Why we need your help

ANIMAL CARE WILL NOT STOP AT WOODSIDE

Following the news that here in the Uk, as it is for many of our supporters around the world, lives will be very different for the foreseeable future, we wanted to reassure you all that the animals in our care remain a priority. 

With 145 animals in our care at the sanctuary, both residents and those who will in time be looking for new homes. 

Our main source of income has been our seven charity shops, which as of 24th March will remain closed until we know that it is safe to reopen. All our fundraising events have now been cancelled until at least July. 

Founder of the trust Carole Bowles said "We have worrying times ahead. I have never, in the 42 years of running the sanctuary, seen anything like this. The animals remain our top priority and we will continue their care as normal but that will come at a cost. We hugely rely on our 7 charity shops and public donations for day to day running. We understand that for many these donations will fall as priorities change". 

"I am extremely proud of our staff, many have offered to bring in camp beds and stay on site, along with staff who already live on site, should isolation and lock down require it. Some staff have volunteered to cut hours in order for the trust to be able save money. It's at times like these that you really realise what a great and strong team we have at Woodside"

Funds raised through this page, will make a huge difference to helping keep the animals safe in this scary time. We hope to raise enough to cover the costs lost due to the closer of the shops and cancellation of all events for the comming months. 

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help.
