We are a non-profitable organisation dedicated to improving the life of unwanted animals. We take in animals of all shapes and sizes, from rabbits to horses, and we find them loving new homes. This rescue is run completely by volunteers and is completely reliant on the generosity of the public. 

 Urgent Fundraising Appeal

In light of what happened in Manchester, we are urgently trying to raise money to put in a sprinkler system into our rescue to protect our animals.

We are trying to get this system installed ASAP. If you are able to do an event, like a coffee morning to help us raise the money that would be really helpful.  If you are not able to do an event any donations are greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for your continued support.

We are now able to accept donations by Paypal. If you would like to donate this way please click on the donate button.  Thank you.
