Woodlands Animal Sanctuary is a self-funded registered charity. This means we have to raise every penny ourselves through one off donations, events or sponsorship.

All the money donated to Woodlands goes directly back to the running costs at the shelter. Our running costs currently stand at roughly £3000 per week, which is a large task for our fundraisers to meet. Your donations mean a lot to us.

Monthly Donations

There are many ways you can donate to Woodlands, however the best way is via a monthly standing order. A standing order enables us to calculate how much money is guaranteed for the sanctuary each month, allowing us to plan in advance the number of animals we can care for.
