The sanctuary is run by husband and wife team, David, a 78 year old retired Master Mariner and Clare, a 72 year old animal rights campaigner. David is vegetarian and Clare is Vegan. They have 2 daughters, one son, 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters They have wonderful volunteers who come daily to help with the cleaning and general jobs. They started the sanctuary 25 years ago and hope to continue as long as our energy and health permit!! They do not put any animal to sleep unless it has a terminal illness or if the vet advises us it is in the interest of the cat to do so. All work is voluntary, all money goes towards the care of the cats and kittens.
