The Sanctuary Angels fundraise for grass-roots animal rescues, UK and overseas, through our Sanctuary Programme. We raise vital funds for those who help some of the most vulnerable animals on the planet. We are proud to say that around 95% of the money that is donated to us reaches the rescues in our Sanctuary Programme, with around 5% being spent on essential expenses. We are all volunteers and rely entirely on donations from the public. Through astute financial management and hard work, we ensure that your money works hard for the animals. Since we set up in 2008, we have raised more than £50,000 for animals around the world (see Sanctuary Programme).
In our 2019/20 Sanctuary Programme, we are supporting the following rescues: Kingfisher Wildlife & Exotics Sanctuary; Dogs 4 Rescue; Cihangir Cool for Cats; Animal Aid Unlimited; Big V Sanctuary; Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary; Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary; Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary; Flicka Foundation; Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary; KOPAS; Parodi's Cats; Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary; KACPAW; APAM; Urbun Sanctuary Rabbit Rescue; Saving Suffering Strays; Mama Cat Animal Rescue; Hillside Animal Sanctuary; Cambridgeshire Wildlife Care; Raluca's Romania Cat Rescue Shelter; Forgotten Shelter of Kozan; Footprints Animal Sanctuary; Lucy's UK Donkey Foundation; Care for Cretan Cats; Dean Farm Trust; Evermore Dog Rescue; Beneath the Wood Sanctuary; Safe Haven for Donkeys; Save a Stray; New Haven Vegan Project; Farplace Animal Sanctuary; the Thai Animal Sanctuary; and the Trikala Shelter. To find out how you can help us, please visit How you can help.
The Sanctuary Angels also promote adoption, ethical veganism and cruelty-free living, and they campaign against animal cruelty in all its forms (see Cruelty-free). Our vision is a world free from animal suffering, where all animals are free from harm and treated as individuals in their own right, who have something valuable to contribute to this planet.
WHAT OUR SUPPORTERS SAY...
"I am a supporter of Sanctuary Angels because I know my money is going to really important, well-deserved and small animal charities around the world."
Katy Duffy, monthly donor and supporter, London
"A small group of people who believe that a small act of kindness can make a difference... The Sanctuary Angels offer some hope that there are, and will continue to be, people who will fight for those creatures that cannot speak out."
Nicola Rigelsford, volunteer and supporter, Huntingdon
"The Sanctuary Angels have supported our non-profit for years and we are so grateful for their kindness and compassion. It is people like you that help make this world a better place."
Abigail Geer, Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary, Spain
"The Sanctuary Angels are such a wonderful group, fundraising in all weathers for rescues who would receive little help otherwise. They highlight small charities and rescues that can't afford to market themselves and raise awareness of animal issues globally...even helping people take the step into veganism without any judgement or criticism."
Clare Metcalf, supporter, Jarrow
"I am very grateful for the help The Sanctuary Angels have given me. I feed over 140 cats a day in Northern Italy. I have over 100 cats here at my refuge. Without donations and help from The Sanctuary Angels, I would be truly struggling."
Sheila Rawden, Parodi's Cats, Italy
"Wild Futures' Monkey Sanctuary is extremely lucky to have The Sanctuary Angels' support. Without people like them, and everyone that supports them, we would not be able to continue the work we do. The Sanctuary Angels have raised vital funds for Wild Futures over the years that have gone directly to rescuing, rehabilitating, and providing homes for life for monkeys that have been rescued from the UK primate pet trade."
Sarah Hanson, Wild Futures' Monkey Sanctuary, Cornwall
"Can't thank Amanda and the team enough for their wonderful work to raise awareness and support the rescues at Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary – truly Angels on Earth."
Martin Morgan, Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary, Essex
"These guys are so generous , raising money for a whole range of sanctuaries all over the world..."
Emma-Jane Yoxall, supporter
"The Sanctuary Angels work so hard for animals all over the world. The reasons I decided to give regularly to this charity is that you can rely on all the money you donate going to the people/animals that need it. I know all of my money is going where it is needed and I don't have to make a decision each month about where I should donate. The vision of the group is 'a world free from animal suffering'. What could possibly be better than that? Amazing charity!"
Kim Burgess, monthly donor and supporter
"Angels in every sense of the word, The Sanctuary Angels reach out to animals across the seas. No geographical boundaries stop them reaching out to help needy animals. Right now they have made KACPAW the Sanctuary of the Month and are helping dogs in Sri Lanka through us. This is not the first time they reached out to help dogs in Sri Lanka. Over and over again they have, through KACPAW. Immensely thankful for the overwhelming care and love they have for animals. Help The Sancturay Angels to help animals please. Thank you!"
Champa Fernando, KACPAW, Sri Lanka
