Today we officially turn 25!
Our Logo may have changed slightly over the past 25 years but we haven't... well not much.
We have grown, both mentally and physically. Our support is international and so are some of our rehomed animals; with one dog emigrating with his family to San Francisco.
We have seen many faces through our gates, some humans some animals.
We need to thank everyone so much for their support over the past 25 years; all of those who supported us financially, those who supported us through food donations, bedding, vet care, those who gave their time on-site and during rescues.
Those who have helped with our rehoming and fundraising, those who have been with us through the mud, and the tears.
Those who have been with us through laughter and joy.
Those who have been with us for our lifetime but equally those who have only joined us.
You are all the reason we are still here 25 years on and still making a difference. You are the reason we have helped 349 animals this year so far!
You are the reason we have been able to help 1000s of animals in need across Northern Ireland.
We couldn't save them all, the frustrations of which are still felt deeply, but we will continue to try, to fight for the voiceless, those who cannot defend themselves.
We will always have a home for all our animals here at the sanctuary; even if sometimes space is nonexistent we will find a way. We will do whatever is in our power.
Thank you for your support while we fight for them all, and provide a loving home to those who have chosen the sanctuary as their forever home.
Join us this evening on Facebook for the premiere of a video we have made to celebrate today!
