Why The Sweet Sanctuary?

In 2019 my partner and I had the opportunity to visit the sweet sanctuary and meet the animals. It was life changing. We immediately fell in love with Pippa, Ellen (in the picture to the left) and all the animals and knew we wanted to support this sanctuary.

We learned that piggies like belly rubs, chickens are soft and, most importantly, that the owners of the sanctuary are the most caring, selfless and compassionate people we've ever met. Over the years we've seen how their compassion has known no limits.T hey've taken in new animals and provided them safe refuge.They've done everything they can to improve the lives of the animals in their care - like finding new and better feed for the piggies - like constantly expanding the meadows and pig forests for their animals. 

We are so proud to support The Sweet Sanctuary and every penny of profit we earn will always be raised #fortheanimals
