About

Brinsley Animal Rescue was founded by Jon Beresford and partner Bethan Hewis who met in 2001 and share a passion for animals. They started by volunteering for the animal charities and soon found thier home in West Bridgford full of rescued pets and wild animals. They eventually decided to move when almost every room had a rabbit, a wild bird or a hedgehog in it.

In 2007 they bought a 4 acre property in Brinsley Nottingham whand expanded to take on farm animals as well as pets and wild animals and we continue to expand as the funds allow.

Brinsley Animal Rescue is a Registered Charity run for animals by volunteers. The Charity is run on vegan values, therefore we do not believe in exploiting animals for food, profit or entertainment.

We have no paid staff and our premises, land, buildings, utilities and fuel are donated by us to the Charity free of charge. Therefore all of the money raised for the Charity goes directly into helping animals by paying for food, bedding, treatment and vets bills. We take no money out of the Charity for expenses, wages or rent.  We need to raise £150,000 every year to pay the Charity bills.

We rescue pets, wild animals and farm animals, our aim is to rehome pets and farm animals and release wild animals back into the wild. Where we cannot rehome pets and farm animals, we provide them with permanent sanctuary.
