The sanctuary will use the money towards the winter's supply of hay and straw for the roughly 700 small critters it cares for including rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, pigs, rats, ferrets, chinchillas and turkeys.

The shelter has been closed to the public due to the pandemic.

"This is a huge win for us and your support has meant a world of difference. You have brightened up 2020 and looking forward, we wish everyone a very Happy New Year," Monod wrote.
