Not only is this small animal sanctuary desperately searching for a new base following the sale of the land they currently occupy, but last night some horrible person/s set the place on fire, destroying their stables and killing two sheep sad

I've already decided that I'm not being unreasonable by posting here purely for traffic.

If anybody wishes to donate, this is their JustGiving page:

If you want to read the article in the Oxford Mail, it is here:

If you want to have a look at their facebook page:

They will also need practical/material help as outlined on their facebook page if anyone is local to the area & they ultimately need a new base if anyone knows of any land.

If you can't donate, please share.

Thank you flowers

Jesus, people are despicable. Bastards. How could they sad. I've just donated to a Labrador needing an op at a rescue I follow, otherwise I would.

Have donated.

Utter, utter bastards. The arsonists of course, not the animal sanctuary.

Thank you for sharing this. I've visited their Facebook and will donate. What the hell is wrong with some people?!

Horrible, isn't it? sad

These people clearly work their arses off with the bare minimum of resources, built the place from scratch and some arsehole has torched it. They must be so upset.

Thank you for donating/sharing flowers

Who does that? angry

I'm normally the last person to say this, but I really hope the arsonists get their comeuppance for this!

Donated, some people are beyond cruel

. The absolute terror those poor innocent animals must have felt. Just doesn't bare thinking about.
I pray they find the culprits very very soon. If they'll do that to animals. They do it to humans

A wee bump for the insomniacs...

Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated, shared and bumped. They have already almost tripled their modest fundraising target but it would be wonderful to see how much further they can go smile
