Thomas came to us several years ago as an 8 year old. He was emaciated, lame and very cross. He had been around various homes, riding schools etc but was very quickly moved on again due to his bad manners. He had aggression problems and would have bitten and kicked people without any obvious provocation. His worst crime was to bite a young girl hard on her face. With a little training, he is now a lovely pony, capable of doing anything asked of him. He has represented the sanctuary at many public events, working with disabled children and in our Animals Helping People programs.Thomas has joined some of the other rehabilitated rescued horses, ponies and ex-racehorses at CLAS to provide private riding lessons to raise funds for less fortunate animals in need of help.

Percy the Rooster is a real character. He loves hanging out with all the animals here at CLAS. Percy likes to steal the dog’s and cat’s food whenever he gets the chance. In fact he’s a master at finding any food and helping himself! He refuses to come in with the other chickens at night and roosts up in the trees, he’s a true Free Spirit. Photo shows Percy being “photo-bombed” by Henry the cat!

If you would like to sponsor Percy for a small donation each month, please click the link below:

Did you know that you can sponsor one of our animals monthly to help pay for their care?

Fred is about 4 years old and lived at one of the neighbouring farms. He visited us regularly and eventually moved in. We noticed that his eyes were a peculiar colour and his sight was not 100%. He was very thin on arrival but with lots of encouragement and extra feeding he thrived. However, his eyesight deteriorated. We took him to Vet Ian Miller, the eye specialist at Earlswood Veterinary Hospital where Fred’s diagnosis was that he would lose his sight within the year and that was in August 2014. It was either a congenital problem or a blow to head that caused this.
Fred is happy and content with his good friends at CLAS and lives happily in our back kennel block. Fred likes working with the horses
and enjoys using his natural ability of herding and guarding. With his eyesight deteriorating rapidly now, we have started to prepare him for his change of lifestyle and have introduced lead walking so that he can adapt with his changes, so his world doesn’t become shattered.
Many dogs adjust very well given the right help and understanding and we feel that we can give him a great quality of life even with his blindness.
Fred needs a lot of TLC as he adjusts and he has already become accustomed to comfortable blankets and loves his tummy tickled at night before bed.
We are always grateful for volunteer dog walkers that can come up.
