We regret that our cat section is usually full to capacity and we normally have a long waiting list for admissions. In case of an emergency admission only, please email our Section Manager at and she will be able to advise you about the possibility of including the cat on our waiting list.  When admitting a cat, a donation towards the cost of looking after our animals is always very much appreciated.


As with all our animals we do have a waiting list.  Please contact the Sanctuary by email at with a detailed request about the animal.  We will then be able to advise you whether we can accomodate the animal, but please note that we can only accept domesticated small animals and not those from the wild.  If it is an emergency, i.e. an injured animal, you could also call us on 01706 822577.


We usually have a waiting list for dog admissions.  Before we admit a dog we do a behavioural/temperament test with the dog to ensure they are suitable for re-homing.  This means you will need to ring us on 01706 822577 when you will be asked some basic questions.  You will also need to arrange an appointment with us for the assessment which you can do at the same time.

Assuming the dog passes the assessment, we would then place your dog on our waiting list.  We will only be able to take the dog in when we have the room and it is not possible to say how long the wait would be.  Please download a copy of the Dog Admission form below and bring it with you to the assessment.  Please do NOT post the form as we only require this when you bring your dog to us for the assessment.

Please note that if a dog is not suitable for re-homing we regret that we will not be able to accept your pet.
