The Animal Sanctuary in Wilmslow needs your support
In a quiet backwater of Wilmslow, animals of all kinds, rejected or abandoned by their owners, live out their lives in peace and security. Here are horses, donkeys, rabbits, chickens, birds and many other animals as well as cats and kittens in the Sanctuary’s cattery. Every animal has a story to tell, but they all have one thing in common – just when things couldn’t get any worse, they were rescued and found themselves in the caring hands of the Animal Sanctuary staff. The Sanctuary is home to the Humane Education Society, founded in Manchester in 1927 to promote compassion towards animals. Badly treated horses were the first residents and the Sanctuary still takes abused horses in today. At the other end of the size scale are kittens, rabbits and sometimes pet mice. All small animals are available for re-homing. If you are looking for a cat for example, come to the sanctuary and see the many cats ready and waiting for a new loving owner. Visitors are always welcome.
Glitter : Last year we were asked by the RSPCA if we could offer a long term home for a badly abused pony. Fortunately we were in a position to take her and slowly but surely we have got her health and confidence back. We call her Glitter and she really is the picture of health. It’s very rewarding to be able to give happiness back to any abused animal but Glitter has a special place in our hearts because we remember the terrible state she was in when she arrived. Glitter is just one of many animals who can now relax in the security of the Sanctuary.
