Welcome to Redgate Farm Animal Sanctuary

Redgate Farm Animal Sanctuary was founded in August 1986 at Shaw Lane, Markfield, Leicestershire by the Redmile family.

All the Animals in the care of the Sanctuary need support, we have many cats, rabbits as well as some rodents who are all looking for their new forever homes. We also have ducks and chickens looking for kind new homes too. For our permanent, elderly and sick animals at the sanctuary, there are many ways in which you can help them. You can do this by becoming a friend of Redgate, or Sponsoring an animal, or if you feel you can help more, please contact the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary is open to visitors 7 days a week between 10am to 4pm (except Christmas day).

Cat food donations

As we have a number of senior cats currently in the sanctuary we would really appreciate donations of 'senior' cat food. Our older feline friends require additional nutrients and a more tailored diet to compliment their changing lifestyles. Dry or wet cat food would help us greatly.
