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 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.

Please email the Manager, Alison Cookson at email@example.com to request further information or to send a cover letter and CV. Closing date for applications will be 16thMay 2016.
IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR DOG OWNERS
It is now law that ALL dogs should be micro-chipped with their owners correct details.
One of our qualified staff can chip and register your pet for a small fee of £12.00, no appointment necessary.
We get calls everyday at the Sanctuary 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 It is amazing how many of those animals are still NOT micro-chipped or the information on the chip is out of date.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animal is either not chipped, is chipped but the chip has never been registered or that the details of the owner are out of date.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.
It is NOW the LAW that your dog is micro-chipped. Is your dog chipped? If so 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 – 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?
UNSURE IF YOUR DOG’S CHIP DETAILS ARE CORRECT?
If you have had your dog from someone else, a breeder or a rescue and you are unsure if the dog was ever chipped? Or if it was that the chip was changed into YOUR details? If you have moved? Or changed your mobile phone number and are not sure you have informed the chip company? Maybe you are unsure of which company your dog is chipped with?
The best thing to do is to take your dog along to your vet, or a rescue centre, and have it scanned. From the numbers that the chip starts with you can learn which company it is registered with – the main 3 are Pet Log, Anibase or Avid. From there you can contact them and ensure that the dog is chipped to you. This not only ensures that you dog can be traced back to you should it become lost or stolen but you will also then be legal.
Are you currently booking your summer holiday? Do not forget that our boarding kennels are open all year round and we are ready to look after your dog whilst you are away.
Wythall Animal Sanctuary we have been boarding dogs for over forty years. In 2014 we had major rebuilding work done to create new accommodation for our rescued dogs. We took the opportunity to completely refit and extend the boarding kennels, with state of the art materials and underfloor heating 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 and fed on which ever food you prefer. Your dog will receive twice daily on or off lead walks , whichever you prefer, in their own secure field.
Our experienced and caring staff are able to administer any regular medication your pet is due and we do not stipulate against certain breeds as some kennels do. We are willing to cater for your dogs individual needs.
All profits from our boarding kennels are fed back into our rescue charity 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 your dog having the kennel cough vaccination. If your dog is not yet vaccinated against kennel cough, it must be administered at least 2 weeks before your dogs stay with us. This is because kennel cough, or canine infectious bronchitis, is an airborne virus which your dog will shed initially after vaccination.
If you haven’t boarded with us before you are welcome to view our facilities without obligation to see for yourself where your furry friend will be staying whilst in our care.
We charge £15 per dog per day. We also have double kennels that 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.
If you have any questions we would be happy to help – 01564 823288.
