This has been a really difficult and challenging year for everyone but your support throughout the year, despite your own hardships, has literally kept us going so that we could continue to care for our animals.

We have been overwhelmed by your kind and generous gestures and we have received so many messages of support and encouragement to keep us fighting on. We really cannot thank you enough, you have all been amazing and we couldn’t do it without YOU.

It’s no surprise to you that as we have been closed since March we have lost most of our income during this pandemic and continue to do so. It has to be said that we are still very concerned about the future of our Sanctuary. All of you contribute so much – at this time of year especially – and although we hate to ask, our Christmas Appeal this year is simply to ask if you can donate what you can for our future.

Your donations ensure that we can continue to make a real difference to the lives of the animals we care for. They fund medical care, urgently needed medicines and critical operations, food and warmth for those who have no-one. The easy bit for us is to give plenty of love, TLC, enrichment and safety to all in our care and YOU help us to do this. There are lots of ways to donate so we have set them out below.

We fully appreciate that this is a big ask and if you are not able to donate there are other equally important ways you can help, such as fundraising, passing on our message to family and friends, following us on social media and sharing our posts, check out our ‘ways to shop’ below, or even launching a JustGiving appeal and setting yourself a challenge!

We know you will join us in giving a big shout out and a massive thank you to all of our wonderful staff who have continued to work throughout the pandemic. They have been truly remarkable and we couldn’t have asked for more in such challenging times.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and much better times in the New Year.
