Animal Rescue, Rehabilitation, Rehoming, Retirement has been a massive part of life for 25yrs+
It is a 365 day 24/7 commitment! More a dedicated passion and way of life than a career.
We have incorporated the rescued animals into Therapy and Education with great success.
It started by using our own funding with generosity of friends and family and then included public donations and help of volunteers. We recently spent several months to register with the Charity Commission to enable us to prove we are a transparent professional organisation, committed to the long term growth of the project and to aid in grants applications for the project’s future.
