Celebrating over 30 Years

Helping horses

since 1987

It's a pleasure to welcome you to Bolenowe Animal Sanctuary. We’ve worked hard to get to where we are today. We now have the ability to fulfil welfare related rescues and extremely needy cases, many of which have been seriously neglected.


Our experienced and highly skilled equine team work to bring incoming animals back to good health with love, care and nutritious food. The Bolenowe Animal Sanctuary was founded by Margaret Piper and registered in 1987.  As we move into our 31st year we are looking after over 70 horses and donkeys.


In 30 years we’ve come a long way, and there have been many changes in the way the Sanctuary is run. We’ve encountered many challenges, but no matter what we were faced with, we’re proud to say that we have succeeded in always providing for our rescued animals, even if it was just a new loving home.


I invite you to explore our website, learn more about our important work, and visit Bolenowe Animal Sanctuary as we are open to members of the public every Sunday between May and October, 11:00am - 16:00pm.


Best regards,

Valerie Blake
