Help Us Raise £5000 for new stables
Fundraising is an essential part of sanctuary life – without your help we wouldn’t exist. We receive no state funding. Many of our rescued animals are unsuitable for re-homing. They stay with us for life, we never put any healthy pet to sleep.
Many of the larger animals that come to us are in poor condition and need special care to get them back on the road to recovery. Our existing facilities are not enough and we need to extend them to cope with demand.
Our rescued horses and farm animals are our next big project. Our cat cabin and kitten maternity project last year has been a huge success and transformed the lives of the cats that come to us. Now, we need to refurbish our stable block to provide extra facilities to care for our old and elderly horses. Last year we helped an elderly champion racehorse and his friend. If we hadn’t taken him in he was going to be put down. It would have been a sad end for a great horse. He needed lots of aftercare with frequent blacksmith, vet and tooth dentist appointments. We are happy to say, he is doing great now and enjoying life again. Looking after horses is a massive undertaking for us and without the correct facilities, a difficult task. We hope to raise enough funds to turn an existing shed into super stables for our little and large horses, sheep and farm animals that come to us.

If we can raise £5,000, we can convert our existing shed into 6 stables. Your donation will go a long way to helping with these costs and allow us to take in animals that need our help.
Campaigning and education is one of our driving forces at the sanctuary. We work with lots of young people, social care groups, local communities and schools to promote animal welfare and the care of animals. A new stable block will provide lots of opportunity for them to get involved with the animals.
