At Lizzie’s Barn we have a specially converted barn, which we use in preference to kennels, surrounded by 10 acres for exercise. Some of our dogs will stay with us forever due to old age or ill-health. We provide them with comfort, company and security for the rest of their lives. Some will be found homes as and when they are ready.
Much of our work is with abandoned abused and neglected dogs, and with puppies rejected by other organisations. The sanctuary is able to offer them the rich social experience, mixing with people and other dogs which is essential for their development. We find homes both locally and in other parts of the UK as this enables us to increase the number we can help. However to do this we need increased support. To ensure our dogs go to loving owners, all new homes must be vetted and/or references may also be required.
We are a small, family-run rescue without any paid staff, providing safety and sanctuary to dogs who have been to hell and back, having strangers around is stressful and unsettling for them, so we are unable to invite visitors to the sanctuary prior to vetting & without an appointment.
All of our dogs for adoption will have been neutered if old enough, and deemed fit enough, by our vet and come with four weeks free insurance cover. We ask for a set donation on adoption towards our many costs which enables us to continue our work and to help other dogs. Full lifetime support and back up is provided for every dog. They must be returned to Lizzie’s Barn at any time should the new owner be unable to care for them, and an undertaking by the owner to do so forms part of our adoption agreement.
