About The Sussex Pet Rescue Charitable Trust (Registered Charity No. 1048731)

We are a small registered charity working in Sussex. Our aim is to relieve the suffering of all companion animals across Sussex.

For owners who qualify on financial grounds, we help with the cost of veterinary treatment and neutering  for every kind of animal including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters and other more exotic companions.

We can advise on behavioural issues, rehoming and adoption and we work closely with several local animal charities. We also endeavour to help small older ponies through an association with ‘Happy Retirements’ .

With deep regret, due to the suspension of rehoming until at least October 2023, we are not currently accepting applications for rehoming, fostering or adoption.

  • Behavioural help

    We are available to help if your dog has behavioural problems and you would like to discuss them.  In addition we can give details of a number of professional behaviourists. Please ring Paula on 01372 274484.

  • Rehoming help

    We can also give you details of rescues which might be able to take your pet if you need to rehome them.

  • Veterinary help

    We may be able to help with the cost of veterinary treatment if you are on benefits or a low income. This side of our work has increased enormously over the last few years.

    We also promote a subsidised neutering scheme to help prevent unwanted litters of most small pets and thereby minimise the number of puppies and other animals that need rehoming. Sussex Pet Rescue may pay a proportion of the cost of neutering males and spaying females if you are on benefits or a low income.


Sussex Pet Rescue is run mostly by volunteers.

We have a network of helpers who do a variety of tasks for the charity, manning the phone lines to provide help with veterinary cases, helping people having problems with their animals or who need to find them new homes, volunteers who run a very popular cafe in the Meridian centre in Peacehaven and a fantastic team helping with fund raising and publicity.


We do NOT receive any grants from statutory bodies but rely totally on donations from the public, kind legacies in people’s wills and organisations that very kindly raise money on our behalf. Our heartfelt thanks to every person who makes a donation or leaves us something in their will.

Fox & Finch Alehouse in Worthing do an amazing job of fundraising for us throughout the year. Diane Jones and her team also organise and run the annual Companion Dog Show with Obedience at Upper Dicker every May, with proceeds to Sussex Pet Rescue, and Findon Downs Dog Training Club are also great supporters, running dog shows when they can.

Our very grateful thanks go to the various veterinary groups in Sussex who help us by offering discounted treatment.
