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

Visit Us

We've been taught to treat animals as commodities, hence the term livestock; and discriminate against all others but cats, dogs etc by only giving our love to the latter.

All animals deserve our love regardless of species.

Let's stop this discrimination and let love rule. It's time to unlearn what we've been taught and realise we've been lied to believe we need animal corpses and their secretions to survive. 

It's time to start connecting with and loving all animals around us.

You can start here at The Retreat. Visit us to become friends with cows, pigs, turkeys, horses, ducks, chickens and more to see that they are no different to a cat or dog. 

So be kind, it's easy.
