Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Crisis
Announcements

Britain's foremost animal sanctuary has become subject to escalating price rises which jeopardise their ability to provide existing care for many of their rescued animals.

Along with the recession, this winterís dramatic doubling of hay prices has left the sanctuary unable to fund ongoing feed bills. The constant struggle to provide feed has, in turn, also affected their ability to pay for vital services such as veterinary care.

Hillside may look to the future positively (due to impending legacies) but as bequests often rely on the sale of property, which at the moment is slow, these funds are not immediately available. With past reserves tied up in land which is now a permanent home to rescued animals the staff have nowhere to turn except to those who sympathise and can assist with their aims and plight.

Any amount that you are able to give, however small, would be so gratefully appreciated . . .

N.B. Last year's dry summer has caused a shortage of hay, spiralling prices from the usual £3.50 a bale to this winter's price of around £7. With around 400 horses, ponies and donkeys, 500 sheep and goats, and 135 cattle, hay is always one of their main expenditures.
