The Linjoy Sanctuary
In 2011 we opened our current sanctuary in Etwall. Named the 'Linjoy' after the founder Lindsay and and her nan, Joyce Barlow, the sanctuary is home to over 300 animals all of varying species including poultry, waterfowl, pigeons, rabbits, foxes, swans and other wild animals. Those animals that can not be returned to the wild but can live a good quality of life are provided sanctuary within our grounds. Injured animals are taken to the rescues hospital site in Burton on Trent.
Our Sanctuary is set in 4.5 acres of land in the countryside and is split into sections including a wildlife section , stables, four large paddocks and three smaller paddocks as well as a domestic animal section. We also have a pond with an island that is large enough to allow our waterbirds to have a good swim.
Below are just a few pictures of the sanctuary
