Since last year our costs have increased by 50% and our income has halved. We promised our 600 rescued farm animals the best animal care, and a home for life.
Over the past 30 years, everything we have done is to deliver on these promises. We believe all of our 600 animals are living the best possible life.
But funds to keep going are dangerously low, and there is a real risk of this charity closing. We urgently need to find and additional £30,000 per month to save this charity and 600 rescued farm animals.
In this very difficult time we ask you to give whatever you can afford. Every pound makes a difference.
Please, we need your help.
Our animals rely on us to keep our promise to give them a forever home, advocate for them and educate current and future generations to demand excellent farm animal welfare standards.
If you are inspired by our work and would like to save and improve the lives of farm animals, you are in the right place!
