Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary is based in Warwickshire, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. A few miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon, this wonderful animal sanctuary was established single-handedly by Carole Webb in 1988. Woolly Park is currently home to more than 400 farm animals, however, at its peak, Carole cared for over 800 animals at one time.

We’re in a desperate situation with our poly tunnel being so badly damaged from this awful weather. Our residents are in need of a new cover urgently, judging by the awful weather forecast ahead over the next few days. The downpour is already started today, leaving us with deep concern for these residents, especially the more vulnerable ones.

Just to make you aware, whilst the recent crowd-funder has been such a great success, with all your extra donations, (for this we thank you so very much), the downfall is that the funds for this can only be used to fulfil the pathways plan as agreed. In hindsight had we predicted this, we could have planned with this in mind. But we didn’t, and so here we are appealing to everyone to help us in any way you can.






 The animals residing at the sanctuary come from far and wide, having arrived in various states of health, many having been rescued from dreadful cruelty and, or poor living conditions. Some are well loved pets, whose owners, due to unforeseen circumstances can no longer  care for them, whilst others have escaped the horrendous Live Export Trade. These though, are the lucky few, who are fortunate to land at the doorstep of  Woolly Park, greeted by Carole with open, loving arms.  Sadly, the majority are left to cope, for as the need to profit increases, so man’s compassion lessens and the victims continue to suffer. Whether they are exhausted cull ewes that have been forced to breed beyond any capacity that nature intended, or animals badly injured due to careless and rapid loading onto ill-designed transporters, these animals have suffered a lot and they deserve the peace they now enjoy. 
These emotionally, intelligent creatures are too often dismissed as stupid and worthless and yet they show remarkable affection and gentleness once their fear has been dispelled. They are also equally capable of forming loving bonds with human beings, just like any householdpet.


Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary’s mission is to provide a safe and peaceful environment where rescued animals can remain for the rest of their lives. Veterinary care and medication is provided as required and all animals in our care are constantly monitored to ensure their good health and well being. We never implement euthanasia unless it is advised by our vet as a total necessity.


Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary is managed by founder Carole Webb, as a non-profit organisation. To ensure the needs of the animals are taken care of, and to guarantee the continual upkeep of the sanctuary, we have two workers, who alongside many enthusiastic volunteers help Carole with some of the more arduous tasks. With hundreds of animals in our care and a progressive, ongoing plan to upgrade and improve the facilities at Woolly Park, our annual and monthly running costs are very high.

We are solely dependant on the support and generosity of a sympathetic public to help fund the sanctuary. Our continual work in caring and reaching out to farm animals in need of help is at this present time ceaseless. The treatment of other living beings for profit and gain has to be one of the greatest immoralities of this century, however, we know through the power social media has given to the masses, many are waking up to the evil truths behind the food industry and taking action through a change in their diets, signing petitions and protests. We also know, because of the increase in rescues, saving animals from the torrid lives they are being forced to live, or the slaughter they would have to face, sometimes at less than three months old. Our commitment to  protecting  farm animals and raising awareness to the many issues linked to their welfare, is the sanctuary’s overriding objectives, but, once again, it is only through the ongoing kindness, charity and goodness of Woolly Park’s supporters. We run a tight ship at the sanctuary, united in one goal, to assist Carole Webb in her life long devotion and relentless pursuit in helping these defenceless creatures.
