Idlewild Animal Sanctuary

Idlewild Animal Sanctuary

Idlewild Animal Sanctuary is a registered charity (#1163184) that provides care to a variety of animals providing Rescue, Rehabilitation, Release and Rehoming. We provide a safe haven for abandoned and unwanted animals at our Sanctuary in the Conwy Valley.

Animal Care

Our charity status was obtained in August 2015 and, through this rigorous process, we have demonstrated our commitment to ensure all animals in our care receive the highest level of care, attention and support to lead happy, healthy lives.

Please Donate.

Please help us save an animal in need today! As a registered charity we rely on fundraising and donations to be able to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in need. We now have over 230 rescue animals here at Idlewild Animal Sanctuary, many who require life-long medication and care. Thanks to supporters like you we’ve been able to adapt our services and keep them running. Your generosity has meant that we can continue to rescue animals in need. 

You can also gift-aid your donation, (this will boost your donation by 25% at no cost to you).

With a monthly donation you can save animals lives. You can also donate a one-off donation, Weekly, Monthly or annually. Every donation is greatly appreciated, and we can only continue the work we do with your help. 

Thank you.


We are looking for people to fundraise for Idlewild Animal Sanctuary. Do you have a flair for baking, crocheting, sports or quizzes?


We have new cats looking for a new home

They will all be neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We have some cats that will be happy indoors and outdoors and some that will be house cats only. The last day for collection is 30th November as then the rehoming is closed from the 1st December to 14th January. This is to prevent animals being given for Christmas presents as this goes against our ethos.


We have several Idlewild residents that are looking for a sponsor. Give the gift of support – with your help you can ensure that your resident has the enrichment and food they need. By sponsoring one of our animals, you will be helping with their care directly. We use every penny of your adoption donation for the care of our animals. As a registered charity we fully rely on donations for all areas of our work including rescuing animals, rehabilitating and educating about animals.Many of the Idlewild residents need life long care and with your sponsorship they can live a happy comfortable life at the Idlewild Animal Sanctuary.


The Idlewild Animal Sanctuary is run by our dedicated Sanctuary Manger Kim. We also have a team of volunteers that volunteer here at the Sanctuary. If you are interested in volunteering, please get in touch.

Amazon Wishlist.
