Take to the Trails for Ferne

Ferne has provided refuge to unwanted and abandoned animals for over 80 years and is home to over 300 domestic and farm animals. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals which through no fault of their own, find themselves in need of some care, attention, and a safe helping hand.

Each year we rehome approximately 250 cats and dogs, all of which receive the treatment, care, and love they need to enable them to live a happy life in their new forever homes.

Whether youre a fitness fanatic or a steady stroller, our Trails for Tails 250km challenge is a great way to get active whilst raising vital funds for the animals in our care. Your participation can provide more tail-wagging moments for pooches experiencing their new forever home, or gentle purrs for the cats sleeping on a soft blanket for the first time. Whatever your reason for taking part, you will be making an incredible difference to the animals at Ferne.

Help animals like Bueno

Bueno was brought to Ferne as a stray, very malnourished and with a nasty skin infection. Our dedicated Animal Care team nourished Bueno to a healthy range for a cat his size and gave him antibiotics and pain relief for his extensive sores.

With time, Buenos skin started to heal, and he put on good weight. He is a real favourite amongst the team, who worked hard to nurse him back to health.

Bueno didnt have a voice to ask for help when he was cold and alone outside, but because someone spoke for him, he was given the second chance that every animal deserves.

Your participation will ensure that we are always there for animals in need like Bueno.

About the charity

For the last 80 years Ferne has been providing care and refuge for unwanted and abandoned animals in the South West of England. Located in Somerset we are home to over 300 long-term residents, and rehome cats and dogs within a 40 mile radius.
