The Retreat was born, over ten years ago, out of frustration at the way the human race treat animals. A rescue centre ,which would save tormented, abused, sick, injured and unwanted animals from certain death was therefore founded.
The Retreat, based in northwest Kent, is entirely voluntary and a not-for-profit organisation, with all the trustees and most of the volunteers being vegan. All funds raised go to the welfare of the animals that come into the Retreat's care and where possible animals are re-homed in permanent, loving homes. The Retreat operates a no-kill policy.
Some of our residents include ex-race horses; ex-riding school ponies; injured live export sheep; ex-petting farm goats; injured birds; ferrets; Christmas turkeys; worn-out battery hens; old, feral and FIV cats; and dogs who have failed behaviour tests in other dog homes.
