Excellent rescue centre with great staff and only place I'd go to home a rescue dog. Can't believe how much it has grown over the years

Everyone is completely rude no one smiled. I will never ever look to adopt a dog or bring my family down there again. Worst experience. Next time I’m going to faith for adoptions much better reviews and polite staff

Hi. The rescue isn't open in the winter. Best thing to do is check Hillsides website before travelling. Or phone them. Well worth a visit. Well worth donating your spare cash too.

All dogs are allowed at the sanctuary, obviously they have to be under control as there are animals there. The rescue dogs are not at West Runton, they are at Frettenham.
