How You Can Help

Make a donation

Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland’s only equine and education-based animal charity and we depend on the support of generous individuals to allow us to continue our vital work. Public donations make up a large proportion of our income and are therefore fundamental in helping us deal with the number of welfare cases we receive regularly. If you have a PayPal account, debit or credit card you can donate online now and, if you can, please sign up for a “recurring” monthly donation by ticking the box beside the donation amount.

Donations of duvets, towels & blankets for bedding, as well as food and toys are also welcome. (These can also be ordered for us via Amazon by clicking HERE)”


Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary is a voluntary organisation that relies on the support and dedication of committed animal lovers. You can volunteer to help with day to day care of the animals on the yard, or help with regular fundraising events such as bag packing in local supermarkets. If you would like to become a volunteer please complete and return a Volunteer Induction Form.

Pledge a legacy

At Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary we must also think about the future and prepare for the animals that will need our help in the months or years to come. Pledging a legacy is the most certain way a person has of providing for others after their death, whether it is for family, friends, pets or for charities.

Legacies left by kind supporters and animal lovers allow us to continue to fulfil our charity objectives. It’s very straightforward to make a provision for Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary in your Will whether you are drawing up a new one or amending an existing one. Just speak to your solicitor or contact the Sanctuary for advice.
