Become a Friend of Ferne

With over 300 resident animals in our care, we always need a little help from our friends.

Every year we help hundreds of domestic pets, farm animals and horses whose owners can no longer look after them. When they first arrive, many of the animals need urgent medical attention, are malnourished, or are suffering from flea and worm infestations. Once they are fit and well we find new loving families for dogs and cats, and offer all of our animals a safe, warm home for as long as they need it. Many stay with us for the rest of their lives.

As a charity, we rely entirely on the generosity of people like you to support our work.
