We have set up a animal feed shopping list if you would like to help us through the next few month.

EVERY SATURDAY JOIN OUR VIRTUAL ANIMAL EXPERINCES. we are running virtual animals experiences at 11am every Saturday. Each week is a different theme.  February 6th we are doing 'Buddy & Friends' to join Buddy & Anthony on their experience send a £5 donation to our gofundmepage and put the word 'Buddy' as your middle name i.e. John Buddy Smith and we will send you the joining instruction for Zoom for a 30 min virtual animals experience.  Its been very popular so far :)
