Covid-19

Due to the outbreak of the Corona Virus and new DEFRA guidelines, we are rehoming cats and guinea pigs using a new, minimal contact process.  You can find out more information about this via the Rehoming page.  We will still accept cat and hedgehog admissions as normal with new social distancing procedures.  Physical donations are still welcomed but will have to be left infront of the Shop.  We will be keeping everyone up to date on our Social Media accounts, you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok.

Thank you all for your continued support in these unprecedented times.

Made up of a dedicated team of Staff and Volunteers, Woodlands Animal Sanctuary aim to help neglected, unwanted and ill animals
