VIRTUAL OPEN DAY SOON

Whilst we can’t wait to see you all we’re still acting on the side of caution at the moment, but hope to open our gates later in the summer.

In the meantime we are planning a virtual open day next month, with drone footage and lots of clips showing you all life here at FARS. We will announce the date shortly when we have all the details finalised. WATCH THIS SPACE!

How to support the animals

It currently costs around £90,000 per year to run. We never make a profit – everything is invested back into the animals. We are all so very grateful here at FARS for any size donation.

Another way to support us is by sponsoring one of our cheeky characters, purchasing from our Amazon or Ebay wish list, sign up to easy-fundraising which prompts the shops to donate everytime you purchase, or maybe purchase some of our ethically sourced branded merchandise from our online shop, all of which have been designed by our volunteers, so 100% of the profits go to the animals. You can send money via paypal, to our Emergency Covid-19 Hay and Feed appeal or BACS direct into our bank account:

What our volunteers say

We have a small very loyal team, that care deeply about all the animals. They all work so very hard to make sure each and every animal is cared for on a daily basis. Want to become part of our team?

ENQUIRE ABOUT BECOMING A VOLUNTEER
“I always wanted to undertake some meaningful voluntary work after retiring. Following a visit to FARS and meeting the wonderful happy animals, I quickly decided this was the place for me. Rain or shine I’m greeted at the front gate by one of the lovely cats (usually Sooty) or by a number of rescue hens, this is usually followed by a piggy welcome from both Dolly and Toby!”
Paul Garrison, Volunteer & Resident Artist
“I find my weekly volunteering so therapeutic. So rewarding to help at such a wonderful sanctuary and get to spend time around these amazing animals.

Love arriving to Dolly’s happy squeaks and her welcoming smile. The cats are always awaiting some fuss at the gate and Merrick’s always first in line for cuddles! It’s so good to be around likeminded animal lovers too. They’re all so very inspiring, dedicating so much of their time to these wonderfully friendly animals.”

Sarah Dekany, Volunteer & Designer

“I work with some wonderful caring people, the team at FARS under the leadership of inspirational founder Carole really are an amazing compassionate group, so committed to the giving all the animals a happy and stress free life.

While the work can on occasions be physically demanding and at present very muddy, the feel-good factor more than makes up for this. I would encourage anyone who has a few hours to spare each week to come along and join the team, you won’t regret it”

Paul Garrison, Volunteer & Resident Artist

“Helping at FARS has been a great experience, I have enjoyed getting to know not only all the gorgeous animals but the amazing volunteers too.

It is also a great way to get outside and get a bit of exercise and fresh air. It has also been fun to help with some vegan festivals and spread the word about the sanctuary.”
