Other ways to support us

Visit Us

The admission fee you pay to see our animals all goes to support us. Every penny is spent on our animal care work. The costs of running the rescue centre are huge, and are increasing year on year. The biggest costs to us are feed, energy bills, rates and vet bills. We rarely turn away animals in need of a home, but taking on more animals increases costs further each time, this means we need your support more than ever.
