful people. Once the process was started it was very quick and friendly and we was helped every step of the way. We have had Cupid and Comet for just under a week now and you can tell they have had a lot of contact with Deb their foster mum as they are so comfortable around people, definitely loved! Saving... strays has given our family the best present possible with Comet and Cupid and believe me they are already ruling the roost. This caring well run organisation is doing a fantastic job to save cats in need and I’m glad I adopted instead of just brought my fur babies. Thank you for making one family very happy!read more
They are an amazing charity who really care about the animals. They have been super helpful from start to finish in adopting our new fur babies. Millie has been here a month and Billie (cupcake) a week and they have supported us through every step of the process to make sure the cats are as happy as they can be and to help me when I am worrying I... am getting it wrong!read more
Fab job these people do! Should be more people in the world doing this, saving animals! Well done to everyone at Saving Strays.
Fully recommend Saving Strays - I love that they work purely with fosterers so you know all animals are in loving homes not stuck in cages! The planning of all vet visits e.t.c. is all done and you are kept informed the whole time and the training advice and support is just brilliant. Lovely people that helped me adopt this lovely Chloe 🙂

I was looking for a rescue dog to join our family and I happened to come across Saving Strays on Facebook and I am so glad I did! They are passionate about rescuing animals, sadly, there are many to rescue. I saw a post about some puppies which they rescued just before Christmas and applied. They have a robust and thorough vetting system - they... don't want their furbabies to fall into the wrong hands! So after successfully completing questionnaires and home checks (virtual of course), we were matched with our new furbaby Stella. The family are thrilled! She's such a lovely puppy, she's a real goofball! Such fun to be around and she's absolutely gorgeous 😍 Thanks from the bottom of our heart to all the Team at Saving Strays. You all work so hard, with an ever growing team of foster carers and volunteers. You do a fabulous job 👍 Keep up the good work 😘read more
everyone has been amazing! from a completely inexperienced cat daddy! thanks for giving me the chance to adopt my cute little fluff 🙂 you are all so kind and helpful!!!
Definitely recommend Saving Strays. The process was very efficient and professional even through lockdown! We love our two new fur babies. The kittens are so well looked after in their foster homes. It has been wonderful to adopt two beautiful boys that are fully litter trained, flea and wormed, chipped plus in receipt of their first vaccinations.... Their team is also on hand for support post adoption.read more
I would highly recommend Saving Strays as they do fantastic charity work at rehoming so many animals to loving homes. They made whole adoption process quick and easy at helping me find the right cat. Rosie has been perfect so far, she settled down immediately and made herself right at home.Thank you for all your hard work 😺
Adopted 2 beautiful little kittens from saving strays.Lisa and the team made the process seamless. Thank you for our beauties.
Recently adopted an adorable cat through Saving Strays BoltonThe hard work and dedication of the volunteers is wonderful. All the cats need loving homes, please help if you can. Highly recommended.
100% Recommend Saving strays! They're all lovely people, very friendly, efficient & can't do enough to help you x We've just adopted our new fur baby & she's absolutely gorgeous 😻 Would definitely adopt through them again x Keep up the good work & thank you for all of your help ❤❤❤
I got two cats from Saving Strays, who were very thorough in doing home checks to ensure the right cats would be found for a suitable home. They kept in touch to make sure the cats are settling in well and provided advice throughout.

What an amazing organisation Saving Strays are. Thank you to everyone for all your help in letting Meryl and Judi find their forever home with us. We are so happy to be their humans! It's very clear to see everyone at saving strays works so hard and cares very deeply for all the animals.
I can't express in words how fantastic these guys are honestly. We were desperate for help for a stray cat that was living in our garden, this poor cat was in need of a loving home and after trying loads of different places , saving strays offered to help. They contacted me straight away to arrange an emergency place for her and is soon to be in... her foster home until well enough to be re-homed. I have well informed of her progress and even received photos which is amazing. Thank you so so much for all your kind help.read more
We have just got Mike from saving strays and they have been tremendous. From start to finish they have been professional and lovely. I would highly recommend using them if you want to adopt a cat or kitten. If not follow them anyway and help other people get their perfect kitty pal. 😻😸😽
We think that all the staff have been very attentive and helpful when we’ve needed help & guidance. They care very much about the cats which is most important!Having trained aftercarers is a great bonus compared to other adoption places as well. They’re doing a great thing here, taking on all strays and making sure they’re ready for homes.
We've just brought home our 2 beautiful tabby kittens. 2 brothers. We are in love already! I can't thank Lisa enough who has been absolutely amazing with us from day 1. Excellent communication, info and advice. These guys genuinely have a passion to better the lives of every animal they come into contact with. Thank you so much!!Jen and Martin😻... Harry and Theo 😻 xxread more

