Happyfields Animal Sanctuary
Cost of project
Happyfields Animal Sanctuary, based in Earlswood started with just one rescued goat, followed by a donkey – just over 7 years ago! More animals followed, leading them to expand onto a larger piece of land in Kings Norton.
What is Happyfields Animal Sanctuary?
Happyfields have 2 objectives:
- To house animals that have been abandoned, neglected or are otherwise in distress including the provision of veterinary care for such animals.
- The advancement of education of the public in the care of animals.
The sanctuary aim to rescue and re-home animals. But, for any reason they unable to do this, they become a permanent resident at Happyfields.
Of course, to keep the Sanctuary going comes at a cost. The animals all eat different foods and sometimes need a vet, the equines have a blacksmith. So they allow lots of people to come and visit to raise much needed funds. The sanctuary caters for; children’s parties, work experience, picnics, school trips, special needs children, vulnerable adults, the elderly – anyone that loves animals and the outdoors!
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
As the lovely animals are housed is at the very top of a field. The route for visitors is inaccessible for pushchairs, wheelchair users and the less able bodied members of the public; it’s bumpy, and when it rains it is very muddy!
Happyfield’s have planned a suitable access route, they already have the planning permission and the volunteers to get to work. YOUR funding will go towards the materials to get this built!
