The New Hope Animal Rescue 


New Hope Animal Rescue is an independent, non-destruct animal rescue & Sanctuary. We are dedicated to helping animals facing euthanasia, in immediate danger & those with either medical needs or behavioural problems that make them difficult to place. We aim to help as many animals and in particular those that have been turned away elsewhere.

We occasionally rehome animals that we consider rehomeable.
We work alongside a vast pool of other rescues. New Hope has no paid staff, we are always in need of donations to cover a vast array of expenses.
