Flicka Foundation Horse and Donkey Sanctuary, Support Adoption For Pets

Flicka Foundation Horse and Donkey Sanctuary have had the privilege of many horses, ponies, sheep, pigs, cows, cats, dogs, rabbits, many small animals and now donkeys coming to them for many different reasons. Some have suffered unthinkable cruelty.

"We are the Flicka Foundation Horse and Donkey Sanctuary in Cornwall.

In September 2014 we applied to Support Adoption For Pets for a grant towards a donkey barn extension. With the imminent arrival of more donkeys we needed extra space.

The application process is very straightforward, clear and concise and the team at Handforth were very helpful to ensure we completed and supplied all details necessary to maximize our chance of being successful. Our contact was Emily Evans who helped and kept us informed and updated constantly.

Our application was successful and we were awarded the grant at the end of October. Work started immediately on the barn extension and was finished by the end of the year. We are thrilled with it, and have filled it already, we just couldn’t have managed without this extension and we are deeply grateful to everyone who donates to Support Adoption for Pets and all the team at head office to enable this ‘wish’ to be a reality.

Support Adoption For Pets is a unique charity. The grants, awards and donations are for animals, not about what they can do in the community, nor about how they can help people, which is all well and good, but for those of us who just rescue, rehabilitate and rehome it is all about the animals themselves, nothing else. It is heart-warming to know there is an organisation out there that cares about animal welfare and helps enormously."
