The Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary admits & rehomes over 500 animals every year. We provide a refuge for animals who have been mistreated, neglected & abandoned.
The Animal Sanctuary exists to provide a refuge for dogs, cats rabbits and guinea pigs who have been mistreated, neglected or abandoned and for those whose owners are no longer able to care for their pets.
The Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary admits & rehomes over 500 animals every year. Since opening in 1967, we have proudly managed to help over 25,000 animals find their forever home.
At any one time, we have around 60 dogs, 90 cats and kittens plus a number of rabbits and guinea pigs. We also care for our permanent guests of goats, a horse and a little Shetland pony.
We were founded to be inclusive, understanding and a place where any animal was welcome.
Many of our animals come to us from difficult backgrounds. Some arrive with acute behavioural needs and some have immediate medical needs. We deal with each case individually and start by earning their trust and understanding their needs.
We hold our ’non-destruction policy’ as a core principle for our work. This means that we will never put a healthy animal down and work to find each one a forever home.
Where this is not possible, due to behavioral issues for example, OAS is their home and our staff and volunteers give them as close to a pet’s life as possible. They are our sponsor animals.
