About us!

We are Beneath the wood rescue sanctuary. We are a small sanctuary based in Wales. We have provided permanent sanctuary space for dogs with behaviour issues, sheep, cats and horses.

Our resident dogs are not able to be homed or would be difficult to home due to behaviour issues. They have come to us from other rescues or from vets. Our cats and farm animals have come from local farmers or people in the local community. We only have limited space, but we do what we can with what we have. Most of the animals that come to us will stay here for life as a safe haven.

We work with the animals in a positive way to help them overcome any problems. Helping to build their confidence so they can enjoy life!

We also spend time campaigning for a cruelty free world. We are a strictly no kill sanctuary. Registered Not for Profit – 11416282
