Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary is a local independent charity that rescues and rehomes unwanted, abandoned and often mistreated cats and dogs. We receive no funding from the government or National Lottery and rely on the generosity and goodwill of our supporters to keep our kennel and cattery doors open. It costs approximately £650,000 every year to run – that’s over £1,780 each and every single day. We rescue and rehome around 1000 animals each year finding loving and responsible new homes for each and every one of them. No animal is put to sleep unless we are advised that it is in their best interest to do so by a veterinary surgeon, this decision is never taken lightly.

Volunteer Dog Lockup

We are sorry but we currently have enough dog lockup volunteers. Please check to see when we have spaces available.

Volunteer Dog Walking

We are sorry but due to the ground conditions in the woods we have had to suspend the Volunteer Dog Walking Applications/Inductions until the spring.

Our aim at Holly Hedge is to find all the animals that we take into our care their fur-ever homes. Whilst they stay with us, you could help us to help them by becoming their Paw Pal.
