Welcome to

Grinshill Animal Rescue

We are a small, family run rescue centre situated in the picturesque village of Grinshill - 8 miles north of Shrewsbury (off the A49 Whitchurch road).

Our house and kennels nestle into the base of Grinshill hill and we are surrounded by woods and fields - haven for cats and dogs alike. We started rescuing  approximately 35 years ago, taking in stray, abused animals and generally helping people when they could no longer look after their animals for one reason or another. No matter how much space is made  there is never enough room - we always have waiting lists for dogs & cats to be re-homed. Our aim is to rehabilitate and re-home all animals to suitable, caring homes. 

All homes are checked before and after re-homing. All dogs and cats are vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. As we are only small our animals all have individual love and attention and we never put a healthy animal down. We also offer sanctuary to those dogs and cats with severe trust issues, giving them a secure home where they can feel safe, and more importantly loved. We are limited to what we can do by the strength of our resources, both financial and human. We are short in both areas and are appealing for help. We need more people to help raise funds and carry out other voluntary tasks, such as 'dog walking', if you can spare a little of your time then your help would be most welcome.

With limited access to the current animal center we need all the help we can get to reach our target goal of £1million in order to relocate Grinshill  animal Center.

Grinshill Just Giving Donate

This year has been hard for us all but we would love a great Christmas for our dogs and cats. We have some amazing supporters that love to treat our residents but we are going to have to do things a little different this year. Due to covid we will have to quarantine all donations but we only have limited space. So this year we are asking if anyone would like to donate towards a Christmas dinner and toy for all our dogs and cats.

Every penny really does count. Thank you for your support

Meet our new girl Lizzy who we have just picked up. Sadly she is in a pretty awful state. She was taken in to the vets to be put to sleep however the vets asked us if we could help and was signed over to us. Our vets will be seeing her tomorrow and hopefully start her recovery. She is not up for adoption as yet but will keep you all updated.


I thought you would all like to see how our beautiful LIzzy is getting on.

As I hope you can see Lizzy's skin and coat has improved over short couple of weeks we have had her in our care. She has had a course of antibiotics, been bathed 3 times a week and started her injections for allergy relief medication. This injection has to done every month for the rest of her life, after looking in to her history this was the only thing that worked after many tests. This does come at a cost at £138.88 a month We have had so many enquiries about this gorgeous girl so I am sorry we have closed applications until we have gone through them all after lockdown has been lifted. If could spare anything towards her vets bill now and going forward we would be very grateful.
