About Us

Established in late 2017, our family-run, volunteer-supported rescue sanctuary is a 130-acre coastal paradise just north of Byron Bay, Australia. 

At our sanctuary by the sea we provide a safe haven for all sorts of rescued farm animals to rehabilitate with love and compassion and the best possible care…so that they can go on to live out their days in peace and kindness.

In addition to our permanent residents, our ongoing rescue efforts include providing emergency accommodation, foster care, and rehabilitation and rehoming of neglected, abused and unwanted individuals.

We are a registered Australian charity and are largely self-funded, but gratefully receive donations and volunteer help.

We also welcome visitors to The Owl & The PussyCat…there are always loads of furry and feathered friends waiting for you on arrival, so make sure you plan a visit soon.

Kindness & Compassion. Always.
