Welcome to Redgate Farm Animal Sanctuary

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

We are an animal shelter that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes a variety of animals in need. We advocate neutering your pets to protect them in the future, that is why we never rehome a cat or kitten without neutering it first.

All the Animals in the care of the Sanctuary need support, we have many cats, kittens, rabbits and poultry who are all looking for their new forever homes. For our 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 and Sponsoring an animal, or if you feel you can help more, please contact the Sanctuary.

If you have an animal that you need to handover to us please call 01530 243925 to speak with a member of staff or email [email protected]
