Sunlight Sanctuary is creating safe sanctuary for abused, exploited and unwanted animals.

We are a vegan abolitionist sanctuary in the middle of rural France. We create a safe and healing space for any animal in need - regardless of species - where they can finally relax, decompress and enjoy feeling the sun on their faces and learn that life and humans can be good. We treat all animals in our care equally and strive to provide them with the best quality of life, the best diet and the best veterinary care, tailored to their needs as an inidividual. The animals in our sanctuary are all rescued from situations where they were in danger, whether through exploitation and threat of slaughter in the food industry, abuse, neglect or abandonment. We also promote veganism as the ultimate aim is to change hearts and minds and help people see that all beings are sentient and deserve to live out their lives free of suffering. We are hoping to move to a bigger property and open a vegan education centre where we can more effectively promote the joys and benefits of embracing a vegan lifestyle through interactions with the animals and activities and events exploring veganism and helping people make the change. By becoming a patron of Sunlight Sanctuary you are enabling us to carry on providing a bright beacon of light and hope to animals who desperately need rescuing from dire situations and supporting their lifelong safety and care. Becoming a patron will also help us towards our eventual goal of expansion which will increase our capacity to take in more animals and create our vegan education centre, something so desperately needed in France.

Our goal is $1000 which will help pay for;

- Good quality food for our rescued hens, roosters and ducks.
- Good quality food for our small furries, dogs, and cats.
- Hay and other feed for our goats and donkeys.
- Bedding.
- Grazing costs for our donkeys and horse as we have to rent land.
- Routine farrier costs for our equines.
- Veterinary fees, by far one our greatest and most difficult expenses as they are unpredictable and inevitable when taking in abused, injured, disabled and neglected (etc) animals.
- Fuel costs for trips to specialists vets - due to our remote location we clock up 1000’s of miles per year and huge bills for fuel and tolls from having to drive to specialist vets in Paris. 
- Heating costs; The Sanctuary property is an old watermill. We have no central heating, mains gas or functioning woodburner so we use a gas bottle fire for the human heating but have to run many electric radiators 24/7 all winter in all the rooms containing animals. This generates a massive electricity bill of hundreds of Euro’s per month.
- Good quality fresh produce for all the animals (except the cats). We get through a massive amount of fresh produce every month. 
- Building new infrastructure when a new animal arrives; when a new resident arrives we often have to build new pens/enclosures and houses at great expense. We have to have excellent predator proofing due to the Pine Martins, foxes, hawks and hunting dogs that could harm our animals and it becomes very expensive. 
- Routine worming/parasite control for all the animals.
- Spaying, neutering and microchipping of new animals where applicable.
- Medication and medical supplies.

If you become a Sunlight Sanctuary patron you can be sure you are helping an anti-speciesist vegan sanctuary strive to provide the highest level of care to some of the World’s most needy and forgotten victims. By becoming a Patron you can help us not only exist and survive month to month but be able to grow and leave our door open to as many animals who need us. 

With much gratitude, love and hope for a better future for all beings,

Lucy and Pablo ~ Founders of Sunlight Sanctuary 💛
