Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats
|Donate to Buttercups:|
|Welcome to Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats|
Buttercups is a Kent-based sanctuary for goats, caring for between 130 and 150 goats resident in the sanctuary at any one time and with a similar number of goats fostered out to approved carers.
The goats in the care of Buttercups come to the sanctuary for a multitude of different reasons. Some have been found abandoned and are brought to the sanctuary by organisations such as the RSPCA and the Police. Others have been privately owned pets but, as they grow up they need an environment with more space and the company of other goats, goats being highly social animals. Other residents of Buttercups have been used for scientific testing.
Whatever their history, the goats at Buttercups are assured of warm, dry and clean stabling, a healthy and varied diet, and plenty of safe space for grazing and exercise.
Here are some of the more popular ways that you can help to support the goats at Buttercups.
Winter Welly and Waterproof days
The first Sunday in each month from November to April, 10am to 3pm. (Next day is Sunday 4th Jan 2015)
These are days for visitors who are content to just observe the goats in their home surroundings and to see them relaxed, playing and grazing. Nothing organised, you will see us as you find us, but it's another great opportunity to come and see the goats, only this time while they are wearing their winter coats. Members of staff and volunteers will be at hand to show you around the stables and can introduce you to some of the goats, while informing you of the work at Buttercups. You may well see the Sanctuary at work with volunteers cleaning, and looking after the goats welfare, grooming and perhaps giving the occasional bath. Hot and cold drinks are available on the day.
Entrance is by donation. Please do not bring food for the goats. Suitable and safe food for them is for sale on the day.
For more details on these and all of our events this year, please go to our Events page.
