Stef's is a volunteer-run rescue and sanctuary. We enrich the lives of animals by  fostering, rehabilitation and rehoming.

Animal Rescue near you

We welcome applications from adopters. Every application is assessed on the home environment and the needs of the animal. 
We foster throughout the
north and northeast and will try to place animals locally. Animals are assessed so they fit in with your home environment as well as possible.
Animals in our care receive
veterinary health checks,
vaccinations, and
are spayed, neutered and
microchipped. We care for
disabled, and older animals.
Animals thrive in positive social environments. We create the best possible experience to help
animals recover from abuse,
trauma and neglect.



Winter Appeal





Stef's rescues and provides sanctuary for animals in need of safe and secure environments. We  support owners who may need to give up their pets for any number of reasons.


We can't take in every animal so will work to find suitable long-term foster care.  We always carry out home checks and thoroughly assess applicants who would like to foster or adopt a pet.

If you're interested in becoming one of our  fosterers, book a pre-screen call. We can tell you more about us and how you can help.


If you're ready to adopt, we can talk you through the process and the challenges and rewards of being a new adopter. Experienced adopters are always welcome to apply. Find out how to apply.

Volunteer Applications Closed for the Time Being

We're currently closed for new volunteer applications. We're grateful for the generous response. Please follow us on Twitter and FaceBook for updates about the rescue. Thank you for your interest and offers of help.
