PACT was established as a charity in March 1995. The concept of PACT was born when Chris Rockingham, the founder, suffered a serious nervous breakdown and was helped back to health by her own animals. This inspired her to give something back to animals and in so doing help others with emotional and learning difficulties regain confidence and self-respect by interacting with animals.

The PACT sanctuary accommodates over 600 animals in the 15 acre site. The neglected, injured and abandoned animals PACT rescue range from hamsters to horses and budgies to peacocks. These animals are rehabilitated and where possible rehomed. PACT specialise in “problem animals” being victims of physical or mental abuse, which other organisations have neither the facilities nor expertise to cope.

The current crisis for abandoned and abused animals is worsening, particularly with dogs. At the sanctuary they are currently in the final stages of building a new cattery, and fourteen new kennels which will accommodate ten recently rescued ex-racing greyhounds which were facing euthanasia. Both building projects have been possible through the dedication and hard work of the many volunteers who work tirelessly to raise funds, supporters who donate regularly and two wonderful people who remembered the unwanted animals in their wills. The charity needs to raise some £600 daily for the care of the rescued animals.

Please help PACT help them!
