New Barn Appeal

We urgently need a new barn before winter kicks in. We have over 500 animals at the sanctuary taken in from situations of abuse, neglect, slaughter and abandonment. We struggle as it is but without a new barn we don’t know how we are going to look after our aging animals. To keep them healthy, they need good draught free ventilation and dry beds. A new barn would give them all of this. We need a new ‘retirement home’ for our deserving pensioners. They deserve this, they have suffered enough before coming to us, let’s make sure their time with us is as comfortable as we can make it. Read more

Fund Raising

Like every other Charity fundraising is one of the biggest issues and challenges facing everyone. We don't produce anything apart from fleeces once a year. Were it not for neighbour Liz, who sorts our fleeces, sells them online and at a Fibre Festival which takes place once a year, the cost of shearing would outweigh the money we receive from the Wool Marketing Board. We rely totally on donations and legacies, but as I've said so many times farm animals are right at the bottom of the pile when it comes to gaining empathy and support.

We're here not just to give the lucky ones the chance of a life of care and respect but also to support campaigns to greatly improve and implement welfare standards.

We will always be looking for people who will help us in any way to raise much needed funds. Ours have been sorely depleted paying the legal fees during this whole sad, sorry and totally unnecessary debacle, so please, please stay with us.

How you can help us to fundraise.

We need to raise at least £2,500 each week, new supporters to help us do this are always very welcome. If you live locally could you do a Car Boot sale for us, we have many saleable items here but not the time. Can you ask friends, family, colleagues etc. if they have any unwanted or broken gold or silver jewellery they could donate? If you have any other ideas please let us know. Is there a local handyman/woman who has a few hours to spare to help with small repairs to field shelters, aviaries etc? All suggestions welcome.

Please get in touch with Janet on 01386 834500 or

“Whoever believes that farm animals can be raised and slaughtered humanely should be here to listen to the constant bleating’s of our neighbour’s ewes. Their lambs have just been rounded up and taken to the slaughterhouse. The ewes have been frantically searching the fields looking for them for days. The lambs will bleat for the whole of the journey, their first, and what will be their last. They will get over it one way or the other, they don’t have a choice.” Janet Taylor
