The BFAS Story

Intro to BFAS...

...BFAS | Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary mainly rescues farmed animals, though it takes in any animal of any species in need of help. 

  • Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary, or 'BFAS' for short was established in 2005.
  • BFAS became a registered charity in 2008, and is run entirely by volunteers.
  • BFAS is probably one of the first animal sanctuaries in the UK to be run exclusively by Vegans (although you don't have to be Vegan to volunteer for us!) - just thought we would mention that! Anyone can volunteer for us. As long as you are fit, able bodied and willing to maybe muck out a few of the enclosures when needed, etc, then feel free to volunteer for us. Help is always VERY much appreciated, and we know the animals will love to see new faces and have extra scratches and cuddles!
  • We receive no secure funding and any form of public donation is essential to ensure the viability of the sanctuary.
  • BFAS rescues over 2,500 animals a year, the majority of which are rehomed into loving homes, some need rehabilitating, releasing back into the wild, and others stay with us for life. 
  • Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary is dedicated to caring for animals. To rescuing them from cruelty, hardship, and neglect. To ensure they live out the remainder of their natural lives in the optimum physical and psychological comfort. Rehoming them when possible but always overseeing their care. 
  • We have a non destruct policy except on veterinary advise and where all else has failed.

 

Our Mission

Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary is dedicated to caring for animals. To rescuing them from cruelty, hardship, and neglect. To ensure they live out the remainder of their natural lives in the optimum physical and psychological comfort. Rehoming them when possible but always overseeing their care. We have a non destruct policy except on veterinary advice and where all else has failed.

Our Animals

We have a non-destruct policy except on veterinary advice and where all else has failed. In some instances, where the animals have special needs, very old, or have personality disorders, we guarantee them care and protection, as well as a home with us for the remainder of their lives. Animals we deal with include the following but are not limited to: dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, ponies, goats, sheep, pigs, cows, chickens, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, all kinds of wildlife, and much more!
