Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary - Northern Ireland


We are honestly sinking under the financial pressures of caring for the animals in need. We are not a large charity and we never have much in the way of reserves but the COVID19 crisis has completely depleted what money we had spare and we are doing all we can to keep our heads above water. We are not going to survive without your help!⠀

In response to COVID-19, we have restricted our Rehoming and rescuing work at the current time as we cannot put our people at risk because without them we cannot provide the care needed to our current 120+ animals.

We will still be offering advice via email and if there is an animal that needs us we will be there for them in whatever way we can. We will do our best to keep the website updated - but for the most up to date information check out our Facebook Page.

2020 marks our 24th year since we achieved charitable status. By our reckoning and records that is over 5,000 animals helped since we started our journey together. Please help us continue!

We are running an online ballot to raise funds for the animals in need. Tickets can be bought directly from our website and your ticket number will be marked as you invoice number. Draw will take place on July 1st - hopefully at the sanctuary where we will be back to full strength!

Buy your tickets now and help us to keep going!
