The Lord Whisky Sanctuary Fund (Registered Charity No: 283483) was established in 1981 to support the work of The Park House Animal Sanctuary.
It was named after a little Jack Russell called Whisky who came to the sanctuary at the age of 4 years, having had six previous homes. He lived with founder, Margaret Todd and her family until he had to be put down at the age of 22 years.
Since then, there have been hundreds of ‘Lord Whisky’s’ plus horses, donkeys, pigs, goats, cats and other small animals, many of whom go on to find loving homes, Others who, like Whisky, have special needs, remain at the sanctuary for the rest of their lives.
The charity’s aims are adhered to without exception and the interest of each individual animal is our primary concern. Expediency is never a concern and each animal is welcome to stay in our care for as long as it takes for that special home and loving family to come. No animal accepted is ever put to sleep unless it is due to quality of life. We re-home around 400 animals per year and generally have on average, 200 animals in residence.
We also run three veterinary clinics for people on low income giving help not only to animals, but also to their grateful owners.
We recieve no Government funding and rely entirely on legacies, donations and fund-raising.
