Standing orders and regular donations

The sanctuary cost over £40,000 to run last year. We had high vets bills, high haylage bills that is without all the improvements we made to the ferret and donkey housing.
Regular donations however small are a massive help to us and the good news is that it all goes to the sanctuary not someones wages. If this is something you would like to do then this is how
You can set up a regular payment through paypal via our donate button or you could email us at if you would like to do it through the bank and we will give you our bank details. We are extremely grateful for regular payments. They are a real support to the sanctuary Thank you to our wonderful supporters who already do it

Why we do not rehome

One of the main aims we have is for our animals to bond with each other. It can take a lot of planning to work out which horses will go together. Horses will naturally pair bond for life and so once our animals have settled in and made friends we do not give them the stress of going to new homes where they have to start the process again. We did try loan homes in the early days but they rarely worked out as some of our horses are very difficult in new situations and so we made the decision to give our animals a home for life. This works for us but more important it works for our animals

Lady joins the family

Lady a retired race horse has a history of being difficult to handle and also is unable to be ridden. She captured our hearts and so we agreed to give her a home at the sanctuary. This makes our horse and pony population up to 32. Welcome to your new home Lady xx

Winter feed and bedding appeal

We are struggling at the sanctuary with the freezing wind and snow. The animals are needing more feed and bedding in order to keep warm. We are asking if you would like to help towards these costs by making a small donation we would be very grateful. We are struggling with frozen pipes and taps to add to the difficulty of dealing with the winter conditions. If you would like to help us there is a donate button on this website or you can send a cheque made out to Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary and post to Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary, Greenland Grove, St Osyth, Essex, CO16 8JE thank you very much
