Animal Sanctuary & Wildlife Rescue Derbyshire
The Pet Samaritans Animal Sanctuary and Wildlife Rescue Center in Chesterfield, Derbyshire is home to abandoned, orphaned, injured and unwanted pets, dog, cats, horses, ponies, small animals and wildlife. We provide Pet adoptions to give every pet a chance at a happy life in a loving home.
Our wildlife rescue center operates throughout the year and helps rehabilitate injured wildlife, birds and hedgehogs brought into the Animal Sanctuary.
Through campaigning, education and local communities, we strive to give animals a voice and the right to happy lives.
We provide an emergency pet care service with lifetime care for pets whose owners are terminally ill and we give priority to pets who are bereaved or whose owners have had to go into hospital or a care home.
We operate all year round throughout Derbyshire and across the UK. Our visitor opening times are Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 3.30pm.
No healthy pet is ever put to sleep. Many of our rescued animals are unsuitable for rehoming after all they have been through. Safe at Last, they stay with us for life.
