  • Description

    Description

    The animal shelter was funded 2010 and is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. Since 2016 our farm is located in Wildon, only 20 minutes by car from Graz.

    Our motto is “For the love of life” and our mission is to take in abandoned, maltreated or saved animals, so they can enjoy the rest of their lifes peacefully. Our core value is respect and appreciation of existence in all its forms. We set ourselves the goal to enrich the life of both humans and animals.

    We give a home to old horses as well as other livestock such as cows, oxen, pigs, chickens, donkeys, goats, ponies, and sheep. There is also a lot of cats and dogs on the farm.
