Let's Make A Change
Donations are used towards animal feed, rescue and animal-specific equipment, and veterinary costs. We rescue animals that are domesticated, wild or farm within a range of 50 miles from our centre. We then look after them and help them feel safe until we find them a forever home. We have rehomed hundreds of animals so far. Animals that don't find a home, stay with us here at the Retreat.
Here are some ways you can donate:
For one-off big or small donations. Every little makes a huge difference to us. [if button doesn't work, pls send donation to ]

Let's double in size
With 1,250+ animal residents and 20,000+ animals saved over our 30 years of operation, there's land on sale next to The Retreat and we have to double in size so we can help many more animals! For them.
All they need is your help <3
Thank you so much for your help!!
proudly sponsors The Retreat
MAD Ideas marketing and design is proud to sponsor the build of the Retreat’s washrooms and educational signage.
MAD Ideas says: "We loved creating the new signs with Billy which include a combination of fun and interesting facts about each animal and what people can do to help them. It shifts people’s perception of seeing animals as products or machines - but recognising each as an individual. Overall, we designed, created copy for and produced around 100 signs.
It was great to meet everyone including the pigs who behave just like dogs and love nothing more than some t.l.c and a good belly rub; Bill, the charming Turkey who loves to be involved in everything; Harrison, a gentle male calf destined to be killed at less than a month old because he was deemed a waste product by the dairy industry - to the timid ex-egg laying hens who have experienced terrible suffering and had their beaks seared off - all recovering and on their own journey of healing. It filled us with so much hope and joy meeting them and made us realise there is a real story behind each individual at The Retreat.
Here, every animal regardless of their species is welcome. The disabled and elderly are safe for the rest of their lives. It costs £500 a day to keep the Sanctuary going and it is run on a shoestring, relying on the generosity of the public and the care of volunteers.
We hope others will join The Retreat and MAD Ideas, supporting Billy’s life-saving and educational work. There are some great volunteering opportunities too and the Retreat always welcomes any help with painting, building paths, creating shelters for the animals, or generally giving the animals care, to sponsorships, fostering and even adoption to the right homes."
