Ferne Animal Sanctuary is a charity dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals of all shapes and sizes. Taking in abandoned, neglected and abused animals, and finding them new forever homes. They rehome over 500 cats and dogs each year and provide refuge for over 300 animals who need somewhere safe to go for the remainder of their lives.
Ferne is based in Wambrook near Chard and is set in 51 acres of glorious Somerset countryside high in the Blackdown Hills.
Ferne was set up through the foresight of a local lady – the late Nina, Duchess of Hamilton & Brandon – who realised that men and women going off to war had no-one to take care of their animals and so would require a temporary refuge for them.
The Duchess put a call out on the BBC and legend has it that when she returned to her London home there were a number of cats and dogs on her doorstep and also a parrot!
