Who are Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries?

Goodheart founders, David Walker and Dwynwen Jones, care deeply about all animals and felt so strongly about doing something that they set up a brand new charity, Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries.



They wanted to create safe sanctuaries for rescued, abused and neglected animals. To generate a respect for all sentient individuals and also encouraged a better understanding, knowledge, and awareness of this important issue.

Supported by two experienced directors, Alison Hood and Anne Tudor (both of whom spent over 25 years’ working for the Born Free Foundation wildlife charity) Dave & DJ have put their passion into action.  By thinking big, Goodheart aims to change public opinion, raising its voice above the crowd and capitalising on a groundswell of change in the perception and treatment of animals. 

Goodheart have a dedicated farm animal sanctuary at
Nickless Farm in Shropshire.




So how does Goodheart help Wiccaweys?

Many years ago a couple came to Wiccaweys to adopt their first ever dogs, two brothers called Bosco & Rex. Bosco and Rex became Bob & Dylan, and those lovely first time adopters were DJ & Dave. Many more Wiccaweys canine family members joined DJ & Dave, especially Oldies who they have a passion for helping.

It had been a dream of ours that one day Wiccaweys would have it's own permanent premises, although without a lottery win it was a very distant dream.

In 2016, Dave, DJ & Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries made that dream come true when they secured Brackenmoor Lodge in Laughton, Lincolnshire for Wiccaweys use. Something we will be forever grateful for.

The Goodheart support doesn't stop there. In 2017 with the help of Goodheart we were able to employ full time and part time staff.

Goodheart have ensured a wonderful future for Wiccaweys, one that means in many, many years time, when Sarah and Paul have left this mortal world our beloved rescue will continue to help collies in need.

We are very proud and honoured to be
a Goodheart Animal Sanctuary
