The sanctuary is vast and takes thousands each year to be heated. We use both oil and electricity as well as specialised bedding. In 2020, the cost of oil heating at the sanctuary was a whopping £5255.55. With energy costs souring these are set to vastly increase this year and with most of our Christmas fundraisers still unable to happen we need to raise much needed funds to keep all warm.
On an average year, the number of animals in our care tends to drop over the colder months (mostly as we come out of kitten season) but this hasn't been the case this year. We have seen numbers jump again in November with most sections full to bursting point and a waiting list for animals needing our help growing.
