Who We Are
Our shelter is based at Sunnyside Cottage, Mortimer’s Lane, Fair Oak, Eastleigh in Hampshire. We care for, rehabilitate and re home numerous domestic animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, caged birds, various small mammals and reptiles.
We are a small shelter with only four full time and one part time member of staff. Some of our animals were unclaimed strays, others were handed over by their owners who were unable to care for them any longer for a variety of reasons.
Rehome a Pet
Our animals are well looked after and given lots of care. View all our animals currently for adoption.
The Staff and Volunteers always love to hear how ex St Francis animals are getting on in their new homes. Would you like to share your story? Please email our shelter manager- Helen Kerris Shaw.
At St. Francis Animal Welfare, we have several resident animals, whom we give lots of extra love and care. View some of our current residents here.
