About Us | Lizzie's Barn Sanctuary

About Us

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, while others like those listed on our dogs needing homes page are ready to go to new homes.

Much of our work is with abandoned 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.

As we are a small, family-run rescue without any paid staff, we are unable to invite visitors to the sanctuary prior to vetting & without an appointment. Please contact us by email in the first instance.

While we try to keep these pages as up to date as possible, please remember that our primary focus is on the dogs, they arrive and are re-homed on a regular basis.

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.
