Welcome to our website


Online Auction

We are organising an online auction to raise money for the shelter.
It costs us just over £3000 a week to run Happy Landings and to do this we rely on fundraising events.

The auction will take place in November/early December. If you have any items that you think could go towards making up a hamper then please let us know.

Also if you have a skill or business and can help by donating an auction lot we would be extremely grateful.
Examples include a boiler service, dog walking, a handmade or personalised item if you run your own business making products, cooking a meal if you are a chef, pet portrait, etc. Maybe you own a pub or restaurant and can provide a meal voucher. A holiday or weekend away. Or any other ideas you can put forward.

Please get in touch with Jo jo.happylandings@gmail.com

We thank each and every one of you for your ongoing support, and thank you for the items pledged so far.

Do look out for further updates on our auction and how you can bid. Great for Christmas presents.


Happy Landings is first and foremost an animal shelter. We have a council licensed boarding facility for dogs and cats which helps to pay for the welfare work.

The boarding section is very much in demand and spaces are booked very early. We no longer board rabbits, guinea pigs etc.

The charity owns the 5 acre site, and is a mixed animal shelter, taking in all types of animals. We are unable to take exotics.

The centre can take approximately 300 domestic and farm animals, and we re-home about 300 animals a year plus several hundred ex battery hens. The team of staff and volunteers offer shelter and hope.

Happy Landings works with Dog wardens, Vets, Police, Social Services and other shelters. We are full at all times and have to work on a waiting list system with the demand for rescue spaces being very high.

Many animals have to be nursed back to health and more have to be re-habilitated before carefully chosen, loving homes are found. We pride ourselves on our match-making ability and it is rare that an animal has to be returned to us.
