Our Story

The Snowdonia Animal Sanctuary was incorporated as a registered non-profit making organisation in July 2010. Previous to that, we had been taking in dogs for re-homing since 2002. However, the number of requests for re-homing and rehabilitation work dramatically increased, resulting in a massive drain on Anne's financial resources.

The sanctuary is run from a licensed boarding kennels. Initially, the profits from the kennels covered the upkeep of the few dogs in rehome and rehabilitation, but now we rely on donations to cover the cost of food, care and treatment. Anne is also aware that without the support of her dedicated and loyal team of volunteers, none of this work would be possible.

Anne has had great success with rehabilitating dogs who have been emotionally shattered and seriously physically abused or neglected. Some of the most severe cases, as well as a few who are too old or disabled to re-home, have remained with Anne as resident dogs.

Anne and her volunteers work tirelessly to exercise, train, socialise and rehabilitate all the dogs several times each day. However, a constant stream of donations and people willing to re-home these dogs, instead of buying directly from breeders, is critical for the continuing care, welfare, rehabilitation and re-homing of the animals in our care.
