Hopefield Animal Sanctuary cares for over 300 sick, unwanted and mistreated animals – including horses, cattle and rabbits. The land that the sanctuary is on is owned by Tescos, who want to sell it to housing developers. If this goes ahead the sanctuary will close, leaving the animals with nowhere to live. Many of the animals are too old to be adopted by members of the public, so closure would mean a death sentence for the animals!
Petition author and sanctuary manager Lianne said, “We provide a service not just for the animals but also for the public – we have school visits and children with learning difficulties come to see the animals.”
Please sign the petition to ask Brentwood Council to reclassify the land as a leisure and recreation area, which would reduce the value of the land, giving Hopefield Animal Sanctuary a chance to buy it, to save the animals.
