Welcome to The Animal House Rescue


This is the week of appeals im afraid as we are really struggling to accomodate two seperate older dogs who are already in our care and under intensive medical treatment so need to be relatively local or be prepared to travel to our vets in Smethwick.

1/ Large breed who is fine with medium to large breed dogs but no small dogs or cats.

2/ Small/Medium breed possibly fine with calm dogs.

Both dogs need a quiet calm environment and fosterers who are confident with medication and vet treatment.
Please complete the foster application below if you think you can help as we are really desperate to get these girls sorted.

The Animal House Rescue doesnt have a rescue centre, instead of using kennelling facilities we have a network of local foster carers.  Our foster carers open up their hearts and homes to animals, that are homeless through no fault of their own.  Without our foster homes we would not be able to help as many animals that we do. 

Foster carers are an important part of our rescue network and we are forever greatful for their help.  If you feel this is something for you, please click on the button to complete our application form.

03.09.18 Coco the very lucky one!

This last week one of our foster homes had a knock at her door. When she opened it a woman was there and she was obviously drunk. She asked for help with a cat she said had been visiting her for three weeks in her garden and that she was feeding it and the cat was heavily pregnant. Apparantly she had been taking it in to feed her and the landlord had spotted it and told her if she didnt get rid he would poison it. Our foster home decided this cat needed help and so she went round. The cat was lying on the daughters lap and our foster mum asked if she could be put on the floor to see just how pregnant she was. The woman asked if she knew how many she was going to have and although huge our foster mum said it was difficult to tell so the woman starts telling her that her first litter she had one, the second she had three and the third four..... and she's only been seeing her for three weeks (something didn't add up here). Whether it was really her cat or not this baby girl needed help and so we took her in. Late on Friday night she went into labour, the first kitten came but the placenta was stuck, with a bit of manoevering she passed it, the second kitten was the same, the third mum chewed through the cord before the placenta came. We gave her a little time to pass it but she didn't so off to the vets she went. The vets said something wasn't right so xrayed her and found three kittens still inside but could find no heartbeats. Sadly even with the vets working on the kittens who were delivered by caesarean these little ones didn't make it 

Thank God we took her in, even when we have no room our foster mum still squeezed her in, if she had stayed with the woman she and her babies wouldn't have survived as the remaining placentas and kittens would have rotted inside causing massive infection killing mum too.
This is mum (Coco) and the surviving kittens, shes a stunner.
A big thank you to our foster mum Lou for being there for Coco and her babies and making sure she got the treatment she needed.
We are a small Birmingham based rescue, which takes in unwanted, abused and abandoned animals. All the animals that come into our care are treated for fleas, ticks, mites and worms, they also have a full veterinary 'm.o.t', and are neutered, if over 6 months, and inoculated before going to their new homes.   We do not use kennels, instead we have foster homes, which enable us to see the animals behaviour in a home environment, then any problems can be dealt with and we can re-home them to the most appropriate place. All prospective adopters will be home-checked. If you live outside the Birmingham area and would like to adopt a dog, we will need a veterinary reference and copies of two recent household bills. Please check with any rental agreements or Landlords to make sure that pets are allowed in your home.
All dogs are kept at foster homes and the adverts will show the contact name and number for that home. Please contact them in the first instance as they will be able to advise you better.  We also run a feral cat-neutering program, where feral cats are trapped and the females are spayed and the males are castrated. The cats are then released back to where they came from, as hardly any feral cats become tame. Those that do are re-homed. This helps to cut down on the number of kittens born each year, which will in turn keep the colony going.  All our work is done with the aid of donations, and street collections with all money collected going to pay for food and our massive veterinary bills. If you can help us in any way either by donations of money, blankets/duvets or food, please contact us. Also needed are volunteers to help on street collections, veterinary runs with animals (car required) and picking up food from various collection points around the Birmingham.
