What we do
Founded in 1996, the Mid-Antrim Animal Sanctuary concentrates its work on animal re-homing, education and relieving the suffering of unwanted animals. The charity operates a strict ‘No Kill’ policy and year on year finds new homes for approximately 1000 animals, mainly dogs and cats, saving them from possible destruction. Prior to re-homing, and on the successful completion of a home check, all animals are vaccinated, neutered, wormed, de-flead and micro-chipped.
In 2012 the Sanctuary completed a major new build project giving an exciting opportunity to increase capacity and ensure the long term sustainability of the charity and the animals needing care.
The Sanctuary also works in partnership with Women’s Aid ABCL&N in that if a women finds themselves in need of refuge facilities we will offer their dog or cat a safe refuge. The animal will have access to our kennel or cattery facilities and we will allow for feeding, exercise, socialisation and access to veterinary care for a sufficient period in order that issues relating to the woman and her family can be addressed. Additionally, we will accommodate visits from the family to the animal in a private and secure environment if the conditions are right and under the supervision of respective case workers.
Annual operating costs are in excess of £270,000 and with no avenues for government funding the Sanctuary is totally dependent on the generosity of the general public.
