Our 5* licenced boarding kennels are open all year round. We cater for all your dogs individual needs by caring and qualified staff. You are welcome to view the kennels. Our aim is to provide your dog with a relaxed and fulfilling stay so you and your dog will be happy customers.
As well as dogs and cats we also offer a safe haven for many other animals. We always have rabbits looking for homes, often guinea pigs and others such as ponies, ferrets, rodents and parakeets. As well as domestic animals we also take in injured and orphaned birds and small wildlife. Wherever possible we care for them until they can be released but if they need more specialised care we pass them on to a wildlife rescue.
On the 17th of August 2016 a couple of members of staff helped rescue a dog from a house roof in Wythall !! We had a call from a very concerned member of the public who said the dog had been on the roof for some time and the fire brigade couldn’t help. We mustered ladders, treats, food, toys, leads, harnesses and our catch pole and rushed over. We arrived just after the fire crew who had come all the way from Bewdley.
We went upstairs and with a fire officer up a ladder supporting Millie to stop her from falling, (at this point she was very hot and tired) we managed to lean out the Velux window put the catch pole loop around her neck, secure it and pull her in through the window. Afterwards, 8 year old Millie had a long drink and seemed rather pleased with her antics.
The pet sitter told us the owners were due back off holiday that day! As you can imagine the owners were rather surprised at seeing a picture of their dog sat on their roof when they had just stepped off a plane from their summer holiday. At first they thought that the picture had been photo shopped, they are supporters of our charity and were extremely grateful to all involved in Millie’s rescue.

Our lovely Patron Rock legend Tony Iommi is in New York at the moment and is extremely busy with ‘The End’ sell out world tour with Black Sabbath. Despite this he still had time to call us yesterday (23rd August) to see how all the animals were and to tell us he hadn’t forgotten us. Tony keeps up to date with our news on our Facebook and website and very kindly said he will donate some items for our upcoming fundraising Rock Night auction (more news on that shortly.)
WORK STARTS TO REFURBISH RABBIT AND GUINEA PIG ENCLOSURE
Over September Hazel House, which houses our rescued rabbits and guinea pigs, provides accommodation for boarding rabbits and guinea pigs and also gives a temporary home to other rescued small animals and caged birds is undergoing major refurbishment work.
The animals currently in there are being moved to temporary accommodation within the Sanctuary whilst the work is carried out.
Our aim is to replace all of our wooden hutches, which have served us well for many years and have provided a safe haven for countless rescued rabbits and guinea pigs over the years, with modern easy to clean and none chewable ones which will, hopefully last us well into the future so that we can continue to take in and re-home rescued, abandoned and unwanted rabbits and guinea pigs.
Whilst we are having the work done we are taking the opportunity to revamp and increase the size and rearrange the positions of the exercise runs within Hazel House to optimise the room available to the animals using them and more ease of access for their carers. Each rabbit and guinea pig gets an allocated slot daily in an exercise pen.
Sadly there are still far too many unwanted rabbits and just not enough homes for them. Despite being able to house a good number here at the Sanctuary we still receive phone calls daily asking for help and we have to work off a waiting list of rabbits needing a rescue space… One in one out! So these new hutches really are a necessity.
