Every year hundreds of animals become homeless for many reasons. Our mission is to locate and rescue abandoned or homeless animals around the country and provide a better life for them. Just like human beings they need love, care and of course they also need a safe caring home. Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary provides a safe haven, and a caring environment for any animal we find in need. We have a large number of long term residents at Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary as well as a very busy re-homing centre which operates as Bildershaw Animal Rescue. We are entirely staffed by volunteers and funded by donations. Our registered charity (Friends of Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary - No.1153233) co-ordinates fund-raising and provides support for for our volunteers and fundraisers. Our very active team of fundraisers organise many varied events to support us. Details of future planned events can be found by clicking on our Events page in the website menu. A number of companies, schools and individuals have Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary as their charity of choice. This support is really appreciated and links to their websites can be found at the bottom of this page.



Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary operates a policy of continuous improvement for the welfare of rescued animals. We operate a no kill policy and we re-home only where it is appropriate.


Success Stories

We love to hear from people who have re-homed our animals. It is so satisfying and heart warming to see our former residents in their forever homes and to see how well they are adapting to their new lives. You can see some of the most recent feedbacks we have had by clicking the ``re-home`` button on the top menu and then select ``success stories``.
