Save the Sanctuary, Save My Home, Save My Life

"Hi, I’m Tilly the Bassett, I arrived at the Sanctuary as my owners realised I needed more company and WOW! I’ve got it here - lots of animals, birds, humans and visitors who I just adore. The sheep is ET he is into his teens now and has been here since he was a lamb, before I came. He was attacked by a dog and found by walkers, he was dying. The vet they took him to did save his life but sadly not his hearing. He lost his ears in the attack. Please donate today to save our home. THANK YOU, Tilly.

Save the Sanctuary Update

Thank you all for reading this, for continuing to support the animals and us, and for staying with us during the everlasting battle to keep the animals and birds safe at Manor Orchard Farm. I’m not going to go on about our situation because you will have heard it all before, and it is the festive season, but I will say that negotiations to buy the farm are still ongoing. The price asked for the farm has gone up from £450,000 to £1million in a very short space of time. The very good news is that we have new solicitors acting for us, also a London based QC, who have given us renewed confidence in the outcome, they really do seem very determined to win this very unfair and unnecessary fight for us. Jan.

If you have any queries or questions relating to the eviction please address them directly to Jan Taylor at Thank you.

“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
