The aims of the ABC Animal Sanctuary are to rescue abandoned animals and animals in distress. The animals are then restored to health and rehabilitated if possible before looking for a new home. In some instances when the animals are very old or need permanent special diets or have personality disorders they are guaranteed a home for the rest of their life.

We try not to turn down any pets, unless we are absolutely full and those that canít be re-homed for any reason, just stay on in our retirement area.
