Animal Buddies

Will you be a Buddy to one of our rescued animals and make a real difference? Friendships are made at The Retreat and never forgotten!

Maybe you've always wanted your very own horse, cow or pig but don't have the space or the time needed to fulfil that dream. At The Retreat we have over 1,000 animals and all need a Buddy...and it's easy...simply take out a sponsorship package that suits you and decide who you would like as your new animal friend.

Being a Buddy means you receive updates on your new friend and also invites to come along as our guest and spend some quality time together. Having a Buddy really makes a difference to the animals living at The Retreat. It's a win win situation - you get an amazing new friend and your Buddy's future is secured by your kind and generous support.

Buddy sponsorship starts at:

 £4 a month for ducks, chickens, turkeys and rabbits

 £6 a month for cats

 £12 a month for pigs, goats and sheep

 £15 a month for donkeys and ponies

 £25 a month for horses and cows

To become an Animal Buddy -

Please email Kathy via and put REQUEST TO BECOME AN ANIMAL BUDDY in the subject heading, clearly state in your email which animal(s) you are interested in being a Buddy for and briefly why.

We will then get in touch with you directly with the necessary details for you to become part of the magic that is Team Retreat.

We hope to hear from you soon.
