About Willows Animal Sanctuary

Willows Animal Sanctuary is a pleasing place to visit animals with children of all ages, with a firm educational backbone because of the valuable work they do there.

This amazing rescue operation is a sanctuary for Horses, Donkeys and Miniature Ponies; Sheep, Pigs, Goats and Rabbits; Peacocks, Turkeys and Chickens; plus Reptiles and their glaring of over 60 rescue cats!

The adventure playground with swings, slides and ride on toys is free to use! Plenty of things for under 8s to enjoy and get their exercise on.

Young kids particularly love Bunny Land, their dedicated safe space for rescued rabbits and the cool Beastie Hoose which is full of things like snakes and terrapins. All told there are over 300 animals to visit with, all with inspiring rescue stories teaching them the importance of treating the animal friends with care and respect.

Elsewhere on-site you can also find a nice little second-hand bookshop, a photographic art gallery, gift shop, Tack Shop and the Curious Cat Coffee Shop too with hot and cold drinks and snacks. You can find them on the B9093 road between New Pitsligo and Strichen amidst some really lovely countryside.

This place charges very minimally and thrives on donations, a worthy cause for a little of the kids' pocket money should they feel the urge so maybe take it along on the sly so they can ask you but get their own! It is a good cause after all: better than spending it on gummy bears!
