THE RETREAT ANIMAL RESCUE
A BRIEF HISTORY
The Retreat was born out of frustration of the way the human race treat animals. Four like minded people with the support of many others started to lay the foundation of a rescue centre which would help save tormented, abused, sick, injured and unwanted animals from a certain death. The idea was whatever the animal whatever it's need no animal would be turned away. Some of our permanent residents include ex race horses, old riding school ponies, injured live export sheep, ex petting farm goats, road traffic accident birds, ferrets, Christmas turkeys, worn out battery hens and unwanted pets as presents.

The Retreat offers much needed support to all animals domestic and wild. Although over the years our family has grown, we are not a Sanctuary. Some of our animals we do not or cannot home, so they become residents at the The Retreat. Our aims are to educate the public that animals need commitment like other members of the family. That all animals should be neutered and that all animals taken on should be given the home and commitment they require. By re-homing animals that come into our care we can provide much needed space to rescue more abused animals. All animals are given the time, veterinary care and love they need to recover before being homed. If a suitable home can not be found no animal is ever killed, they simply stay at The Retreat for the rest of their lives.
Everyone who works at The Retreat gives their time voluntarily and therefore all money that is donated or brought in through fund raising activities goes towards the animals well being. As with all rescue projects, money is always needed. The yearly running costs increase with every animal so we are always looking for new ideas to fund raise. The rescue relies on the animal loving public to continue it's crucial work. Donations however small are always welcome.
LONG TERM GOAL
We are hoping to provide the facility where we can have our own vet on site to provide low cost castrations to horses and farm animals.
