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!
Please note - we are only looking for volunteers who can stay for 1 month or longer.

You will have a unique insight into life in Somerset, a beautiful part of England. The land here is really peaceful, calming and special. Many people who come to visit us leave with a lasting sense of relaxation.
You also get the chance to hang out with and get to know all of our beautiful animals!
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!!
Please note that this is a very independent role. We are always here to support and provide full training, but this is not a place for those who are looking to socialise a lot with humans - however, there are lots and lots animals to spend as much time with as you like!!
We also have 4 energetic dogs, who are always asking for a ball to be thrown...
Workaway accommodation is a small converted barn with a fridge and electricity. There is a shower and toilet available to use in the house.
For summer months we also have a small caravan within the sanctuary grounds, with a little kitchen including a gas cooker, a fridge and electricity. There is also the possibility of camping in a bell tent.
You will be provided with a food budget to prepare your own meals.
Please note - we are a vegan household and do not allow any meat or dairy onto the sanctuary, in respect of the animals who live here
Our place is in a rural location, about 5 minutes drive from Wells. We are more than happy to pick you up and take you to Wells when needed. We also have bicycles to borrow if you want. 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.
