The Chaldon Animal Sanctuary in Surrey has been operational since 1991 and is run by Jacky and Liz. They have upwards of 150 animals in their care – all of which will live out their days with the love and devotion that these two women provide.

Many of these animals are unhomeable because of behavioural problems; some have come because their owners have moved into sheltered accommodation and they are unable to take their pets with them.  The sanctuary is not a rescue or a rehoming centre. They provide life-long care for animals that have been abused, neglected, mistreated, or rescued from cruel situations.

They are non-breeding, and non-profit making and depend on the goodwill of the general public who raise funds in various ingenious ways. Used postage stamps, bric-a-brac, towels, blankets are always welcome.

There is a sponsorship scheme whereby you can sponsor an animal for the remainder of its life. You receive a photo and regular updates on your chosen animal. The sponsorship money goes towards its keep and veterinary bills.

Over £2000 a month goes on veterinary bills and food so donations are always welcome.

Sadly Jacky died in 2011 which leaves Liz working solely on her own. She struggles so any offers of help: volunteering, donations, etc, would be gratefully accepted.   

A Morning Kiss

A morning kiss, a discreet touch of his nose landing somewhere on the middle of my face.
Because his long white whiskers tickled, I began every day laughing.
