The Sanctuary is safe, we're here for life

three-pigs

"The future of Princess, Pudding and Pumpkin at the Sanctuary is now safe, they will live here until the end of their days. They are the lucky ones,there are so few places for pigs to go as pigs have very special needs. Many of them who have been bought as pets have eventually had to go for slaughter as sanctuaries like ours are inundated with requests to take them and have no spaces left. Small piglets, described as Micro pigs, are marketed as expensive "latest fashion" pets and are then kept in unsuitable surroundings which they soon outgrow, or demolish. They are pigs and want to be able to live and behave like pigs, not the latest animal fashion accessory.

Save the Sanctuary Update

There are big changes ahead for Manor Orchard Farm. The future of the farm and for all the animals, present and future is being secured. As many of you might already have experienced, solicitors move at a pace that suits them so we have to remain patient for a little bit longer. We will then be in a position to make much needed improvements, not just for the animals but also for the hard working staff who have grown rather weary of having to push laden wheelbarrows through a foot or two of mud.

It is a dream coming true, to feel that the animals will never again be under the threat that has existed for almost four years. We still don't want to reveal too many details at this stage so bear with us, and there will then be a celebration here at the farm to which everyone will be invited. Please continue to watch this space.

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.

Save the Sanctuary - Ways you can help

Crowd funding a for a charity shop

Please support out crowd funding effort to set up a charity shop for the Farm Animal Sanctuary. A shop would give us a much needed regular income and help secure the future of the sanctuary.

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 832640 or jantaylor.sanc@tiscali.co.uk

“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
