Every month The Cruelty Free Shop helps an animal group fundraise by featuring a rescued animal and their sanctuary as our Charity of the Month - more information below....


Al & Tom's story is a particularly horrible one, they were being kept to be used as bait for hunting dogs. They had spent their entire lives in small cages housed next to the dogs who attacked them and were subjected to horrific abuse. Fortunately they were rescued by caring people and taken to safety at Hart Acres Animal Haven. Al & Tom arrived traumatised and petrified of everything. 

It has been very rewarding to see these boys find their place at Hart Acres.  At first, they would hide whenever people came near and cower at the sound of a closing gate. Now they try to crawl up on their human carer's leg to get to treats! They are full of joyful mischief and manage to get into everywhere they shouldn't! Al and Tom are now able to spend their days basking in the sun and roaming paddocks free from harm, free from fear and forever loved.

Hart Acres is a haven for abandoned and abused animals to be rehabilitated and live, long and happy lives. The sanctuary is reliant on donations to continue their wonderful work for animals so please consider adding a donation to Hart Acres to your next Cruelty Free Shop order.
