*****LATEST NEWS, OUR APPLICATION FOR BELL FARM HAS BEEN ACCEPTED******
The Animal Sanctuary has issued an appeal for someone to come forward and offer them a piece of land on which to home the sanctuary.
It does not matter to us how run-down it is, we will rent it and are willing to work on it, if this means we can save the lives of all our animals. We do, however, have specific requirements, we would have to meet planning regulations and we have to be a certain distance from neighbours, therefore it can prove difficult to find a suitable alternative. Our priority is and always will be the animals. Because, sadly, there are always going to be animals out there who are abused and neglected and who need a second chance at life. We offer a refuge to animals that have suffered some of the most shocking examples of cruelty and neglect, saving many from certain death. We are the only animal sanctuary in the area that has a No Kill Policy. We operate a policy whereby no animals are humanely destroyed if they cannot be re-homed, any animals that cannot be re-homed are cared for at the sanctuary for the rest of their natural lives. We already run “hand to mouth” and stretch out of every single penny we are donated. A loan is unfortunately out of the question as repayments, alongside other related costs, which will increase, is simply out of our reach. We rely totally on our own fundraising and donations from the local community and local businesses. We really have worked so hard with our small band of dedicated volunteers to develop a fantastic relationship with our Special Needs Groups and the community, therefore a move within the area is essential. The alternative to being unable to relocate is unthinkable, PLEASE get in touch if you are able to help or know anyone that can, thank you very much!
