The story behind Chaldon Animal Sanctuary’s 20 Year Anniversary DVD
After Christmas 2010, Jacky said "Wouldn’t it be nice to update our video we made at the beginning, for our supporters to see the difference they have made over the years".
Jacky was absolutely right that it was a great idea but instead of being ready as intended for our actual 20 year anniversary in Easter, plans went a bit awry! We did make a start on it together during January but then it was put to one side of course ( Jacky died in February ). However I put the finishing touches to it to make it a worthwhile celebration of all that Chaldon has achieved.
My gratitude friends as well as to Caterham Valley Computers http://www.caterhamvalleycomputers.com/who have been wonderful with their help by donating and producing the copies of the Chaldon Anniversary DVD, thank you. They are a small local business with friendly and knowledgeable staff who are very helpful if you need computer items, repair or advice.
This is a home made film ( not David Attenborough style ! ) from video and photos I’ve taken over the years, a snapshot of our animals doing what they do - dog walks, goats, cows, chickens, cats etc. There is a chapter per year with a mixture of video clips if available ( one year we didn’t have a video camera ) and lots of photos as well. Of course the quality of the old photos etc is not brilliant but the quality does improve as the technology does.
I hope you enjoy sharing memories of Chaldon’s pets from the first 20 years.

If you want something special to put in your home this Christmas, perhaps to remember a loved one no longer with you, pet or human but also by supporting Chaldon and giving heart, hope and courage to those who arrive here for a fresh start in their lives.
Phoenix fur heart hanging decoration
As featured in Dog’s Today December 2016
£10 per heart.
Please remember to include your address when you pay. Any questions, just e-mail me -
The fur is from Phoenix my German Shepherd and Pat, a crafty friend has made the resulting wonderful needle felted hearts with it and then embellished them with beads and decorative sewing on the front, with a material backing, filled with kapok plus a hanging thread. They vary in size ( approx 4” ) and colour ( red,blue,pink,orange) so it’ll be a surprise which you get as every one is individually handmade. These are a Limited Edition and we have no idea how popular these will be so it’s first come, first served ( payment will be returned if we’ve run out ).
