Animal Lifeline is a voluntary group and a registered charity – details at foot of this page – founded more than 41 years ago and is based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. Its purpose is to save abandoned and unwanted dogs and puppies and find them new homes and loving owners.
Animal Lifeline’s Serendipity Kennels were built in 2001 following a significant bequest to the charity from Douglas Hodges. The kennels – which house up to 100 dogs – are adjacent to the live-in manager’s house and open out in to large fenced paddocks where the dogs can walk and run-free for exercise and fresh air..
Opening Times: Non-appointment viewings 10.00am – 10.30am, 12.00 noon – 12.30pm and 2.45pm – 3.45pm, 365 days a year except on Christmas Day and Boxing Day when the kennels are closed in the afternoon,
Viewing at other times by prior arrangement with the kennel manager Steve Woodward on 07925 585358.
Each year the charity rescues and re-homes around 300 dogs and puppies and has saved more than 11,000 over the years . It always has at least 100 dogs in its Serendipity Kennels, awaiting re-homing. It never has any dogs put down unless on veterinary grounds. Those that cannot be found new homes are kept in the sanctuary as part of the Animal Lifeline ‘family’.
Lifeline normally re-homes dogs only in the North Staffordshire and South Cheshire. The charity is self-supporting and relies on its own fund-raising efforts and public donations to maintain its vital activities. All Trustees and officials are unpaid. Donations are always appreciated – see Donations & Fundraising page.
