Thank you for coming to Wythall Animal Sanctuary website

AT LAST! OUR FANTASTIC BOARDING KENNELS ARE NOW OPEN FOR VIEWING AND BOOKINGS.
BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
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 dedicated wildlife rescue.
Have you seen our new video of the Sanctuary. Our receptionist Jo Welsby has put together a lovely montage of the Sanctuary animals, staff and descriptions of the work we do set to emotional background music. Well worth a watch.
Looking for a last minute bargain holiday? Hoping to catch the last of the summer sun? Do not forget that our , revamped, boarding kennels are now back open and ready to look after your dog whilst you are away. Wythall Animal Sanctuary have been boarding dogs for over forty years. Last year we had to temporarily close our boarding facilities whilst we had major rebuilding work done for new accommodation for our rescued dogs. We took the opportunity to give our boarding kennels a facelift to make your dogs stay even more comfortable. Our kennels are separate from our rescue kennels and are heated to ensure we can provide year around accommodation for your pet. Your dog will be housed in its own kennel and run, fed on whatever food he or she enjoys at home with you. Your dog will receive daily on or off lead walks , whichever you prefer, in our own secure field. Our experienced staff are able to administer any regular medication your pet is on and we do not stipulate against certain breeds as some kennels do. We only have 11 boarding kennels so your dog will receive more individual attention than a lot of larger kennels can offer. All profits from our boarding kennels are fed back into our rescue so by boarding with us you are also helping us to save the lives of unwanted and abandoned animals.
Since we re-opened we have been busy and bookings for Christmas are being placed already. We still have vacancies for September and October so if you are planning that last minute get away book your dog in with us for their own holiday in the country whilst you are away.
Please remember your dog must be fully up to date with their vaccinations as we require proof of this prior to your day of arrival. We do not insist on the kennel cough vaccination but ask if your dog is having it done please remember it is a live vaccination and so needs to be done at least 3 weeks before your dog is due to come in. This is because kennel cough, or canine infectious bronchitis, is a airborne virus which your dog will shed initially after vaccination and if your dog comes in shedding the virus it could infect our other boarding dogs and maybe then spread to our rescue kennels which would result in the not only the rescue and boarding kennels needing to be closed for a while, a large vet bill for the charity to cover but more importantly illness and discomfort to the dogs in our care. So I am sure you can see why we ask you to please adhere to our procedures on this point.
We would ask anyone who has not boarded with us before to please visit our facilities to see for yourself where you furry friend will be staying whilst in our care.
We charge just £15 per dog per day. For more details check out our boarding page.
We are happy to take preliminary bookings and receive deposits by card over the phone.
