Gunyah Animal Healing Sanctuary provides a loving safe haven to animals who have suffered abuse, neglect, exploitation, abandonment, illness and those with special needs.
There are too many animals discarded or 'put to sleep' because they need time to heal - whether it be because they are ill, have suffered abuse or neglect, or because they have other special needs. Shelters and rescue groups cannot always cater for them and allow them the time and care that they need. Kathy firmly believes that these animals also deserve a 'second chance' at a happy, healthy life.
The Sanctuary's mission is to provide all the animals it has offered refuge with the highest quality care and holistic, integrated treatments; whilst allowing them all the time and security that they need to heal and flourish.
The Sanctuary is currently home to pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, horses, ponies, dogs and cats.
Gunyah is currently going through a much needed expansion from 10 acres in the Yarra Valley to 130 beautiful lush acres at the foothills of the Strathbogie Ranges. Gunyah relies entirely on public support and all donations are greatly appreciated.
