Brockswood Animal Sanctuary is based in Sedgley, West Midlands in the UK. We care for and rehabilitate sick, injured, abused and in many cases abandoned and unwanted animals; giving them a safe and happy Forever Home here with us, whilst also endeavouring to restore and renovate the 'Cotwall End' site. Learn More

We don't receive funding from the Council or Government, and we are completely reliant on the kindness and generosity of others in order to keep the sanctuary open and care for all of our animals. Every little helps and we are extremely grateful for your support - our work and successes are only possible thanks to your help and generosity!

All of the animals at Brockswood are rescued and can vary depending on what we have taken in. You may see some animals that are in a poor condition; these are some that have recently arrived and are undergoing treatment.

Sadly, some of them have had a bad start in life, but by supporting our work, you are helping us to ensure that their lives will always be happy from now on!

2022 Opening Update!

The question you keep asking us (thank you!), we are pleased to announce we have set a re-opening date for Saturday 9th April and we can’t wait to see you again! While we’d love to open earlier, the bad weather has taken quite a toll on our paths and paddocks, and we need just a little more time to allow them to recover for you and our residents. This will also give us some more time to finish some of the important building work we have been carrying out fixing damaged walls, water pipes, fences, and areas of the sanctuary that were impacted during the recent storms. We can’t thank you enough for your patience and continued support, and we’re so looking forward to welcoming you back.

See you soon!

Chicken Appeal

We are asked to take in chickens on an almost daily basis and frequently find them sadly dumped at our gates or even launched over our fence. Chickens are fast becoming one of the country's most neglected animals - hatching projects are continuing to gain momentum in schools and care homes with no thought about the future of the chicks once hatched; chickens obtained to cure boredom during lockdown are now being cast aside, and commercially farmed hens kept for laying in their thousands face being culled with nowhere else to go as they are disposed of by the egg farming industry.

Roosters are in even more trouble, while they are not considered useful due to their inability to lay eggs, loud crowing, and sometimes difficult temperaments.

We currently have 28 chickens at Brockswood and want to be able to do more for these wonderful birds and the many more out there in need of a home where they can be happy, healthy and well cared for!

What do we want to do? Visit our Chicken Appeal page to find out more.

Charlie Dog Run

Dog Run Opening!

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us in creating this special space for some amazing dogs. Time off-lead is absolutely vital for a dog’s physical and mental health, and important bonding time for you together. With around one in four households thought to have a dog, there are thousands of owners struggling to find a safe space to enjoy this time together, and many may not be walked at all. So, we are so happy to now have this secure, safe space that your dogs can enjoy here and a small “sanctuary” of their own to enjoy.

The principal is simple – book the run online. Then come down and have some fun at the sanctuary with the whole paddock all to yourself for as long as you choose. Booking slots run every 30 minutes, but you are welcome to book as many as you like if you would like to stay longer with your waggy friends!

Every time you book our run you are not only treating your dog but our animals too, as all funds raised from the run will go towards caring for our rescued animals at the sanctuary, as well as making our run even better for you in the future!
