When two of Express Recruitment’s Company Directors went on holiday to the Island of Lanzarote, they saw an unbelievable amount of stray and injured cats & dogs. They were devastated to hear that the island had only one sizeable animal sanctuary, who do their very best to take in every stray and unwanted dog and cat. Each year during their stays on the island, they both spend a great deal of their time at the sanctuary. Both animal lovers admit to being in “bits” when first visiting SARA.

The charity survives solely from donations given by individuals and businesses on the island, and they just had to be a part of this! Funds are essential to manage the upkeep of the animal shelter, and provide food to the sick and abandoned dogs and cats. As no healthy animal is ever euthanised by the charity, many animals spend the whole of their lives “behind bars” in the searing heat. As the volunteers tend to focus on the cute and easy dogs, the less pretty animals with the trickier temperaments can sometimes miss the opportunity of exercise outside the confines of the sanctuary.

Our Mission, and how we aim to achieve it…

Our aim is to contribute to the wellbeing of these Animals by raising funds to improve the quality of the sanctuary, and to re-house a minimum of 15 dogs per year in homes in the UK.

Since our Directors began this incredible work in 2009, they have successfully found forever homes in the UK for well over 100 dogs, some of which they have kept as their own loving pets. Not only will they find these loyal animals a loving home, but they will also ensure they have a passport, vaccinations, are neutered, and flea free!

The Express Recruitment team partake in a “dress down Friday” once a month, where they will each donate money to this crucial cause. Alongside this, some our team choose to partake in additional charity events, such as; fun runs, marathons, and any other sponsored activities!

What can you do?

If you are a dog lover yourself, or know someone who is, then please do not hesitate to call us now! There are 100’s of dogs on the Island desperate to find a loving home, we will always advertise our list of dogs who are in the UK, and ready for adoption, so please keep an eye on our website.
