Carole’s JOURNEY

It was in 1988 when the first seedlings of Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary were sown…

Carole Webb, a former veterinary nurse heard about a very poorly new-born lamb at a local farm in Hertfordshire. Not expected to survive, she asked the farmer if she could adopt the tiny lamb. The farmer agreed. Naming him Larry, she took him home to hand rear, but Larry certainly wasn’t the last! Next came premature lamb triplets, who she named the Didley family. All three had to be fed every few hours and just like Larry they thrived…

“I don’t think I have met anyone to whom sheep are dearer…

Carole knew the name of every sheep she was caring for and what I was able to see with my own eyes that the sheep felt similarly about her.”

EMERGENCY COVID APPEAL

Winter months are always the hardest times for most animal sanctuaries and rescue centres and we are no exception. The grass stops growing, the paddocks and surrounding areas become muddy, and the animals need a lot of extra care and attention. Since the Covid crisis began in March 2020, we have had no visits, or events to tide us over, and we are facing uncertainty as to what and when we can organise in the future. The long term effects of the pandemic are really starting to hit home.

And this is the reason why we are, yet again, reaching to you for help.

How to support the animals

It currently costs around £90,000 per year to run. We never make a profit – everything is invested back into the animals. We are all so very grateful here at FARS for any size donation.

Another way to support us is by sponsoring one of our cheeky characters, purchasing from our Amazon or Ebay wish list, sign up to easy-fundraising which prompts the shops to donate everytime you purchase, or maybe purchase some of our ethically sourced branded merchandise from our online shop, all of which have been designed by our volunteers, so 100% of the profits go to the animals. You can send money via paypal, to our Emergency Covid-19 Hay and Feed appeal or BACS direct into our back account:

Sort code: 40-24-45
Account number: 40009830

We have a great team…

…of volunteers here at the sanctuary but are always looking to expand. We are always happy to hear from animal lovers who would like to help out, regardless of age or ability.

There are many ways you can volunteer, whether you can do hands on work at the sanctuary, raise funds for us or help on stalls at fairs, or maybe you have specialist skills that you could contribute in other ways.

Please let us know, we’d love to hear from you!
