Donations – Sanctuary

£800 a day

That is how much it costs to run Hallswood animal sanctuary every single day.
7 days a week, all year round.
Crazy don’t you think but this is the cost of an animal sanctuary, the cost of keeping all these lovely individuals you see on the pictures here safe, as well as the many hundreds brought to us every month. This sum includes everything - from electricity and vet bills to feed and fuel and means that in total, every day, we need to make £800 just to keep going.
Now, let me explain that a little bit better. Every month we get things donated; that can be anything from a few tins of cat food, or someone going to their local supermarket to buy 30 bottles of Zoflora for us. This will obviously all count towards that £800 per day if that makes sense. Every single thing we get donated = one less thing we have to buy and every £ paid of our vet-bill = one less £ we have to make.
That still leaves a massive amount of money that has to be raised every month!

So how do we do it, and how can you help?

We always need more newspapers - towels and blankets are also very welcome.
We are also always happy to accept opened bags of feed or the odd tin of cat-food 🙂
Please email for more info on delivery.

We have an Amazon Wishlist we update and “reset it” every month. The list shows most of the things that we buy every month so never mind what you buy – we truly will use it all! We will also add special things we need that are more of a one-off, like when we need a new ladder or maybe a drill.

There are things from as little as £2 all the way up to £35 and like I said we need everything!

If you have other things to donate but are unsure if we would be able to use them, please e-mail us on or check here for what we can accept in our charity shop.
