A foal at Ferne Animal Sanctuary

2022 will see dogs appearing all around Exeter in our first ever city-wide Art Trail!

From May to August 2022, our fabulous 5ft dogs will be found all around the city, these unique, eye catching sculptures will really stand out and are sure to draw a crowd!

As well as raising awareness and understanding of the responsibilities of pet ownership and essential funds for Ferne Animal Sanctuary, these sculptures will also be promoting Exeter as a forward-thinking dog friendly city with sustainable transport and encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle.
