Trustees

Ferne Animal Sanctuary was established in 1939 to care for the animals of people who went away to war. After the war many of the owners sadly did not return and Ferne took care of the animals left with them for the rest of their lives.

Today Ferne provides sanctuary for over 300 animals at its home in Somerset. We also re-home approximately 500 cats and dogs each year.

We are looking for people who have the experience to work at Board level and we encourage applications from all backgrounds, genders and ethnic groups.

We are looking to appoint a Trustee with a legal background. Preferably with experience of working in the charity sector, however, we would welcome applications from individuals with legal expertise in any field.
