Some people wonder why we help animals in need, personally I wonder why THEY wonder. There is nothing so rewarding, healing and meaningful as to mend a broken life, to restore happiness where fear have leached in to the bones of a sentient being due to heinous acts of cruelty, all in all this as much to do with Human Wrongs as it is to do with Animal Rights.

Be part of the change. Support the rescue and provide us with what we need to ensure a healthy, happy and long life.

The Retreat 6th Anniversary weekend – BORN FREE two litter of PIGLETS

BORN FREE

The Retreat 6th Anniversary weekend – BORN FREE two litter of PIGLETS

The sixth anniversary weekend at the retreat was packed with people from all over the globe, activists and animal lovers who had travelled from Toronto from Belfast amongst other places to enjoy events, good company, great food and music and of course to spend time with the animals living at The Retreat.

The Retreat is unique,  as a fully vegan animal rescue the volunteers are clear on the value of their work and the whole operation is ethically excellent. with Over 1250 animals currently in their care, the volunteer network is essential to meeting all the animals demands.

The high point of the anniversary weekend was the birth of two litter of piglets, born free.

001 002 003 004 005

These piglets were born at The Retreat, the evening of Friday 28th Sept 2018, filmed on the 29th, at an anniversary weekend Open Day. Another set were born to another mum on the same evening.

Both gave birth in the night. NONE will be exploited by humans for any purpose, have a wonderful life all of you.

The families will have their own little paddock. The two mum’s are called Dianne and Autumn. They were straying in woods with the father ( of both litter swe presume) and a baby from her last litter Seven new born babies safe after being dumped in the wild to fend for themselves.

WINTER IS HERE at the RETREAT – Feed them all – Fundraising NOW !

WINTER IS HERE at the RETREAT – Feed them all – Fundraising NOW ! Reg Charity 1105654

In looking to be part of building a more enlightened world where humans remember their dignity and show compassion and love to all others, regardless of sex, race, age, gender, disability or species; the Retreat finds the continued exploitation, abuse, bullying, violence against and murder of animals in today’s society totally degrading and unacceptable and work tirelessly to help the voiceless make it past the last chance.

There are over 1250 animals at the retreat, the founders and volunteers rescue these animals from abuse, neglect and privation and provide them with a forever home. A fully Vegan sanctuary, this is the last stop in their life line for without rescue centres, there is no tomorrow for these animals.

Winter is on them and at 700 pounds a week to cover feed let alone general supplies, the Retreat needs to widen its net of support. With that in mind FISHINABOX have joined the fight to “FEED THEM ALL”. We need you to do the same.
