21 Years Rescuing Animals at Willows!

Willows Animal Sanctuary is the largest, ethically managed, equine, farm and domestic animal sanctuary in Scotland and will try to help any animal in distress. We operate a strict no kill policy and only euthanise an animal on veterinary advice. We look after over 450 animals including over 100 horses, ponies and donkeys, approximately 65 cats and dogs and many reptiles as well as over 200 farm animals and birds. We are very 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!
Would you like to have some fun and raise money for a Good Cause?

Angel - a Rescued Sheep
Angel was rescued from a poorly looked after flock when she was a lamb. Had Willows not intervened she would surely have died in the field.

She had a badly infected eye which received no treatment at all until she came to Willows. The Willows vet was obliged to remove the eye because it had degenerated so much and was a risk to her life. She has learnt to manage quite well without it.
Angel has a lovely temperament and always comes to say hello when we are in the fields. Recently, she has leant to walk nicely on a lead!
Calling all knitters!


Our Pledge to the Animals in Our Care
When you come to Willows, we will embrace and care for you. If you arrive broken, we will fix you if we can, and bring you back to good health. If you were let down in the past, we promise to keep you safe and we will do our best for you at all times, for you are now truly home. Your soul may be battered and broken, but all that is over now and you must let the past be the past. Peace and love will be all you know now and food and water will be in abundance. Shelter, bedding and medicine can be taken for granted now and we will watch over you.

When you become unwell and no pain relief works, when you are tired and you let us know that enough is enough, we will be there to hold you, with love and reassurance, as a kind vet helps you to slip quietly to sleep. Our hearts may be broken once again, but we take comfort in knowing that you are now safe and out of pain. When the next soul arrives, we’ll be strong enough to do it all again! Because to give a great life, means you have to be there to hold them at the end.
