Cats and dogs are available for adoption/rehoming from Ferne within a 40 mile radius of the Sanctuary, subject to an approved homecheck.Ferne offers real support and wherever possible one of Ferne's Volunteer Home Visitors will visit adopters on an annual basis throughout the life of their pet. It is not a check on the adopters; it is the Sanctuary's way of reminding you that it is here to offer support. Should an unexpected change occur in an adopter's life which results in them being unable to continue to offer the cat/dog a home, the animal is guaranteed a place here at Ferne; it need never be homeless again.  

A minimum donation to help carry out the work of the Sanctuary is requested.

About us

Get in touch :


Ferne Animal Sanctuary has been saving the lives of unwanted and abandoned animals for over 70 years.
Your support will mean this vital work can continue.

Ferne Animal Sanctuary strives to provide care and refuge for unwanted domestic & farm animals. The Sanctuary rehomes dogs & cats within a 30 mile radius of Ferne. Some horses & ponies are available for permanent loan; all other animals remain at the Sanctuary for the rest of their lives. We rely entirely on donations & legacies to continue its work. Some of the animals come to Ferne because they have been neglected or are no longer wanted. Others come to us because of circumstantial changes of their owners. All animals are given the care, attention & TLC they need to enjoy a happy life while they are at Ferne.
