Life coach Jean-Pierre De Villiers (JP) ran the equivalent of three marathons (79 miles!!) at the end of February in under 24 hours to raise money for FARS! To make it even more astonishing, he hadn't long recovered from a huge CRASH after being hit by a car while on [...]

We were in the Stratford Herald, here's what they wrote: When 76-year-old Carole Webb was taken into hospital after testing positive for Covid-19, it was one of the few times in decades that she was separated from her beloved animals… all 450 of them. The former veterinary nurse is the [...]
We just want to let our amazing supporters know what has been happening at the sanctuary. We apologise if messages have been missed or we have been a little quiet. Carole has been in hospital poorly with covid since Christmas, thankfully she is now back at home and on the [...]
It's been a busy week here at FARS. What with the new poly-tunnel cover being fitted and the avian influenza regulations, has meant we've had to create a completely enclosed home for our chickens. 2 of our volunteers have spent most of last week creating a chicken 'entertainment centre' - [...]

A few weeks ago, a ewe was brought to the sanctuary. She was in such poor condition and extremely thin. Obviously malnourished and in desperate need of treatment, Carole and the team began the slow process of healing this poor sentient being. Naming her Daffodil, after a few days of [...]
This week we welcomed two new piggies to the FARS family – ‘Little’ George and Penny! Due to illness, the owner of their previous sanctuary had to downsize. It was a heart-breaking decision for her to make, but now they have found a forever home with us. Come and meet [...]
