About Us

Commitment to Care

Mid Antrim Animal Sanctuary has been in existence since 1996 and we concentrate our work on animal re-homing, education and relieving the distress and suffering of unwanted animals.

We are proud to operate a no kill policy, in line with both our animals welfare and well being, and year on year find new forever homes for approximately 650 cats and dogs which have been saved from possible destruction. Prior to re-homing, and on the successful completion of a home check, all animals are vaccinated, neutered, wormed, de-flead and micro-chipped. Our adoption scheme ensures that measures are in place that if any of our animals encounter any difficulties in their new home then they can be returned to the safe haven of Sanctuary.

With a no kill policy in place a number of animals, for a number of reasons, find it more difficult to find a place to call home; in these instance’s we offer shelter for life here at our premises.

Whether at the Sanctuary or as one of our adopted dogs or cats, we ensure ALL have the right to the five freedoms:

  • Freedom from hunger or thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease
  • Freedom to express normal behaviours
  • Freedom from fear and distress

Some of our animals may, due to their previous experiences, have physical or behavioural issues that make them less likely to find their forever home; on these occasions the Sanctuary provides long term fostering opportunities for these animals.

Socialisation and enrichment activities are very much part of everyday life for our dogs and cats and we guarantee that each animal in our care has something positive in the daily routine.
