There are many ways to support animals through the Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary. We are entirely run by volunteers, so all donations go directly to the sanctuary and our work to care for animals and promote animal rights.
Volunteer at the Sanctuary We welcome volunteers, especially those with skills in animal care, construction, website design or fundraising. WOOFers are very welcome and we are planning regular working bees, so please contact us if you would like to volunteer with us.
Donate to the Sanctuary At this stage we are very busy planning comfortable housing so we can provide a high standard of care for horses, cows, pigs, sheep, chickens and other animals. Materials are costly, so we welcome donations. Send a donation to the Animal Protection Society at PO Box 7500, Newtown, Wellington or donate directly into the Animal Protection Society bank account at Kiwibank 38 9005 0324267 00 (and email us so that we can thank you and send you a receipt). The Animal Protection Society is a registered charity, and all donations are tax-deductible.
Make a bequest to help animals Through your will you can leave a gift to the Animal Protection Society that will help animals in a very practical sense long after you have passed away. If you are thinking about gifting a portion of your estate to the sanctuary, there are more guidelines here.
Become a Friend of the Sanctuary Make a monthly donation to provide the continuous funding we need to support animals throughout the year. You can download an automatic payment form here - please complete, and return to your bank.
Volunteer at Opportunity for Animals, our charity shop The Animal Protection Society runs charity shops in Newtown and Kilbirnie, Wellington, that sell quality secondhand clothing and household goods to fundraise for animal charities and the sanctuary. The shops are entirely volunteer-run. If you are interested in volunteering at the op-shop please phone Kate at the shop on 04-389-3891 or leave a message and she will return your call.
