 New stretch target

This will help continue to keep 'the lights on' for the rescued animals and will be used to continue supporting the sanctuary financially. 

Well everyone! Guess what? We’ve reached our target in record time. THANK YOU to everyone that has donated already, you are incredible people with kind hearts.

We’ve extended the allowance for donations to £8k for anyone that would still like to donate to the Farm Animal Sanctuary. We are sure they would welcome any additional help Friends of the Animals can offer.

For a number of years, the Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary has been paying the same monthly amount for it's electricity and when a meter reading was recently submitted, it was discovered a substantial amount was owing. 

When it's dark in the countryside, it is pitch black and for the almost 500 rescued animals on site, we desperately need to keep the supply switched on.

There is no house, just a caravan for the volunteers, an outhouse and barns.

The amount owed to OVO energy is a mega £4,355-00, BUT, great things can be achieved when caring people pull together and any amount to help the Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary reduce this worryingly large bill, will be very gratefully received.

Friends of the Animals have been supporting The Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary for more than 16 years by paying for vet bills, shearing costs and some feed, straw and maintenance bills. Based in Stratford-on-Avon, we have also employed several sanctuary workers there. We want to be able to support them more in their time of need (now, more than ever) and call on you for your continued generosity...
