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. We rescue and rehome around 800 animals each year, finding loving 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.
