Brockswood Animal Sanctuary

A wonderful animal sanctuary located just outside Dudley.

Brockswood Animal Sanctuary not only cares for abandoned, abused and unwanted animals, but also brings those who are sick or injured back to health. The sanctuary is also a short drive from the centre of Birmingham, making it an ideal family day out.

Located in Sedgley, just outside Dudley, Brockswood Animal Sanctuary has lots of families to do, including family events, animal feeding and meeting some new furry friends, of course! Here are just some of the activities for families at the Sanctuary.

Meeting and feeding the animals

Brockswood is home to a number of different animals, including pigs, ponies, bunnies, various birds and ferrets, plus parakeets, turtles and Malcolm the emu! You can buy a bag of food for the animals from the cafe and get up close to the goats and sheep, who just love to be hand fed!

Birthday parties
Fancy a birthday party with a difference? Brockswood offers children’s parties from £8.50 per child, which includes a cold buffet with bottomless squash and entrance to the farm. Parties are available for up to 20 children.

Courses and workshops

In 2018, Brockswood offered courses and workshops for children, including Children’s Bushcraft Sessions for ages 5 to 12 years. What a fantastic way to learn about bushcraft! Keep an eye on their Facebook page for information about future events.

Family and fun events

The sanctuary runs a number of fun events and activities for families. Below are some of the events offered during 2018:
  • Santa’s Woodland Camp, including a Woodland Grotto and Christmas market
  • Halloween Event
  • Bushcraft sessions
  • Family fun days
  • Other events that include canine first aid, dog obedience and even paranormal events!

  • Sponsor an animal

    Brockswood provides members of the public with an opportunity to adopt one of their residents! You can view the animals available for sponsorship here and they include Callum the Welsh mountain pony, Duke the donkey, Leo the Shetland pony and Malcolm the emu. It’s a wonderful way to have an animal to call your own but without all the mess! You can also purchase bags of animal feeds by the sack, plus bales of hay and straw, shavings and sacks of carrots.

    Sponsorship also makes an ideal and unique gift for any animal lover friend, and their sponsorship information can even be posted directly to them. Profits go towards caring for the animal, including buying food, bedding, medication and vet bills, plus any enclosure renovations.
