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.
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.
SPECIAL APPEAL – Meet Bailey. He is a 8 year old liver and white Springer Spaniel dog. Bailey has already been with us for a few weeks so staff and carers have got to know him well. The reason he has not yet been put up for adoption is because we have sadly discovered that he has cancer. When he came into our care he had to have a lump removed and the analysis of that unfortunately showed that he has a particularly aggressive form of cancer.
To see Bailey run around here at the Sanctuary you would not think there was anything wrong with him but of course we know differently. He is a lovely friendly boy and a typical Springer Spaniel.
We are happy to fund and oversee his future health care but feel it would be unfair to keep him in a kennel situation for the time he has left.
Sadly this disease will shorten his life but our vets are not able to give us a time scale. When our vet removed his lump he was able to remove quite a good amount of tissue from around the site so we are hoping that this will help. Our vet has warned us though that Bailey may only have as little as another year to live. No one, of course, has told Bailey this and he is happily getting on with just being an 8 year old Springer Spaniel.
We are looking for a special FOSTER home for Bailey. Ideally we are looking for an experienced spaniel owner. Bailey could live with a dog friendly bitch but not a male dog.
Bailey would be best going to a family with sensible older children as he can get quite attached to his toys and blankets. A home local to us would be ideal as he would need to continue any further treatment at our vets in Redditch.
Animals Friends Insurance Charity Competetion
Many many thanks to all of you who voted for us in the recent Animal Friends competition . The good news is that we came 2nd! Which is wonderful considering we had so much completion. It also mean that our charity has won £5000! So once again thank you everyone.
SUPPORT OUR DOG SHOW
On Saturday the 4th of July we are holding a fund raising novelty dog show in nearby Wythall Park.
If any local businesses would like to sponsor one of the classes, for a minimum of £30, and have the class named after the company please get in touch with us.
We are also offering stall spaces to other animal rescues and are looking for local stallholders such as craft makers, cards, jewelry, candles, pet accessories etc.
DOG TOY APPEAL
We are asking for donations of dog toys please. Our rescue dogs have been rather over zealous and enthusiastic with their toys and the ones that remain in use are looking rather the worse for ware! In particular we are looking for the hard wearing toys that our dogs can have fun with both in the kennel and outside. If you can help please drop any donated toys into here at the Sanctuary or call us on 01564 823288. Thank you.
