Because of increased demand
for our Animal Assisted Therapy
programme during the week, Willows will be
reducing the opening hours of our Scottish
visitor attraction to Saturday & Sunday from the
15th of September. This will mean our first days
open will be Saturday the 19th & Sunday the 20th
of September. The visitor attraction will still
be available for pre-booked School, clubs and
group visits through the week.
Willows Animal Sanctuary
is the largest
and will try to help any animal in
distress. We operate a strict no kill policy and only
put an animal to sleep on veterinary advice. Willows
now cares for almost 100 equines as well as over 60
cats and dogs, 100 farm animals and birds and many more
small animals and reptiles. We particularly try to help
horses and ponies who would otherwise face slaughter.
We are totally dependent on donations, legacies and
grants from benevolent organizations to keep the sanctuary
running. Unlike larger charities we have no reserves
of money and are always desperately short of funds.
We specialise in helping elderly or more vulnerable
animals that have already been refused help by well-known
large national charities, but we can only continue to
help needy animals with your support!
