SESAW is an independent charity, dedicated to caring for any abandoned, sick or injured animal, domestic or wild.  All need veterinary care, some need time to settle or recover from bad experiences before being assessed.

Regular volunteers devote time and TLC to look after new arrivals until they are ready to be re-homed or returned to their natural environment. If this is not possible due to health, age or behavioural problems, the animal remains at SESAW permanently or lives in a foster home and some of these animals are available for Sponsorship.  SESAW also promotes responsible ownership of animals, including the often neglected issue of neutering. Without the generosity of the public, none of this would be possible.

Could you:
  • Offer a safe, loving home to a new pet?
  • Help feeding, grooming, cleaning, walking and socialising the animals?
  • Join our DIY team around the gardens and buildings?
  • Provide knowledgeable foster care?
  • Organise or take part in fundraising events?
  • Help behind the scenes to set up event venues, put up posters, and dismantling after events?
