As of 4pm on 23rd March 2020, Hillfield Animal Home will officially close to the public and volunteers during these testing times.
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 close.
Closing to the public will free up enough staff to socialise and exercise all of the animals adequately whilst maintaining public safety. We will also cease all intake and adoptions for as long as we are advised to.
In order to keep our animals safe, we need healthy staff. So we hope everyone can understand that our decision is what is best for the public, our staff, volunteers and the animals. However, because we can no longer 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 continuing support and we hope to see you again when the world returns to normal.
From all at Hillfield Animal Home
We are an independently funded animal re-homing centre that depends on generous donations and fund-raising activities. We receive no state or lottery aid. 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!
