Precedent: Hillside Animal Sanctuary, Norwich.
Founded in 1995 to help and campaign for animals in need, to bring public awareness to the millions of animals suffering every day in the intensive factory farming industry. Sanctuary to over 2000 animals, most rescued from the farming industry.
They gain funding through having open days and visitors with a gift shop, animal friendly cafe and the ability to adopt the animals. On a more serious note they carry out farm & animal investigations into cruelty, which have been featured on television and resulted in several convictions.
