Welcome to Friend Farm Animal Sanctuary

Registered charity no. 1173318

We are a farm animal sanctuary located on a beautiful 10 acre site in rural Kent, UK. 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.

25 Year Anniversary Events

2019 is an exciting time for FRIEND as it marks 25 years of fighting oppression. To celebrate the rescue of over 2000 animals in that time, and to launch our 25th year we are thrilled to announce that we have some exciting events planned where you can come and meet the animals and explore the magic of the sanctuary.
