Latest news....

  Update  - The Covid-19 pandemic and how it impacted the Animal Samaritans.

At the start of this pandemic, we were rallying around trying to find placements for all of our Animal Samaritan pets before lockdown happened.
Thanks to the support of our members and friends, we were able to temporarily place all of the Animal Samaritan cats, dogs and rabbits with our  amazing volunteers and fosterers. 

We are pleased to announce that we are now able to resume re-homing, but with additional safety and social distance measures. 

Please contact us if you have any cat, dog or small pet enquiries.

About us


Animal Samaritans is a regional UK registered charity operating in South East London and South East England

The aim of Animal Samaritans is to rescue, provide care and shelter for unwanted, abandoned, neglected or ill-treated animals and to provide new homes for them wherever possible. 

Animal Samaritans has a policy of not destroying healthy pets. We encourage neutering and ensure all cats and dogs are microchipped before re-homing

We do not have a rescue centre facility so we rely on our wonderful group of volunteers and fosterers. We are always looking for new help so please contact us if you feel able to do so.


What we do


Rescue and Rehoming – We try to rescue and find new forever homes for as many pets as we can. We operate a non destruction policy and never put a healthy animal to sleep.

Financial Assistance – Our resources are limited, but we try to answer as many requests for help that we can. Whether it is an unexpected vet bills, assistance with micro-chipping or neutering, we will consider every application for help

Pet bereavement lineWe offer help and advice for anyone dealing with the grief of losing a beloved pet. Our Bereavement service allows owners to talk about their pets and their grief in a non judgemental arena.
