Due to the current situation and following both government guidelines and those issued by the Association of Dogs & Cats Homes we want to keep you updated with our current situation and our current adoption procedures.

The Sanctuary continues to stay closed to the general public to protect both visitors and our staff from coming into contact with each other to minimise risk. We continue to run with a skeleton team on site, working extra hard to ensure all our animals continue to receive the highest level of care. Our reduced office staff continue to answer phones and emails and are responding to enquiries as soon as possible.

With this in mind we are continuing to rehome our dogs and cats with the aid of virtual home checks, using photos and videos and our usual checks and application forms. We would ask that all potential adopters please visit our animal rehoming pages and if they see a specific dog or cat they feel would be the right fit for their family, please email our rehoming team on: info@hollyhedge.org.uk for more information and to assess whether they may be the right match for you.

Once we have received your email we will send you an application form to begin the rehoming process.

Please bear with us as we continue to navigate through these procedures and know we’ll treat all adoptions on a case by case basis. We care about our dogs and cats deeply, so of course we want to find them their forever home, but we have to be thorough as having our animals come back to us due to an incompatible match would be devastating for them.

Please only call if you see ONE animal that you feel is the right match to determine whether we can go ahead with an adoption. This will be based on multiple factors such as your location, whether you have had a dog/cat before, the home set up etc, whether there are other pets and children in the home who will need to meet prior to adoption etc.

During these continued difficult and challenging times, please know that we need your support more than ever, as Coronavirus has had a devastating impact on our finances. We have continued to rescue throughout the Covid-19 crisis despite dwindling funds, and never once closed our doors to animals desperate for help. We urgently need to raise vital funds to continue to be their lifeline and keep them safe from harm. Please consider making a donation or supporting us monthly by becoming a PawPal by clicking here. Our PawPals are our everyday heroes and knowing what is coming in monthly helps us make life saving decisions for our animals every day.

Thank you all for your support and understanding as always.
