Sadly, we are no longer asking for donations.

Wellington

We are very grateful to the kind people who have donated towards Nana's medical care. However, we are very sad at the sanctuary today. While we had been advised that Nana may still have a couple of years of quality life, her condition deteriorated very suddenly and unexpectedly, and the vet determined yesterday that this was irreversible. She was put to sleep today. Although Nana was in her twenties, this was still a big shock, as she had barely seemed to age while she was with us and it felt as if she would always be there! She was a gentle, loving, yet strong-willed personality who charmed everyone she met. So we will be closing this page down. Thank you for your support.

Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary's involvement (page creator)

The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary is a safe and sustainable space to rehabilitate and re-home abused, injured, and neglected non-human animals. We are a relatively new sanctuary on 26 acres of land at Otaki Forks, an hour's drive north of Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand. The Sanctuary operates according to animal rights principles and promotes animal liberation.

About us

The Black Sheep rehabilitates and re-homes abused, injured and neglected non-human animals. We support animal rights and animal protection, and our main aim is to provide a safe haven for animals, as well as outreach and education in our community. Right now four full-time caretakers, with support from dedicated part-time volunteers and WWOOFers care for over two hundred animals (pigs, goats, sheep, roosters, geese, cows, horses, dogs, cats, ducks, hedgehogs, geese, rabbits and many others) at Ōtaki Forks, an hour's drive north of Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington. Although our fundraising shops cover the sanctuary mortgage, we depend on community support for all animal care costs.

Our particular focus is to take in neglected, mistreated, and abandoned farm animals. We offer a refuge where they can live out their natural lives in peace and security, in the company of others of their kind. Where possible we rehome to loving forever homes, but there are many animals with special needs who are permanently with us. We're run by the Animal Protection Society, a registered charity, and we're hoping for your help to enable us to continue our animal rescue work. Thunder, Chester, Sirius, Iris, Struan, Sparkles, Betty Boo and many others will be so happy because of your contribution!

We are most grateful to the kind people who have donated towards Nana's medical care. However, we are very sad at the sanctuary today. While we had been advised that Nana may still have a couple of years to enjoy her life, her condition deteriorated very suddenly and unexpectedly, and the vet determined yesterday that this was irreversible. She was put to sleep today. Although Nana was probably in her twenties, this was still a big shock, as she had barely seemed to age while she was with us and it felt as if she would always be there!
