    Description

    Hello!

    We are a vegan Animal Sanctuary for rescued farm animals, situated in the gorgeous countryside of Somerset, South West England. We currently have over 100 animals, including goats, sheep, pigs, horses, hens, ferrets and others, who have come to us from horrible backgrounds, and who will now live out the rest of their lives in peace. We manage the sanctuary ourselves, with the help of our incredible workawayers, and a few regular local volunteers.

    Animal lovers only!

    Help

    We need workawayers to help us with the daily routine here on the sanctuary. Getting to know the animals, bringing them out of their stables each morning, cleaning out their stables, general maintenance around the place...and when you get the chance, spending time playing and socialising with the animals. There is always something to be done here!!

    If you have any particular strengths in BUILDING, CONSTRUCTION or FUNDRAISING, this would be an extra bonus!

    We also have 4 energetic dogs, who are always asking for a ball to be thrown...

From there you can visit Glastonbury, a really unique, spiritual and fantastic town! There is also a bus to the city of Bristol, which has lots of culture and great nightlife. There are lots of amazing walks around the area too.
