This campaign is being run with the full consent and blessing of Barby Keel.

New health & safety regulations mean that we need to raise approx £15,000 to be able to provide new  fencing and double barriers between the public and the animals.
We also have to finish a toilet block,  provide extra hand basins, concrete more of our paths and various other changes to meet the new standards so we are not shut down!!

These upgrades and refurbishments are going to be expensive and we need to turn to the public for help.


The Sanctuary provides a specialist unit for cats with FIV, one of the only sanctuaries to do so.  We also provide a safe haven for cats, dogs, rabbits, seagulls, chickens, a variety of farm animals, feathered friends, and  other pets of various shapes and sizes.

PLEASE HELP!

About Barby Keel's Animal Sanctuary


Barby Keel founded the Animal Sanctuary in 1971.

The Sanctuary provides a refuge for lost
or rejected animals and fowl of all kinds.

We try to find permanent and loving
homes for the animals, when possible. 

Animals which can't be re-homed for
any reason are given a permanent home
at the Sanctuary. 

All the animals receive medical treatment
when necessary and all are spayed or neutered.

Barby Keel never puts any animal down,
unless it is absolutely necessary to prevent
needless suffering.

Many many thanks for the kind donations this year.
Its coming up to Christmas, and the animals need your help!
New health & safety regulations have meant that we needed to raise approx £15,000 to be able to cover the cost of new fencing and double barriers between the public and the animals. Although we are some way there,
we have had to use vital funds which need to be replenished to guarantee a future for the Sanctuary and its residents.
We also have had to finish a toilet block,  provide extra hand basins, concrete more of our paths and various other changes to meet new standards.
These upgrades and refurbishments have been expensive and we need to turn to the public for help because there is still more to do.
The Sanctuary provides a specialist unit for cats with FIV, one of the only sanctuaries to do so.  We also provide a safe haven for cats, dogs, rabbits, seagulls, chickens, a variety of farm animals, feathered friends, and  other pets of various shapes and sizes.

At Barby Keel’s we NEVER put a healthy animal down!

WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP THIS XMAS

We are now up to £1400, thank you everyone who has donated. Please can you all keep sharing and donating.
Here is a picture of Tinker at the Sanctuary, she has needed a lot of time and patience but it is paying off. She is the sort of cat that without a Sanctuary like ours would have faced a very bleak future. Your kind donations will help us continue to help cats like Tinker.

We must raise the funds for the 'Health & Safety ' refurbishments so Barby Keel ' s Animal Sanctuary can 'safely' continue the essential work needed and be open to the public on time for the coming Spring/Summer season . I & many others love the Sunday afternoons there...Great shop, nice teas , plants, & the animals - guided tours etc. The Open Day in August is amazing .So many bargains at the stalls ,great events , wonderful food - as well as the animals on view! And of course Barby!
