Get Involved

Our need for funds to support the work we do is constant as we have no secure funding and rely entirely on the goodwill of the public. There are many ways you can get involved and support our sanctuary.



We are very lucky to have some great supporters who raise funds for us in various ways. Every penny helps us to look after the animals at ABC and we are so very grateful.


If you have an idea for a fundraising initiative we'd love to hear about it! Please contact us to let us know and we will be happy to publicise your efforts on our website and our social media pages.


To give you some ideas, we've had people joining Mud Runs, Firewalks and even had people running the London Marathon to raise money for the sanctuary. 

You can use the button below to start a funraiser.


Become a Sponsor

You can help us take care of the animals at ABC by sponsoring them. For a small contribution you can give an animal the time they need to recover and have a second chance in life. You will help guarantee their future with us where they will never be short of love, care or food again.

Sponsoring an animal costs just £36.00 per year, for each animal. You can pay with a standing order of £3.00 per month or if your prefer £36.00 annually.

Sponsorship also makes an ideal and compassionate gift. In return for your sponsorship you will receive:

  • A sponsorship certificate

  • A photo of your animal

  • Regular e-mail newsletters about your animal

You can choose to sponsor one of our resident animals or an animal that's up for rehoming. Meet our animals and choose your favourite.

Become a Champion

The sanctuary has no secure funding and is entirely reliant on donations from the public to enable the care of the animals who live there. For a relatively small contribution you can become an ABC Champion and help provide the animals with shelter, food, love and care.

Becoming an ABC Champion costs just £12 per month.

In return for your support, you’ll hear their stories, see their pictures, have pre-arranged access to the animals and feel like these special animals are a part of your life.

You will also receive:

  • A sponsorship certificate

  • Regular e-mail newsletters about the sanctuary

  • A private visit to the sanctuary by prior arrangement for up to 4 people (incl. the Champion)



At ABC we depend entirely on the support of our volunteers. We have people from the age of 16 upwards and from all walks of life who give up a few hours of their time each week to look after the animals at ABC.

Training is provided and tasks vary but could include:

  • Feeding

  • Cleaning the animal quarters

  • Grooming

  • Helping at fund-raising events 

  • Various maintenance tasks

You will be working as a member of a team that will give you all the help and support you need and you will very quickly become part of the volunteer “family”.


What do you get out of it?

  • Volunteering is rewarding

  • You will be making a difference

  • Meeting new people and making friends

  • You have fun and might even learn some new skills

Update: We are currently looking for weekday volunteers (Monday - Friday) only.
