Happy Endings Animal Rescue Sanctuary Charity Profile
Happy Endings Rescue is an animal charity based in Kent and East Sussex with a completely no-kill policy. It was set up in 2007 by vegans, Terry Kemp and Chris Johns, on the sad realisation that there simply were not enough spaces in existing rescue organisations across the country for the hundreds of animals that were being neglected and abandoned every day. Within just a year of starting up, we were lucky enough to take on 40 acres of retirement grazing near Sevenoaks in Kent. This is now home to many of our horses and our own flock of sheep, who can live out the rest of their days in peace and without worry or fear. Every day Happy Endings is growing. In November 2010, we were also fortunate to find for rental a wonderful house set in a beautiful and secluded corner of East Sussex complete with land and stables. We are now able to live on site and provide the extra care and supervision that some of our vulnerable animals require. This has been essential so that we can cope with the increasing numbers of animals that pass into our care every week. We are very proud to say that, since our small beginnings in 2007, we have been able to provide happy endings for hundreds of animals. the fate of whom would otherwise have been unthinkab The Happy Endings Philosophy Happy Endings are just what we want for all of the animals who come into our care, for however long we are lucky enough to have them. This is why we will not put to sleep any animal who comes to us, unless we are medically advised that it is absolutely in the best interests of the animal. Sadly, many of our residents have been rescued from unhappy, cruel and neglected pasts. Some of our permanent residents suffer from disabilities: some natural, some inflicted by past owners (unbelievable isn't it?). Those rescue animals for whom we are seeking new homes are in good health, usually neutered (where they are old enough to do so) and microchipped.
