ARC takes in many animals, most are for adoption, but also sadly we sometimes have animals that are not possible to rehome or require ongoing medical care. In these, thankfully quite rare cases, we continue to support these animals to live in permanent foster homes in line with our values

We passionately believe that every animal is entitled to be loved and cared for and live a healthy and happy life

We believe that euthanasia is only ever an option when an animal has a poor quality of life or if they are a potential threat to other animals or humans.

This page will showcase the sanctuary animals currently in our care and share their stories. From time to time we fundraise specifically to cover their medical bills as this can be quite a burden despite the vet discounts we already are fortunate to receive.

If you would like to support our  Sanctuary animals, please visit our Donations page Thank you!

Albus & Remus

Albus and Remus have been with ARC since late 2016. They were handed in to be rehomed before their 1st birthday.

His foster mum has attempted everything, even trying reiki by [ more]



Molly is owned by an elderly lady in Northolt. She has renal problems and a history of weeing out of her litter tray so ARC support Molly's renal food and the occasional visit to the vet.



Meet Dizzee, a 4yr old guinea pig who has ongoing respiratory issues and suffers impaction (like many older male piggies). He is the sweetest boy and is well able to demand his food and make his presence known, also rather partial to trotting around on the floor!


Blue & Logan

Logan and Blue are two sweeties that have found their perfect home which is supported by ARC due to Logan's health condition. They love snuggling together and sit waiting for treats. Blue was very nervous when she first came but has come out of her shell and loves coming out and [ more]
