The customers of Pets At Home Cramlington, as part of their Christmas "Santa Paws" appeal raised a total of £4675.50. The cheque was handed over to SHAK (Safe Homes and Kindness).

Staff from the Westmorland Retail Park store handed a cheque over to SHAK (Safe Homes and Kindness) a Northumberland charity which saves and rehabilitates dogs who are destined to be destroyed.

SHAK has come a long way since it was founded by Stephen Wylie in 2006 after the death of his dog and best friend Shak.

Working only with destruction cases from vets, strays and dogs from trusted charity partners, SHAK does not take in dogs from members of the public.
