We believe that all animals deserve our respect and compassion, which is why we are committed to delivering exceptional animal husbandry and welfare standards.
After many hugely successful projects such as the Pig Barn & Woodland project and the Goodheart Home for Rescued Hens, we are launching our very next special capital appeal, but we need your help!
To ensure we are always providing optimal accommodation and care facilities for our animals, we would like to build a new multi-functional area at Goodheart Animal Sanctuary – a dedicated Rehabilitation & Special Care Unit.
You can be part of the Goodheart story by pledging £1,000 to purchase a symbolic Foundation Stone for this project. £11,000 worth has already been pledged and we'd like to keep this momentum going, so please help if you can. In return, you'll receive name recognition at our sanctuary as well the knowledge that you will have made our rescued animals very happy indeed!
About the project:
The new area will benefit a number of rescued animals, including:
- Our equines, some of which are elderly or require special care
- New residents who require rest or quarantine while we assess them
- Elderly or unwell animals who may be undergoing treatment or rehabilitation
The Rehabilitation & Special Care Unit will comprise of three different spaces:
A block of six stables will provide the perfect accommodation for our equines and will include a dedicated area for other animals who require specialised care. As well as a useful double width stable, it will include a large storage room for tack and other items. The block will be located at the rear of the main sanctuary yard where public footfall is limited to provide the animals with a peaceful and safe shelter.
At the end of the stable block, a dedicated treatment room will be an invaluable addition to this area, providing a private space to bring animals during veterinary treatments and securely store medical supplies.
Located next to the stables, a fenced and well-drained area of ground topped with soft substrate will be particularly beneficial for our laminitic equines, who cannot always have access to grass. This area will also include a shelter for overnight use.
