About Willows Animal Sanctuary
Willows Animal Sanctuary is the largest sanctuary in Aberdeenshire and will try to help any animal in distress. We operate a strict no kill policy and only put an animal to sleep on veterinary advice. Willows now cares for almost 100 equines as well as over 60 cats and dogs, 100 farm animals and birds and many more small animals and reptiles. We particularly try to help horses and ponies who would otherwise face slaughter.

We are totally dependent on donations, legacies and grants from benevolent organizations to keep the sanctuary running. Unlike larger charities we have no reserves of money and are always desperately short of funds. We specialise in helping elderly or more vulnerable animals that have already been refused help by well-known large national charities, but we can only continue to help needy animals with your support!
The Animal Assisted Therapy Unit at Willows

Willows helps many vulnerable people with its animal - assisted therapy programme. The concept of allowing rescued animals to help vulnerable people on the road back to health is very innovative and has been independently evaluated and shown to be highly beneficial.

Paul says: 'Having visited Willows Animal Sanctuary I am aware of the immense need for what they do. Not only do they employ vulnerable people, seven days a week they run an Animal Assisted Therapy Program pairing challenged individuals with animals to aid in their healing. If that weren't enough they provide a sanctuary before heaven to more than 300 unwanted, abused and old animals ranging from rabbits, cats, dogs, sheep to horses of all sizes and have been doing so with limited funding for 15 years. To help them continue please join Cynthia and I by signing on as a Friend of Willows'.
