  • Excellent rescue centre with great staff and only place I'd go to home a rescue dog. Can't believe how much it has grown over the years  more »
  • Everyone is completely rude no one smiled. I will never ever look to adopt a dog or bring my family down there again. Worst experience. Next time I’m going to faith for adoptions much better reviews a...  more »
  • One of the nicest places we have been to that totally care for their animals. I was overwhelmed by the attention to detail that these people give to all their animals. Walking round you can clearly se...  more »

  • "HILLSIDE ANIMAL SANCTUARY".....Recently featured on the famous B.B.C. COUNTRY FILE T.V. series, on a rescue of COWS, many of which were pregnant.....The staff and vets at "HILLSIDE ANIMAL SANCTUARY" have also rescued a Penn, Mute Swan with a badly infected wing, though sadly part of the wing had to be amputated, with the Cob Mute Swan being reunited with his life time mate at " HILLSIDE" and they have been named as "ROMEO and JULIET"....Even a Labrador has arrived at " HILLSIDE", carrying a newly born, lost "FAWN", which the staff have named as "TINSEL" and is doing well......."AMAZING ANIMALS"......With over 20 years of animal welfare experience behind them, the legendary, "MARTIN SHAW" as their honorable patron, it is well worth taking a look at the "HILLSIDE ANIMAL SANCTUARY" web site. (You can also visit the "HILLSIDE SHIRE HORSE SANCTUARY WEBSITE", which is a few miles away)...On both websites you will find out how to help all of the animals over during the course of the year, purchase lovely "HILLSIDE" stylized gifts, at reasonable prices, for you, your family and many friend's, where ever they live......The qualified staff here are regularly called upon to investigate "issues" concerning the poor welfare and cruelty to animals, domesticated and wild, with some of their "necessary investigative video" documenting some of the awful conditions that some animals exist, suffer, endure.....What would we do without "HILLSIDE ANIMAL SANCTUARY"....."A GREAT PLACE FOR ALL ANIMALS....OVER 2,700 ANIMALS....Horses - Goats - Pigs - Donkeys -Wild Deer - Chickens - Mute Swans....What can you do to help them?..."THANKS HILLSIDE"...
  • This site is not open! This is very misleading on Google maps and on Hillside's website. Don't waste you time and petrol.
  • Good open day. They really need to organise the parking better next year with an entrance and exit rather than 2 directions of traffic coming in the same single car width gate.
  • Fantastic place, this sanctuary does so much for all the rescued animals. What a lovely place
  • Drove 2 and half hours to come here, website and sign on gate state open daily to then be told they're shut on Saturdays and we can't go round but come back tomorrow!! Unhelpful staff and unfriendly
