Charity No. 1173318
FRIEND is a farm animal sanctuary with nearly 200 animals. They find their way here through being unwanted, abused, neglected or abandoned. The sanctuary offers a free roaming (as far as possible and safe) home to chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, cows, goats, sheep and one alpaca who thinks he’s a sheep, on a 10 acre site nestled in between the orchards and hop farms of rural Kent. The 35+ pigs live in their own paddock with wallows.
We were established in 1994 and in the following 25 years we estimate that we have rescued upward of 2000 animals. Our mission is to offer a lifelong, no-kill, free-roaming, safe-haven to unwanted, neglected and abused non-human animals, while educating about animals, veganism and ecological sustainability. FRIEND relies solely on donations from members of the public. To support the sanctuary please consider becoming a monthly donor through Patreon, or by making a one-off donation to our 25th Anniversary Appeal.
*Please note: as the care for the animals at FRIEND keeps us busy throughout the day, we may not be able to pick up the phone when you call. If your message is not urgent, please consider writing to us.
