Summer 2014 Shearing & Hay Appeal
Funding for Hay & Shearing desperately needed!
Contractor Mike just finishing the shearing of Dave with Dave's magnificent fleece in the foreground.
All of the sheep are then treated with 'Clik' to give them protection
against Fly-Strike which the warm and humid weather encourages.
All nicely sheared and all overgrown hoofs trimmed, the sheep are relaxed out in the field and shading under a tree.
All the shearing, hoof trimming etc. takes around 8/9 days to complete every year.
Could you help with either of these appeals?
The annual cost of sheep shearing and treatment is huge and seriously depletes our finances.
We also need to stock up with hay at this time of year to save on feed costs in the wintertime.
There is much other work to be done throughout the summer and this all takes
it's toll. Quite often we are literally struggling to survive and pay for
feed and veterinary costs, therefore your help and support really does make a
you to all for your kind and much appreciated support.
Farm Animal Cruelty
Some of our animals have escaped the horrendous "Live Export Trade". These
animals have suffered a lot and they deserve the peace they
now enjoy. Creatures which are too often dismissed as stupid
and worthless show remarkable intelligence and gentleness
once you've dispelled their fear.
See the great characters at Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary.
Whether they be exhausted cull ewes that have been forced to breed
beyond any capacity that nature intended, or animals badly
injured due to careless and rapid loading of terrified sheep
on to ill designed transporters. A lucky few have found
their way to Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary but the
unfortunate majority are left to cope. For as the need for
profit increases so man's compassion lessens and the victims
continue to suffer.
Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary's costs are
very high and we have to rely upon a sympathetic public to
fund the sanctuary. Our membership is small but their
loyalty is unmatched. All time is
volunteered, no wages to pay, no offices to maintain - every
penny goes to our animals to feed, shelter and to provide
Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary's most important
TARGET must be to secure a monthly income. Can you help?
