For dogs; we are arranging appointments to meet the dogs once we have received suitable applications.
For cats and rabbits; we cannot allow visitors onto the site, so when you complete the online form, we will explain the process via email.

Cat and rabbit socialising: we’re sorry but we’re still unable to take bookings – we’ll update the website when we’re able to start again
Dog walking: all dogs are being walked by staff so there’s no urgency in this regard. When we start dog walking again, we wont be taking on new volunteers – we’re lucky enough to have lots of lovely dog walkers.

If you are donating bedding, please note that we can only accept towels and blankets. If you want to donate bedding, please leave them by our entrance gate in the wooden crate.

Any other visitors to the Sanctuary are on an appointment-only basis. Please email us at
