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

homes. As we're small, please contact us with a specific pet in mind.
Animal Rescue near you
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 thrive in positive social environments. We create the best possible experience to help
animals recover from abuse,
trauma and neglect.
We welcome applications from adopters. Every application is assessed on the home environment and the needs of the animal.
Animals in our care receive
veterinary health checks,
are spayed, neutered and
microchipped. We care for
disabled, and older animals.
SPECIAL APPEALS AND UPDATES
Surgery for Nelly
Eight-month-old Nelly needs surgery for hip dysplasia. We're fundraising for her hip replacement surgery. Helping Nelly get this vital surgery is part of our ongoing appeal.
Visit or follow @OurSaintNelly on Twitter for details.
Kennel fees for Humphrey
Humphrey is an emergency rescue as his adopter changed their mind and Humphrey was headed back to Romania. He is safe now but we're pushed to pay kennel fees. Please donate if you can.
Update on Honey
We've been sorry to share that Honey's condition has changed and we are now giving her the best possible life while she is with us and can enjoy the things she loves most. Unfortunately, it seems that Honey has a pancreatic tumour. Her body is producing too much insulin and so her glucose levels are too low. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us to support our work with Honey/
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.
