Unfortunately, it has become increasingly difficult to adhere to government advice on social distancing and sanitising with so many people on site and therefore, in the interest of keeping our staff and the public safe, we have made the decision to run by appointment ONLY.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an online form on our “Apply to Adopt” page and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
Please bare in mind that we are short staffed and receiving a very high number of forms. Therefore, if you have applied for a specific animal and don’t hear from us then please assume you have been unsuccessful. 
Also, if you have filled out a form with no specific animal and don’t hear from us, this means we don’t have anything suitable right now and we will try our best to let you know when we do.

As for volunteers, we are still unsure when we will be able to have them on site so we will be sure to update you when we have more information.

Although we are able to thankfully carry on getting our animals safely into their new homes, we are still unable to perform any fundraising activities. This is going to be an incredibly difficult time financially, so if you can afford to, please kindly donate by clicking ‘donate’ at the bottom of this page. No matter how large or small, we need our supporters at this time!

Thank you for your continued support,

From all at Hillfield Animal Home

Your local animal home. We are a separate charity operating under RSPCA rules, our work is invaluable to the lives of the many animals that have suffered from cruelty or neglect. We are responsible for raising our operating funds locally.

We are an independently funded animal re-homing centre that depends on generous donations and fund-raising activities. It costs over £5,000 per week to finance our animal home. The money we raise is used to support animal welfare and re-homing within our district and animal home.

On average, over 500 animals are re-homed from this centre each year.

With the aid of the national society’s local inspectors, the branch services a wide area including Ashby, Measham, Netherseal, Packington, Swadlincote, Melbourne, Ticknall, Winshill, Uttoxeter, Stapenhill, Tamworth, Lichfield, Rugeley and all the villages in between!
