Online Donation

Thank you so much for taking us into your heart and making a donation to The Sanctuary, please remember that every donation no matter how large or small has a direct affect on our animals and their welfare.

Your funds go directly to the care of 150 plus animals including horses, dogs, cats, pigs, sheep and even Emu's! Your donation will directly help us to feed, house and care for them.

Your donation also provides us with the ability to save and give sanctuary and rehabillitation to complex dogs who would otherwise be put to sleep. Without your support we would not be able to save half as many lives as we do, quite simply your donation is helping us to save them one by one.

Annonymous Donations

If you would like your donation to be annonymous please tick the annonymous checkbox and your name will not then appear on our website.
