Learn More About Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats

Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats was established by Robert Hitch in 1989, when he took in two goats from the RSPCA. Before long goats who had been suffering from cruelty, neglect and starvation, or simply abandoned by the roadside or no longer wanted, began arriving in such numbers that the charitable status was sought in order to secure the long term future of the Sanctuary.

The Charities Commission gave this status in September 2003 and still today Buttercups is the only registered goat Charity in the United Kingdom. The sole aim of the charity is to provide relief to goats that have suffered or no longer have a home.
