How to help the Big V Sanctuary


Every donation, no matter how big or small, helps us to meet the daily running costs of the Big V Sanctuary. If you’d like to help our 80+ residents, please click the PayPal donate button below.

Sponsor or adopt

You can sponsor any of the Big V residents with a regular monthly payment towards their food and care costs. Monthly sponsorship helps us to plan, provides us with income security, leaving us to focus on the care and enables us to continue rescuing and caring for all beings.

We are so grateful for any donation, however small. However, a cow costs €150 a month to feed, plus vets’ bills and winter bedding. So, if you would like to sponsor a cow, or maybe one of our smaller residents, please get in touch.

Alternatively, why not send a friend or relative one of our Friendship Packs? These make a special gift for birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas presents. Your recipient will receive a unique gift certificate, the individual story of your chosen resident, photos plus a personal message from their new friend – contact us for more details.

In relation to animal rights, Harriet Beecher Stowe said, 

It is a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done.

You have our deepest gratitude for choosing to support our sanctuary and helping us to care for our precious residents. Thank you for being one of ‘the best people’!
