Thank you visiting our website
We hope you will spend some time looking at our site. If there is any animal you feel you could adopt, please call us first to discuss your interest. Thank you for visiting.
DID YOU KNOW ALL OUR CATS AND KITTENS HAVE BEEN BLOOD TESTED AND ARE NEGATIVE FOR DISEASES FIV AND FELV?
For more information on this please see the link below;-
Our 5* licenced boarding kennels are open all year round. We cater for all your dogs individual needs by 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.

IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR DOG OWNERS
From April this year ALL dogs MUST be micro-chipped with their owners correct details. Are YOU prepared?
One of our qualified staff can chip and register your pet for a small fee of £12.00, no appointment necessary.
Here at the Sanctuary we get calls every day from people who have lost or found animals. It is amazing how many of those animals are still NOT micro-chipped or the information on the chip is out of date.
Collars can get lost, tags fall off or even get removed.
All rescue centres, veterinary surgeries, RSPCA officers and dog wardens have mobile scanners. As soon as a stray animal is found it takes only minutes to check for a chip, call the microchip companies and be given the owners details. What lets this system down is when we find that the animal is either not chipped, is chipped but the chip has never been registered or that the details of the owner are out of date. Then everything grinds to a halt.
This April it becomes the LAW to have your dog micro-chipped. Are you ready? Is your dog chipped? Are the details that you gave to the chip company still correct? Have you moved address? Changed your telephone number? If you got the dog from an advert, breeder or rescue centre is the dog definitely now in YOUR details? Do not leave it until next year check now.
Micro-chipping your pets makes sense, if your pet went missing wouldn’t you want to be reunited as quickly as possible?
Micro-chipping is relatively painless, it is injected under the skin in between the shoulder blades.
Micro-chipping is not expensive. Can you afford not to get it done?
Are you currently booking your summer holiday? Do not forget that our boarding kennels are open and ready to look after your dog whilst you are away. Here at Wythall Animal Sanctuary we have been boarding dogs for over forty years. In 2014 we had major rebuilding work done for new accommodation for our rescued dogs. We took the opportunity whilst the builders were here to give our boarding kennels a facelift to make your dogs stay even more comfortable.
Our boarding 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. 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.
Many people have already booked their summer dates but we still have vacancies so when you are planning your summer get away do not forget to get your dog booked in for their holiday here with us for their holiday in the country.
Please remember your dog must be fully up to date with their vaccinations and have had a booster within the last 12 months. We will require to see proof of this prior to your dogs day of arrival. We now insist on the kennel cough vaccination and ask if your dog has not yet had it done it must to be done at least 2 weeks before your dog is due to come to stay with us. This is because kennel cough, or canine infectious bronchitis, is an airborne virus which your dog will shed initially after vaccination and if your dog comes in to our kennels 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. We have a large double kennel your two dogs can share. For more details check out our boarding page.
We are happy to take preliminary bookings and receive deposits by card over the phone.
