Croskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary is a fantastic little charity based in Antrim that is dedicated to the care and rehoming of all kinds of animals that they rescue. Mainly helping horses and ponies, but also aiding dogs, cats, rabbits and chickens, Crosskennan has been tackling the issue of abandoned animals in their local area since 1996 when they received registered status.
They are not funded by the government in any way, so the support and donations from the public is very important to them. Whether you help by making a donation, volunteering or by holding a fundraising event, the people at Crosskennan are very grateful for any aid, so the charity of the month application will be able to help in a fantastic way.
Ireland has a history of horse abandonment, with the prices for horses and ponies being sold dropping to drastic lows in recent years. Thanks to the recession, it was not uncommon to see horses left tied in fields or at roadsides, undernourished and mistreated. Charities such as Crosskennan have worked hard to stop this kind of treatment and ensure a better future for the animals of Ireland.
Animal Friends is happy to support Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary, and we wish them all the best in this month’s Charity of the Month.
Whilst the winner of our Facebook ‘Charity of the Month’ competition will receive a £5,000 donation from Animal Friends, the other 3 charities will also receive donations; with second place receiving a donation of £2,000 and third and fourth both receiving £1,500.
We feel all of these charities deserve some kind of donation. However, whoever wins the big donation is up to you.
