Animal Sanctuary Foundation

Animal Sanctuary Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that rescues, rehabilitates and cares for animals in need of care. Animal Sanctuary provides refuge for farm animals rescued from slaughter, abuse or neglect.

We are proud to be the first farm animal sanctuary in south western Poland (Lower Silesian Voivodeship).

Farm animals are often forgotten because they are treated and dismissed as a necessary cost of feeding the population. However, with the rising demand for food, many animals are neglected, abused or unnecessarily killed.

Farmed animal sanctuary in Poland

As the first farm animal sanctuary in south western Poland, we want to stop the slaughter, abuse and neglect of farm animals and raise awareness of the true cost of meat production.

Animal Sanctuary Foundation will help farm animals in need by providing food, shelter, veterinary care, rehabilitation and a "forever home".

Our Vision

Animal Sanctuary Foundation's vision is to provide quality care for all types of farm animals while educating people about animal welfare issues, and sustainable and alternative farming.

What is the Animal Sanctuary Foundation?

We work with animal shelters and rescues to provide a sanctuary for farm animals. Where possible, we try and rehome small animals (e.g. rabbits and chickens) as pets with a loving and caring family. However, most animals stay with us until their natural death.

Unlike some animal charities, we aren't an overpopulated animal shelter with tiny cages, nor are we a soulless fundraising operation. Animal Sanctuary Foundation's primary and only focus is to ensure our animals lead happy and healthy lives.

Animals at our animal sanctuary have plenty of safe space, and our volunteers and vets ensure that we meet their dietary and medical needs.

How you can help

We are in the process of registering Animal Sanctuary Foundation as a charitable foundation in Poland. Once this is complete, our animals and sanctuary will begin accepting donations and recruiting volunteers.

If you love animals and want to help animals in need, we will be recruiting volunteers in the following roles (some are remote):
