Help Us

Home / Help Us

Pet Samaritans is solely financed by funds generously donated by the public. Supporters of our Animal Sanctuary and Wildlife Rescue service help us to feed, care and treat rescued animals that arrive on a daily basis. We are one of Derbyshire’s busiest Wildlife centres opening seven days a week to provide assistance and advice when needed. An important source of funding is through our website where you can pledge a donation through our online donation pages.

You can also help support our mission and help the animals through our Amazon Wishlist and Easy Fund Raising pages.

Become a Wildlife Angel

When St Bernards animal sanctuary was first founded 25 years ago, many people pledged support as a friend to the animals and have continued to follow our journey from the early days. If you would like to show your support for our work, you can now join us with a Wildlife Angels membership and become a friend of the Sanctuary. We’ll send you out our Wildlife Angels enamel pin along with a membership card as our thanks.

A legacy for the animals

Fidlin Racehorse Rehomed
We help all creatures great and small. Fidlin came to us in a poor state. We reunited him with his original owners.

We’ve help thousands of dogs, cats, horses, wildlife, hedgehogs and farm animals over the years and provide the very best of care, love and affection. We never know what’s going to come in next but do our very best to help all of them. We have access to organic meadows for our larger friends and golden oldies can stay with us for the rest of their lives and become part of Sanctuary life with a home from home environment.
