Our seeds of compassion are growing!

Little Oak Sanctuary Incorporated is a not-for-profit, registered charity that offers sanctuary to animals in need while promoting compassion for all animals through education and cruelty-free living.

Since we started in 2013 we have saved hundreds of animals, shared their stories and brought the plight of animals in Australia to the streets of Canberra via our "Moving Connections" bus campaign.

Having outgrown our previous home, we have recently acquired a magnificent new property that will allow Little Oak Sanctuary to continue to grow, share the stories of our residents and the plight of animals in Australia!


Our new property is 11 times larger than our previous property - it will allow us to take in many more animals, ensuring they all have the best environment possible so they can lead rich and rewarding lives as they advocate for their kind.

Winter is coming!

There might not be white walkers, but winters in our region can be bitterly cold! We've already experienced several nights below -5 C but our region can easily and regularly get down to minimums of -8 to -10 degrees celcius, and snow is not unheard of.




We need shelters and stables for snuggling!

The sanctuary desperately needs shelters to be constructed to ensure all of our residents have safe, warm and dry places to snuggle when those cold winds blow. It is also vital for our operation that we construct some stables that will allow us to have a secure, warm and dry place for any sick, injured, weak or young animals who arrive with us over the winter months.

At Little Oak our mission is to provide sanctuary for injured, orphaned, neglected or abused animals, to ensure they have the best possible environment to express themselves thus allowing them to be the best possible advocates for their kind.

Having this next phase of infrastructure constructed will allow us to really fulfill this mission. It will mean instead of turning away injured or frail animals whom we are unable to house appropriately, that we can open our arms and our hearts to them, helping them gain strength and wellness and sharing their stories with the public.




You can join us

We need your help to get this project off the drawing board and into our paddocks! To cover the construction of 6 shelters and our stables, and to get our phased Poultry Paradise well underway, we will need to raise $25,000.

Each 4x4m shelter costs $3,435 - with six shelters required this totals $20,610

Our two 5x4m stables are being constructed within an existing shed to save on costs. To construct this vital part of our sanctuary it will cost $5,535 plus costs for concreting the floors and building yards outside the stables.

As you can see our costs for this project are above $25,000, but we have set the target as low as possible!

Please join us and help us reach this target!
