Heathlands Animal Sanctuary

Heathlands Animal Sanctuary

COVID-19: Heathlands Animal Sanctuary will not be taking any new animals, including returns, owing to the new Government legislation. Viewings of dogs in care are also suspended. We thank you for all the offers of foster care but, as we cannot do home-checks, this too is not possible. If you have already reserved a dog in care we will contact you regarding the way forward and we thank you for your patience and understanding at this most difficult time. We ask that you all adhere to the current advice so that we can return to normal as soon as possible and sincerely hope you and your family remain safe and well. Thank you.
