Covid-19 – Sanctuary closed to visitors

Dear WPF friends. We are navigating in unchartered territory with Covid-19. We aren’t sure if our supply chain will be disrupted in coming weeks/months and are working to ensure we have at least one month’s extra supply of feed, bedding and medical supplies on hand at all times for the 126 rescue residents that call Where Pigs Fly home. This involves significant and unexpected extra costs as we stock up on essential supplies ahead of a potential shutdown. Essentials include straw bales and wood shavings for bedding as well as all the animal feed and medical supplies needed to keep the sanctuary’s rescue pigs, ducks, sheep, goats, cows, donkeys, horses, hens, turkeys and alpacas healthy and happy.

Sadly, at the same time, the closure of our event programme for the foreseeable future means we are losing critical, expected funding at a time when most needed. Our events – sanctuary tours, group events, open days and private tours – are a significant part of our fundraising income which we rely heavily on to run the sanctuary. This shortfall in funding is devastating. We are a lifeline to farmed animals rescued from abuse, neglect and certain death, animals that literally have nowhere else to go. We need your help in these challenging times.

Please donate to our Funding Appeal.  Via our crowdfunder on Chuffed.

Please donate to our Funding Appeal. Directly via our website.

We receive no government support. We are 100% volunteer run. Any amount is much appreciated. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

Please take care of one another, stay safe and we look forward to opening the sanctuary gates again soon. Until then, on behalf of all the animals, thank you for your continued support.Debbie Pearce – Founder, Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary
