Coventry's The Funny Farm animal sanctuary launches £1,000 fund-raising campaign to secure its future

Coventry Editorial 26th Mar, 2022

A PET rescue sanctuary in Coventry has launched a fund-raising campaign to help it through its difficult times difficult times and secure its future, writes Billy Powis.

The Funny Farm poultry and small pet rescue has started the GoFundMe page to raise £1,000 as many issues had arisen at the voluntary organisation over the past few months.

Damage was caused over the winter so weather proofing the sheds and fencing was needed, along with emergency vet treatment for some of the animals.

The funding will also cover basic necessities, such as repairing and maintaining existing pens, purchasing food and bedding and creating a communal area for bonded rabbits.

Alan Baker, representative of the sanctuary and organiser of the GoFundMe page, said the sanctuary did not like asking for donations but circumstances meant it was left with no choice.

“We don’t like to rely on contributions from anybody but with so many animals currently here looking for new homes and in sanctuary it’s the only way we can survive.”

As the group is not a registered business or charity, it relies on donations to keep running.

Anyone who could help should go to the GoFundMe fund-raising page or visit The Funny Farm – Coventry Facebook page.
