Dean Farm Trust is a home for life to over 200 rescued animals living in 62 acres of pasture, woodland and paddocks in South Wales.
The animals are all from different backgrounds and situations which include: unwanted pets, neglect and abuse cases, animals rescued from slaughter, other charities and abandoned animals.
Many of the animals at the sanctuary are extremely vulnerable and need extra care and support, some receive daily medications and treatments, regular vet checks, homeopathic and alternative therapies and special diets. Each animal is treated as a complete individual with their own needs, they ensure not only their physical being is cared for but also their psychological well-being. Residents only live with other residents they get on with and give each other companionship and stimulation.
The sanctuary is run by a small team of staff and volunteers, all are dedicated to the welfare, comfort and safety of our residents ensuring they have quality of life. They work closely with their vets, farriers, consultants and other practitioners enabling them to make the right decisions at all times for the animals.
Dean Farm Trust relies entirely on donations, help from the local community and volunteers. They receive no government funding and have no fundraising or marketing departments. Their ability to rescue animals and offer a secure and safe life for them is dependent on monies that they raise.
The sanctuary has open days and events throughout the year, where public can come and meet everyone. I cant recommend it enough!
