The Retreat offers much needed support to all animals - farmed, domestic and wild.

© 2019 by The Retreat Animal Rescue. Registered Charity: 1105654


Our daily running costs excl. vets are £500


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:

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
