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.
DID YOU KNOW ALL OUR CATS AND KITTENS HAVE BEEN BLOOD TESTED AND ARE NEGATIVE FOR DISEASES FIV AND FELV?

CAN YOU HELP SPARKY?
As you know here at Wythall Animal Sanctuary we not only re-home animals but we offer a permanent, loving and safe home to any animal who for some reason or another can not be found a new home or are simply just never chosen by anyone for adoption. Some of our resident animals are featured on our sponsorship scheme.
This is Sparky. Some of you may be aware of him. He is a rescued pony who has been with us for about 5 years. He is not one of our sponsored animals but as he is the best friend of one of our sponsored ponies, Leah, and her sponsors often get to hear about Sparky and receive photos of him with their updates of her.
Sparky is in his late 20’s and came to us via another pony rescue who was struggling with the amount of ponies in their care and put an appeal out to other rescues to see if they could take on any of the ponies to help. Sparky came to live with us and immediately developed a close bond with Leah.
Over the time he has been with us he has had problems with one of his eyes and has required medication on and off. Sparky is a tall, spirited pony and giving him his medication and eye drops has not always been an easy task for his carers.
A few months ago we saddened to discover that the problem in his eye was deteriorating and despite all of our, and our vets, efforts to the contrary the only solution was for Sparky to have his eye removed. It was either this or consider losing him and we were not prepared to do that.
A few weeks ago Sparky had his eye removed. It was a tense and worrying time for everyone at the Sanctuary. Initially Sparky had to keep the eye bandaged, easier said than done, and he had to stay indoors in his stable to reduce to risk of infection.
Sparky did not take well to his new situation and we have been very concerned and worried that we might have to lose him despite all of our hard work and prayers. Only a few days ago we were fearing the worse as he seemed in discomfort, had lost his appetite and did not seem to be responding well to his antibiotics.
Today I am glad to report to you that we are all VERY happy that he seems to have turned a corner! He is much more settled in himself, his wound is looking much better and his appetite has picked up which means that he is taking his meds much easier. He is now having Manuka Honey applied to his wound and the difference has been quite miraculous.
Please join with us in keeping everything crossed that everything keeps improving for this boy and that he soon makes a complete recovery and can once again be back with his beloved Leah in the paddocks.
Once again we are asking for your help. Our vet bill for Sparky’s operation, treatment, medication and vets visits is a real concern. Obviously he will need to continue with these treatments until he is fully recovered. Could you help by donating towards Sparky’s vet bill? If so PLEASE link to Sparky’s Just Giving Page We really feel we needed to give Sparky this chance, we hope that you agree.
Thanking you in advance Sparky and all at Wythall Animal Sanctuary.
UPDATE – Sparky is doing well. He is much happier in himself and is healing well. Obviously we still have a way to go and your continued support is vital but we are so pleased that with your help we feel we made the right decision in giving Sparky this chance at a happy normal life.
Joy finds shelter at Christmas
Update on Joy the heavily pregnant girl who was dumped at our gates this Christmas.
Joy has had her kittens! She has given birth to 6 bouncing babies! Mother and kittens doing well.
Here is a familiar festive tale — a young heavily pregnant girl finds herself without shelter on Christmas Eve. This beautiful young tabby female was abandoned at our gates on a cold winter night just two days before Christmas. Only a baby herself and heavily pregnant. Luckily for her she was discovered at 10.30pm by Ross our assistant manager who lives on site so she did not have to spend the night out in the bitter cold and after some juggling in our cattery we were able to find a space for her. She is safe and has somewhere warm to have her babies. The beautiful tabby girl is very friendly and was wearing a brown collar so we think she has been a pet. Sadly the kitten who we have Christened ‘Joy’ is not chipped.
