About Dean Farm Trust
Dean Farm Trust is a home for life to 180 rescued animals living in 62 acres of pasture, woodland and paddocks in South Wales.
Our animals come to us from all different backgrounds and situations which include: unwanted pets, neglect and abuse cases, animals rescued from slaughter, other charities and abandoned animals.
Many of our animals at the sanctuary are extremely vulnerable and need extra care and support, some receive daily medications and treatments, regular vet checks, homeopathic and alternative therapies and special diets. Each animal is treated as a complete individual with their own needs, we ensure not only their physical being is cared for but also their psychological well-being. Residents only live with other residents they get on with and give each other companionship and stimulation.
Our sanctuary is run by a small team of staff and volunteers, all are dedicated to the welfare, comfort and safety of our residents ensuring they have quality of life. We work closely with our vets, farriers, consultants and other practitioners enabling us to make the right decisions at all times for our animals.
Dean Farm Trust relies entirely on donations, help from the local community and volunteers. We receive no government funding – our ability to rescue animals and offer a secure and safe life for them, is dependent on monies we raise.
