Finding Forever Homes

About Margaret Green Animal Rescue


IMG 5472 (333x500)At Margaret Green Animal Rescue we take in pets that have become homeless due to a change in circumstances, or that have been neglected, mistreated or abandoned. Regardless of their circumstance, each pet will find a warm bed, a kind team and all the love and respect they deserve awaiting them at Margaret Green Animal Rescue.

We pride ourselves on the standard of care each rescue pet receives. As well as veterinary care, pets are prepared and rehabilitated ready for a new home. Most of our animals are vaccinated, micro chipped, treated against worms and fleas and neutered before going to their new home.

Finding forever homes is at the very heart of what we do and there is no better feeling than knowing we have found the perfect match. Our rehoming process is designed specifically to help potential owners adopt a pet that fits in perfectly with their lives and loved ones. 

After adopting a pet from Margaret Green Animal Rescue you can be assured that you will always have our support. For advice and guidance, we will be right beside you whenever you need us through the adoption process and onwards as you settle into a life together.

Margaret Green 1966Margaret Green, who founded our charity in 1965, was an amazing lady with incredible strength and determination. She passed away on Christmas Eve 2009, age 94. Despite being hospitalised for some weeks prior to her death, she still wouldn’t stop thinking of animals and even on the night before she died, she insisted on checking that arrangements had been made for her annual Christmas donation of carrots for Angel and all the other horses at our Church Knowle Centre.

Nowadays our aims remain unchanged and we care for over 1,200 animals each year across three centres. 

Our Church Knowle Rehoming and Visitor Centre covers 35 acres of beautiful Purbeck countryside. It is home to cats, horses, donkeys, pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks and many more species. It is also a visitor centre and is open 7 days a week between 10am and 4pm. Church Knowle is also home to the charity’s head office which houses the finance, retail and fundraising teams. 

Our Lincoln Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre for Dogs is situated between Blandford and Bere Regis in Dorset. 

Finally, our Wingletang Rescue and Rehoming Centre for Dogs and Cats is situated near Tavistock, in Devon.
