Welcome to Holly Hedge

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 £616,000 every year to run – that’s over £1,687 each and every single day.

We rescue and rehome around 800 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.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is now LIVE!
Please consider giving to us and your donation will be doubled if made before December 4th. You can donate here.
You really can make a HUGE difference with a small gesture.
Thank you

Paws in Peril

PLEASE SAVE OUR SANCTUARY! They come to us with broken hearts, broken limbs and broken spirits, but with dwindling funds, we desperately need your financial support to put them back together again. Please read our story and learn how you can help us to continue the work we do. Thank you

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

The Christmas Shoebox Appeal asks that you help make Christmas special for those animals in rescues by filling up a shoe box with animal related products which you can donate to a rescue centre like us. Here at Holly Hedge, we are particularly in need of toys for the cats and dogs, as they really help with training and socialisation, which ultimately helps us rehome them.

Paw Pals

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.

Give Christmas to our Animals

Over the colder months the rate of adoptions for rescue animals go down, whilst our heating & electric bills rise. When an animal comes to us we make a promise their life will only be good, with your help we can give them the Christmas they deserve.
