We are The Birkett~Smith Animal Sanctuary and we are a rarity in the UK as we are the largest sanctuary to take in both human and dog aggressive dogs and rehabilitate them.
We are one of the the very few UK sanctuaries that will take aggressive and fear aggressive dogs and we rehabilitate these animals as much as we can over time to enable them to enjoy their forever home here with us or to go back out into the world with new skills.
We provide forever homes for just over 100 dogs, a few cats and some farm animals including sheep, horses, geese and chickens.
As well as giving sanctuary and rehab to our own dogs we offer unique short to medium term rehabilitation spaces for UK rescues and privately owned dogs who are seeking a place of safety and rehab for behaviourally affected dogs who are suffering with various issues whether these be human, environment or animal directed.
We are unique in a number of ways, not least of which is the fact we are a farm sanctuary and we have sheep, ducks, geese, chickens, a goat and horses.
All of these animals are involved in rehabilitating the dogs that come through our rehab centre and are used to helping out. Our permanent sanctuary dogs get to play their part also by acting as stooges, walking partners, calming influences etc.
We give them all jobs to do and keep them busy with an enriched day and it's fabulously fun and the kids who live here, whether permanently or temporarily don't miss out on anything including buckets of love and plenty of playtime.