Always there for animals in distress
A very worthy Charity in Bolton. Saving Strays is a relatively new and up and coming Bolton based pet charity that helps with rescue/rehoming of dogs and cats. Hayley and her team of fosterers work flat out in their roles of voluntary work to make Saving Strays as successful as it is. Home Comforts Cat Sitting recommends Saving Strays and will... continue to support by way of donations to help the charity succeed in its mission of saving as many strays and unwanteds as they possibly can. 🐾 🐾read more
Saving strays helped my mum to find the perfect cat for their family, Lisa was very helpful and Nala fitted in immediately and is a well loved part of the family
Adopted a kitten two weeks ago and she has settled in really well. She was obviously well trained and looked after in her first ten weeks. Recommend Saving Strays if your looking to adopt a cat or kitten
Saving Strays were fantastic from start to finish. Everyone I have been in contact with has been incredibly friendly and helpful. We love our new addition, and the transition from beginning our journey to now has been very smooth.
Wow! Thanks to Hayley and the team at Saving Strays...we have found our wonderful Boris and he’s now found his forever home too!!!We really wanted to find the perfect cat to fit our family and Boris is definitely the right match! We can’t thank Saving Strays enough for rescuing him and letting us adopt him. Definitely would recommend this... fantastic charity to help you find your forever furry friend 🐾 🐾 🐾read more

Wonderful warm people who do their very best by their little charges. Very friendly and helpful. Uncomplicated adoption of healthy animals
fantastic charity, you can tell they really care about every animal. they led us to a cat who suits our family just perfectly. thank you saving strays.
I adopted a lovely cat through saving strays. They were great and really managed my expectations with how she would be and how long it would take for her to settle. They have stayed in touch and have been a great help!
Saving strays are a fabulous rescue and adoption service! They were so patient with us and made sure we had the right cat to fit with our family and lifestyle! Tinkerbelle has fit in with us beautifully! She is laid back and loves a cuddle but is also kinda crazy too, so fits with us perfectly! 🐱 😜 Hayley, Sue and Helen were brill thank you ladies... you are doing an amazing job! X xread more
Very friendly, helpful and acomodating. Lisa was great with us, we were very undecided at first between rescuing a cat or a kitten. The team have so many cats but Lisa was so patient and helpful in helping us make sure we had the right cat for our home and lifestyle! thank you to you all!
These ladies do an amazing job, so many little lives have been saved because they give their time and love. We have just adopted a kitten and after 15 minutes of sniffing she was playing and cuddling. This is all thanks to their care. Thanks you to everyone at saving strays xxxx
Really helpful giving my grandparents the opportunity to adopt a cat. They are both over the moon. Very quick and efficient service and extremely friendly. Thank you so much . Also for communicating through me to help them!
Haley and Lisa we're nothing short of amazing during the adoption process with Salem the Cat. We really can't thank them and all at 'Saving Strays' enough for the hard work and dedication in finding better lives for all the animals they help. We've always adopted cats through charities and agencies over the years, but 'Saving Strays', with their... personalised and caring approach are by far the best. 5star - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read more
I contacted saving strays after some issues with a ‘stray’ on our estate. We didn’t know where to turn but the guys here were so helpful and advised what to do. We managed to catch him yesterday and within an hour he was collected by saving strays and looked after. Turns out he was chipped and was reunited with his owner today. Although he wasn’t... a needy stray these guys were fantastic and kept us posted with updates and helped ensure a cat we were concerned about was healthy and had a loving home - just seems to be a wanderer. These guys give up their time and seriously care and we can’t thank them enough for their help but moreover what they do for cats in need. All credit to them and all they do. Thankyouread more
