A safe goat home and playground at the Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary!
Can you help us install new improved fencing to create a safe spacious playground for our expanding community of goats?
Help us install new improved goat fencing - it will cost around $3000 to put in safe fencing to offer a spacious secure home for Stanley, Hetty, Ivy, Sunday, Sammy, Roscoe, Simon and all the others. As our community of needy rescued goats is steadly getting larger and livelier, we need to create bigger and better paddocks and playgrounds. Goats can jump very high, so it is important to have good fencing to keep them safe. We need to buy 300 metres of mesh to extend our current fencing, and also posts and netting to enable grass rotation. Every donation of $5.00 will buy a metre of mesh and some battens!
Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary's involvement (page creator)
To give you some background, Black Sheep rehabilitates and re-homes abused, injured, and neglected non-human animals. We support animal rights and animal protection, and our main goal is to provide a safe haven for animals. Right now two full-time caretakers, with support from dedicated part-time volunteers and WWOOFers care for around a hundred and fifty animals (pigs, goats, sheep, roosters, geese, cows, horses, dogs, cats, ducks, hedgehogs, magpies etc.) at Otaki Forks, an hour's drive north of Wellington.
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 other animals of their own kind. Where possible we rehome to loving forever homes, but there are many animals with special needs who live permanently with us. We're run by the Animal Protection Society, a registered charity, and we're hoping for your help to create a very much needed new fence! Stanley, Hetty, Ivy, Sunday, Sammy, Roscoe, Simon and the others will all be frolicking in safety and happiness.
The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary is a safe and sustainable space
for abused, injured and neglected animals.
We focus on farm animals and have around 200 furry friends.
We also teach compassion and try to educate people about animal and human rights.

We made it with your help! Thank you so much to all the wonderful generous people who donated money and spread the word about our goat fencing Give-a-little project. It's now been successful, and we're looking forward to doing some fencing. An enormous thank you to you all from the kids (and the old goats too)!
