Happyfields Animal Sanctuary
‘Within three or four months of being with us, they’re completely different animals.’
Happyfields Animal Sanctuary, based in Kings Norton, started in 2000 with just one goat, named Hollie. She was soon joined by donkey, Milly, and since then, the sanctuary has grown and is now home to over 50 different animals.
Who are Happyfields Animal Sanctuary?
Happyfields’ residents currently include goats, pigs, mules, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, chickens, geese and many more! Whether fur, feathers or hair, you can definitely find a friend at Happyfields.
The sanctuary’s main aim is to care for, and provide a ‘forever home’ for unwanted, often abused and neglected, animals. They care for all types of animals and cover their basic and medical needs. Although some animals find loving new homes, others have sometimes been so badly abused that they are unable to be re-homed and they become a permanent resident of Happyfields.
Although the primary function of Happyfields is to care for animals, the sanctuary offers free access to the public and holds many open days, allowing the community to interact with all of the animals. This is a vital part of Happyfields’ aim to educate the community about animal welfare.
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
Due to the ongoing costs of caring for more than 50 animals, the struggling sanctuary have been unable to repair or replace the animal shelters that have been badly damaged due to the weather this winter. With your help, the many different animals at Happyfields would have lovely new homes to live in.
The weather has also caused damage to the sanctuary’s fencing and the funding would also go towards the cost of repairing this to keep their residents safe.
