We are currently in the process of building a new website, for now we have put some of the more useful information on this page.


Please visit our Facebook page for news and to see the animals we currently have in our care.


Thornberry has been caring for neglected and abandoned animals since 1988 with your help. Currently, our vet bills alone are approximately £9,000 per month. We'd never let any animal suffer, and we're sure you wouldn't either.

You can help us in several ways.

Donate online via Virgin money giving

Text using "Just Text Giving" by texting VETS19 followed by £1, £2, £5 or £10 to 70070

Kindly donate something from our amazon wishlist

Or, bring your donation directly into the sanctuary. We're always in need of the following items


Thornberry's Halloween Spooktacular! - Saturday 29th October - 11am to 5:30pm
