Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary - Northern Ireland


In response to COVID-19, we are operating under a restricted capacity although as of JULY 2020 we are beginning training with new volunteers and have reopened rehoming. Please be aware we are not at full staff and our admin volunteers are working from home where they can to ensure emails are still answered. This does mean however that phone lines are not manned so we ask if you need to contact us to use email.

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 means we over 5,000 animals helped since we started our journey together. Please help us continue!

In July 2020 we relaunched our sponsorship scheme, where you can sign up to support one of our animals via a monthly recurring donation of as little as £2. We have selected 10 of our permanent residents who will really benefit from your support!

You can help an Animal today!
By texting CLAS12 followed by the amount of the donation e.g. “CLAS12 £5” to 70070.
To 70070
Or why not set up a monthly sponsorship?
