Welcome To Ferne Animal Sanctuary

Until further notice, sadly we are now closed. In the meantime, our fantastic Animal Care Team will be looking after our animals, so a huge thank-you to all of them. Our animals will miss your friendly faces, so we hope we will see you all again very soon. We will keep you updated here on how they are all doing. Thanks for your support and please stay safe.

In a time like this, please know that we need your support more than ever. Please consider making a donation or supporting us monthly by becoming a Friend of Ferne, thank you!

Thank you for your support, and please take care of yourselves and each other.
