Help a Horse Day: Join Us in Making a Difference at Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary

As Help a Horse Day dawns upon us, it's a poignant moment to reflect on the incredible work being done at sanctuaries like Crosskennan Lane, where every day is dedicated to the welfare and care of horses and other animals in need. This year, on April 26th, 2024, we invite you to join us in making a difference for these majestic creatures.

Meet Lydia, one of our beloved equine residents at Crosskennan Lane. As she approaches her 23rd birthday on May 1st, we're celebrating not only her special day but also the resilience and strength she embodies. Lydia's journey to our sanctuary is a testament to the importance of compassion and support for animals who have faced neglect, abuse, or abandonment.

Here are some ways you can get involved this Help a Horse Day and beyond:

  1. Gift a Present for Lydia's Birthday: Lydia's 23rd birthday is just around the corner, and you can help make it extra special by sending her a thoughtful present. From grooming brushes to tasty treats like fresh carrots and apples, every gift is a gesture of love and care that contributes to Lydia's well-being.

  2. Join Us on World Donkey Day: As we celebrate World Donkey Day, marked on May 8th, you can sign up to volunteer on the yard at Crosskennan Lane. Spend a day surrounded by these gentle creatures, lending a helping hand with feeding, grooming, and maintaining the sanctuary grounds. Your time and dedication make a tangible difference in the lives of our animal residents.

  3. Make a Donation: Your support goes a long way in providing essential care and resources for horses like Lydia and their companions. Consider making a donation, whether it's a one-time gift or a recurring contribution. Just £21 can cover the cost of feeding a horse for an entire week, ensuring they receive the nourishment they need to thrive.

  4. Donate Supplies: In addition to monetary donations, we also welcome contributions of supplies such as headcollars, leadropes, grooming brushes, shavings for bedding, and more. These items play a vital role in maintaining the health and comfort of our animal residents.

  5. Get Involved as a Volunteer: Join us for one of our upcoming volunteer days and experience the joy of hands-on work with horses and other animals. Whether you're an experienced equestrian or new to the world of animal care, there's a place for you at Crosskennan Lane.

  6. Spread the Word: Share our message on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to raise awareness about Help a Horse Day and encourage others to get involved.

  7. Host a Fundraiser: Organise a fundraising event in your community to support Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary. Whether it's a bake sale, a sponsored walk, or a charity auction, every contribution counts towards making a difference for horses and other animals in need.

  8. Educate Others: Take the opportunity to educate your friends, family, and colleagues about the importance of equine welfare and responsible animal care. By raising awareness and promoting kindness towards animals, we can create a more compassionate society.

Your support, whether through donations, volunteering, or spreading awareness, enables us to continue our mission of providing sanctuary, care, and rehabilitation for animals in need. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of horses like Lydia and ensure they receive the love and compassion they deserve.

This Help a Horse Day, let's come together to celebrate these magnificent animals and reaffirm our commitment to their well-being. Join us at Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary as we strive to create a brighter future for horses and all creatures great and small.
