Who we are
We are a family-run animal rescue charity based in Horsham, West Sussex.
Founded nearly 30 years ago, Holbrook Animal Rescue was set up to help abandoned and unwanted animals to find a safe place to call home. 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.
Viewing is by appointment only.
Registered Charity No - 1181456
Adopt a dog
We have some lovely dogs at Holbrook, looking for a loving home. Please ensure you read their profiles carefully before applying.
Note that all viewings are by appointment only. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill out the application form and one of our rehoming volunteers will be in touch.
Please avoid phoning regarding adoptions unless there is an emergency.
Sanctuary and Rehabilitation
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.
Help us to Rebuild our Rescue
We will need to relocate imminently to make way for a major new housing development. Build has already commenced for the 2,700-home development to the north of Horsham 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. In order to continue our essential rehoming work, we need your help to raise the funds to build a new rescue centre.
