2. CAARS Rescue
Carers Anonymous Animal Rescue Sanctuary (CAARS) was first established in 1981 at Sneyd Farm in Essington to save at-risk dogs from euthanasia in local wardens and shelters. All animals are kept for at least 14 days to ensure they are medically sound and ready for rehoming.

Founded in 1892 on Canal Street in Birmingham, the Birmingham Dogs Home now has another location in Wolverhampton which houses over 100 strays and unwanted pets. They provide these pets with medical care, training, boarding, grooming and education.
