Why Sponsorship is so important to us
Even though we find new homes for over 1,000 animals per year we are asked to take in many more. The cost of caring for any animal is steadily rising and that is why we need your help. Our Sanctuary is totally dependent on the generosity of people like you to help us to ‘care for those who have no-one’. We do not receive any government funding at all.
Most of our animals find loving new homes but those who need a little extra care will always be safe and happy with us. If you can help to support one of our animals who are residents for life because they need a little extra care, then they will be getting some extra love from you too!
Sponsoring one of our Donkeys
Sponsorship costs just £25 per year and this is a wonderful contribution to the cost of care for your animal. You will receive a sponsorship certificate with a photo of your sponsored animal, some information about the donkey and a Bleakholt pin badge which we hope you will wear proudly. Of course you can come and visit as often as you like. They’ve all got loads of love to give – all they need is a best friend like you!
You are welcome to visit the Sanctuary to choose which animal you would like to sponsor. These are our resident donkeys that have need of your help.
Sponsorship makes an ideal gift at any time of the year for an animal-loving friend or relative – birthdays, Christmas, Easter, as a ‘thank you’ gift, or simply to say ‘I love you’! You can choose the message or dedication you want on the certificate and we can even post it directly to them for you.
If you are a UK tax payer you can help us even more by gift aiding your sponsorship donation. This means that we can reclaim the income tax you paid on the figure you are donating. This is currently 25%, so an extra 25p per pound donated! Please help us make the most of your generosity by gift aiding your donation.
