Leave a gift in your will
Support Ferne Animal Sanctuary with a Legacy
Gifts that people have left in their Will to Ferne Animal Sanctuary have enhanced and secured the lives of the many animals in its care. The Baroness Van Heemstra left a legacy which funded a barn for the farm animals which is now known as the Van Heemstra Shelter.
Betty Blakeborough’s legacy supported the lovely gazebo that provides the perfect outdoor classroom for school visits where children can learn about animals and how they should be looked after. Other legacies have funded a kennel in the rehoming centre, the cat and kitten run and so much more.
Most recently a substantial legacy has enabled us to build a new visitors’ centre.
