Why Sponsor An Animal?
Most of the animals we care for find a happy future away from Oak Tree, but occasionally we come across an individual who, through no fault of their own, finds themselves remaining in our care for a long time. This may be for a variety of reasons, be it due to health, or particular behaviour issues. Whatever the reason, the welfare of every animal our charity cares for is our priority.
Your contributions to our sponsorship scheme will go towards food, veterinary bills, enrichment and bedding for the animals in the sponsorship scheme. It will also go towards costs associated with accommodation and care such as repairs, heating and water.
By joining our sponsorship scheme, you can play a vital role in ensuring the well-being and happiness of our permanent residents.

The Donkey Den
The Donkey Den is the home of Charlie Pringle, Zak and Margo. They were brought to Oak Tree by the Donkey Sanctuary in 2021. The Donkey Den has a very important role to play here at Oak Tree. It keeps our lovely donkeys out of the rain, which is vital to their welfare because donkeys don’t have waterproof coats. It also provides shelter from the cold and is another place for them to play with their favourite toys and enjoy the different sources of enrichment provided by their carers.
The Cattery is where all of our feline residents eat, sleep, and play while they wait to find the perfect home. Your contributions help to maintain their home and support their essential needs like food, heating, cat litter, vet bills, enrichment toys and more.
The Kennels is where all of our canine residents eat, sleep, and play while they wait to find the perfect home. Your contributions help to maintain their home and support their essential needs like food, heating, poo bags, vet bills, enrichment toys and more.
The Stables are where all of our equine residents eat, sleep, and enjoy enrichment when they're not out in the fields. Your contributions help to maintain their home and support their essential needs like food, heating, dental work, vet bills and more.
Hello, my name is Chammy! I’m a cream and white miniature Shetland pony, who arrived at Oak Tree earlier this year. I was born in 2006 and suffer from Cushing’s disease (PPID). I’m quite shy at times but I enjoy watching the visitors to the Equine Yard from a distance.
Oak Tree depends heavily on the generosity of its supporters, without it we simply wouldn’t exist.
You could be a part of our mission to provide a safe place for animals in need!
