Sue is always looking for support and sponsorship for her Snake Sanctuary, there is no funding available for animal causes, private donations and bookings keep the sanctuary running. It costs £6000 per year to run.
All of the rescue snakes are kept at Sue’s home, many people like to come to visit and young people love to help care for them. By relocating we made it possible for more people to visit. Young people learn animal husbandry and social skills by working with Sue and her reptiles – more youngsters can now come for work experience and the animals can continue to be self supporting by generating income.
