Dog walking

Walking our dogs at our The Mill House farm is available for 365 days a year. We're open from 10 a.m. until a 3 p.m. curfew, and respectfully ask that you pop something in our donation bucket to help us continue our work. We rely solely on public donations and fees for re-homing dogs, cats, ponies, horses, and rabbits. Thank you.

Little did the 6 year-old Wright twins, Pat and Jane, realise when they rescued a pony called Daisy from the slaughter house in 1948, that their love of animals would evolve into

The Mill House Animal Sanctuary, which subsequently became a registered charity in 1982 and now rescues animals from all over the UK.

Come and visit us, the Mill House farm is open for visitors 365 days a year from 10 until 3 p.m



We are the Mill House Animal Sanctuary, based in Sheffield and Thurlstone, and we are really struggling to be able to carry on, but cannot turn our backs on animals in need. We have a ‘No Destruction’ policy and never put a healthy animal to sleep. Our present concern is the number of animals which are abandoned – mainly young colt foals who have very little or no value. It is costly to keep these animals and they need gelding as they grow into adulthood. It is a constant struggle to keep pace with this never-ending situation and we desperately need your help.

At present, we have in our care a young Welsh cob called Iolo who urgently needs an operation on his eye to treat a tumour. Iolo has been with us for three years. He has already had one lot of treatment for this tumour, but it was unsuccessful and he now needs more radical treatment. Iolo is a very happy fellow and we don’t feel that we can give up on him.

This is our Christmas appeal: - please help us give Iolo the treatment he needs and also to help feed and look after all the animals in our care. We are not a wealthy charity and constantly struggle to keep going. Please help us to carry on taking care of these animals. We have cows, goats, sheep and pigs, as well as dogs, cats and other small animals.

The winter has only just taken hold and we desperately need your help to continue with the constant care of all our animals.

We have light - hurray!

New electrics for the main stable block.

A huge "THANK YOU" to David of the Debs Foundation for donating the money to enable us to replace our stable block electricity. We have been working on battery power for some time unable to afford to re-wire. So not only have our horses, ponies, sheep, and goats got light when needed at last, our volunteers can brew-up in their ex-railway shed without traipsing in and out of the Mill House!
