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 and rely on the generosity and goodwill of our supporters to keep our kennel and cattery doors open. We rescue and rehome around 800 animals each year, finding loving and responsible new homes for each and every one of them. It costs approximately £650,000 every year to run – that’s over £1,780 each and every single day. 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.
OUR COVID-19 SANCTUARY DIARY
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) STATEMENT – UPDATE 24/03/2020
DUE TO THE MOST RECENT GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENTS WE ARE SAD TO SAY THAT THE SANCTUARY IS NOW CLOSED.
We will be operating our phones and emails for as long as possible on a skeleton team of office staff and our animal carers will be working around the clock to care for the animals on site. Potential adopters, you are welcome to email for an application form to adopt at a later date, however please be patient with us and kind to our rehoming team as we are so stretched.

RIP BEAUTIFUL EVIE
On Friday 21st February, Evie didn’t return to her home as usual and the following day we were informed of her tragic death. Evie was adopted from Holly Hedge with her sister Kiki in November 2018 when they were kittens. This poor little cat was found in Chessel Drive, Patchway on the Charlton Hayes Estate. Evie, a sweet and loving little soul who lived happily with her family and sibling, was very much loved and in a wonderful home with people who adored her. She trusted humans as she had only ever known kindness in her short life – until the evil, sadistic perpetrators targeted her and so cruelly ended her life. The sadness we feel for dear little Evie and her grieving family is overwhelming, and all of us at Holly Hedge are grieving with them and are totally devastated by this heartbreaking news.
