Hopefield Animal Sanctuary


Hopefield cares for a variety of animals including horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks, cats and more recently has become home to smaller animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas. As a small charity Hopefield relies upon donations and support from volunteers to be able to continue this work. The local council is considering using the land that the sanctuary is on for a new housing development. If this goes ahead the sanctuary will need to close, leaving the animals with nowhere to live. Funding and support urgently needed. Patrons Leona Lewis & Brian Blessed.
