Having a pet is not a right, it’s a privilege.

An Animal Sanctuary with a difference !

Heathlands Animal Sanctuary  is a registered charity based in Royston, Hertfordshire and is run solely by volunteers dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of unwanted domestic pets. We take in dogs, cats, rabbits and some types of caged birds. We do not rescue wildlife. Every year we find secure, loving new homes for 300 - 400 animals most of whom would otherwise have been destroyed in council pounds when their 7 days are up. We have a policy of non-destruction which means we will never destroy a healthy, well balanced animal. We do not have a premises - most of our animals are cared for by foster carers in their own homes. Some of our dogs are boarded at commercial kennels until we have a foster space. By placing our animals in foster homes we get a much better idea of their temperament, in particular we can find out if our dogs get along with children, cats and other dogs, as well as introducing some basic training – something many have never had.

We rehome most of our animals in the Herts/Cambs/Beds area although we consider adoptions nationwide.


We require a donation for each animal we rehome to recover some of our costs.
