About Us

The Clymping Dog Sanctuary was started  in the 1950’s by   Mrs Kathleen Grellier and her friend the then Duchess of Norfolk. It is run today by volunteers.

We take in unwanted and stray dogs and also dogs from owners who find they can no longer keep them. We never judge. We care for and keep the dogs until we can find loving,  forever homes for them.

We would never put a clinically healthy dog down so  sometimes we have a few long term residents with us until the right owner comes along.

Unfortunately we sometimes have dogs that we feel we cannot rehome maybe due to  behavioural problems. These dogs stay with us forever and we love them.

The average cost of a caring for our dogs is around £11 a day and that covers the kennelling, cleaning, food etc. but doesn’t include any veterinary bills. These can certainly add up. Money is always tight.
