A Second Chance of Love
since 1968

Welcome to Wythall Animal Rescue where we help neglected, mistreated and homeless animals find a second chance of love.

Our mission is simple, to rescue, shelter and rehabilitate as many animals that need our help as we can. We offer safety and care until we can find new families to love them, or they can live out their lives with us if that’s the right thing for them. Our vision is to educate children of today so they become responsible pet owners of the future so fewer animals come to harm in our communities.

UPDATE COVID 19

We will be opening for rehoming again from this week. To be able to adhere to government guidelines we will not be open with visiting times as we were before, we have to make some changes:

We will be rehoming and viewing by appointment only for now, this is so that we are able to control the amount of people coming on to the premises and stick to social distancing. We do have a few animals that already have potential homes waiting, so we will be dealing with these first. We will call you over the next few days and arrange a day and time for you to come up. Please bare with us as there a few to arrange.
For the safety of our staff and the public, we will be doing virtual homechecks.

For the moment we are still on minimal staff, and have new cleaning procedures to go through each day, so things may take a little longer. Unfortunately we are not able to invite our volunteers back just yet.

All fundraising events have been cancelled throughout the summer, but we will be to continuing to fundraise online, so please keep following and sharing because the help of our supporters is needed now more than ever 🧡

Thankyou to everyone who has been supporting us so far, and for your patience those of you who have been waiting to rehome one of our animals. It is very much appreciated in these difficult times.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

IMPORTANT NOTICE

As a precaution due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are limiting visitors to the Sanctuary for now. We will be closed to the general public for looking around the Sanctuary, however, we are still rehoming animals, but it will be by appointment only.

Can we please ask any volunteers who are feeling unwell not to come in thank you. 

If there is an animal you are interested in adopting, please call the Sanctuary or email your details, and a member of staff will call you back. If you are suited to the animal, a visit will then be arranged for you to come to the Sanctuary to meet them.

Boarding clients - pick up/drop off is as usual. If you are showing symptoms or have come from one of the countries on the government list (link in comments), please call us before coming to the Sanctuary, or make arrangements for someone else to collect.
If you need to cancel your boarding due to holiday cancellations, please let us know as soon as possible.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but need our staff fit and healthy to look after the animals, so need to take every precaution we can.

Hidden Easter Hazards For Your Pets

Hidden Easter Hazards For Your Pets

Whilst overindulging during the Easter period may result in a few extra lbs for us humans, the consequences for our animal companions are much greater and much more serious. The accidental ingestion of any Easter gifts such as plants, bouquets, chocolate, treats containing chocolate, raisins or artificial sweeteners can lead to serious illness or even death for our beloved furry friends. Even the packaging our Easter gifts arrive in can be toxic or hazardous to our pets.

Fostering

Sometimes we are looking for foster homes for our rescues. If an animal is not adapting well to life in a rescue space a short term foster can take them out of the situation and allow them to live in a normal household environment. Alternatly sometimes for elderly or infirm animals we ask for long term foster carers and we will cover veterinary costs. see our FOSTERING page for more details.
