Help Us

Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary receives no government funding and therefore we rely heavily on the generosity and goodwill of individuals like you, there are so many ways to help:


Make a donation

Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland’s only equine and education-based animal charity and we depend on the support of generous individuals to allow us to continue our vital work. Public donations make up a large proportion of our income and are therefore fundamental in helping us deal with the number of welfare cases. Donations of blankets, food, papers and toys are also welcome.

If you have a Paypal account, debit or credit card you can donate online now!


Give With our Wishlist

There are so many animals at the sanctuary and so much work to do. You can help us help them by donating food, supplements, toys, tools, etc. to the sanctuary via our Amazon Wishlist.


Organise an Event

Visit our Events page to see the various ways you can help us raise much needed funds.


Pledge a legacy

At Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary we must also think about the future and prepare for the animals that will need our help in the months or years to come. Pledging a legacy is the most certain way a person has of providing for others after their death, whether it is for family, friends, pets or for charities.

Legacies left by kind supporters and animal lovers allow us to continue to fulfil our charity objectives. It’s very straightforward to make a provision for Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary in your Will whether you are drawing up a new one or amending an existing one. Just speak to your solicitor or contact the Sanctuary for advice.



Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary is a voluntary organisation that relies on the support and dedication of committed animal lovers. You can volunteer to help with day to day care of the animals on the yard, or help with regular fundraising events such as bag packing in local supermarkets. If you would like to become a volunteer please complete and return a Volunteer Induction Form.
