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.

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!
Dog Run Opening!
After such a successful trial weekend (thank you!) we're so happy to announce that we are now opening our Secure Dog Run all week. We have taken all of your wonderful feedback on board and will be acting upon this over the next few weeks to make it an even better experience for you and your dogs. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the run please feel free to get in touch!
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…
When we heard about this little goat with a clock ticking against him, we just had to try to help him, and we are so happy to tell you that thanks to the help of our Goat Guardians who supported our appeal, we were able to step in and save Ollie from being put to sleep!
He is currently in a separate paddock from our other goats as all of our animals undergo a quarantine period when they come in which gives us chance to monitor their health and make sure he can’t pass anything on to our goats or vice-versa. You also raised the funds needed to pay for his first vet check, all of his preventative treatments, as well as food and treats to spoil him with while he’s on his own - don’t worry, he’ll get to join his new goat family as soon as all of the necessary checks have been completed, and you should be able to come and see him very soon. Stay tuned for updates!
Animal Transport Trailer Appeal
Thank you to Lillie at Moo Dog Training for very kindly setting up a fundraiser to raise the funds needed to purchase an animal transport trailer! It may not be something you have thought about but transporting animals can be quite difficult - as you can imagine, goats and pigs don’t fit in the back of a car and there are strict laws about the way that these animals should be transported. As we don't have our own trailer, we are frequently unable to help animals in need as we simply cannot get them here ourselves.
Our own animal transport trailer would enable us to rescue more animals, and help us to care for our own as we would be able to pick up bulkier donations that we are sometimes offered and unable to transport - such as bales of hay and straw. This would also enable us to transport our animals to specialist vets when they are unable to bring their equipment to us - such as when Daisy the pig had to go to Liverpool vet university for a procedure that could not have been carried out here at the sanctuary!
Thank you for your help.
Help us to help animals in need.
We are not government/council funded and rely entirely on the kindness and generosity of people like YOU. There are so many ways that you can help us, from making a donation, visiting us and learning more about our work, to sponsoring an animal, volunteering your time, or just telling others about us!
