Who We Are

We are a family-run charity based in Horsham, West Sussex. 


Founded around 26 years ago, Holbrook Animal Rescue was set up to help abandoned dogs and cats. We take in many different types of animal from different backgrounds. Unlike many other rescues our dogs aren't kept in kennels. They sleep in the house and are free to run and play in our garden and fields.

Have a look at our new video to see some of the animals we're currently helping.


Sanctuary animals are those that were considered ‘last chance’ this could be due to medical or behavioural issues that deemed them not fit for rehoming.

Rehabilitation dogs are those that we work with to restore their health or address behavioural issues through therapy and training, to teach them to trust again and to become the best that they can.


Our Future


Please help us 

Our future is in the balance. Holbrook Animal Rescue will need to relocate in the next few years to make way for a major new housing development. Build has already commenced for the 2,700-home development to the north of Horsham, West Sussex, and the search for a new location is underway. 

One of only two ‘kennel-free’ animal rescues in the UK, Holbrook Animal Rescue is run by Laura and Cliff Santini alongside a group of dedicated volunteers. However, the charity does not own the land on which the rescue is built. Land in West Sussex is notoriously expensive, and in order to continue our essential rehoming work, we are calling upon the community in and around Horsham to help us to raise the funds to help build a new rescue centre.
