Comments from South Eastern Regional College about their recent visit to us at the sanctuary:

"I want to let you know how much our students enjoyed their visit on 12th March. Despite the weather they had a great time and learned a tremendous amount from Lynn. No matter how much they learn in the classroom there's nothing like seeing things for themselves. They are now in the throws of designing a yard layout and discussing the pros and cons of grass kept, stable kept and combined systems, which is their first assignment. So they are able to use the knowledge they gained at Crosskennan to contribute to this."

**CAN YOU HELP THEM?**
Many of the animals who come in to us do so in very poor condition due to abuse and neglect, they require a lot of rehabilitation and expensive veterinary care bring them back to health so we can give them a second chance at life. We cannot do this without your help.
Please help us by donating just £3 per month via text.
*Text CLAS to 70660 to help them*

Or visit: https://www.justgiving.com/crosskennanlaneanimalsanctuary to set up a regular donation for a different amount if you can.

The volunteers of CLAS have been deeply saddened recently due to the loss of two of our long term residents. Pepper had been with us from he was only a few weeks old arriving by his mother's side until he was around 16 years old. Alice was also in her late teens having been with us for many years coming in as part of a rescue case. Pepper had suffered an injury whilst out in the field and despite expert veterinary care, x-rays, ongoing medication and rest after a period of months his pain levels were not decreasing and his quality of life was being compromised. Alice, his long term best friend, had an ongoing arthritic condition which was also effecting her quality of life. Knowing that we could not control their levels of pain adequately we felt it was kindest to let them go together.
Many people will remember how Pepper worked with our visiting groups at the sanctuary, whilst Alice did not enjoy being handled and kept herself to herself. If you have any fond memories of either of them at CLAS please let us know!
