We’d like to thank you all for visiting us this season and helping us generate funds to care for the 500 animals at the sanctuary. We look forward to seeing you all again when we re-open at the end of March!

Hopefield Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit organisation caring for around 500 sick, unwanted and mistreated animals. The sanctuary is based in Brentwood, Essex.

We care for a variety of animals including horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs etc. and more exotic animals such as reptiles, parrots and other aviary birds, raccoons and many more.

We have a tearoom on site which serves a range of delicious hot & cold drinks, cakes, sandwiches & baguettes, and other snacks. We also have a gift shop, and mini garden centre on site too!

As a small charity, Hopefield relies upon donations and support from volunteers to be able to continue this work. It is with thanks to the continued support of volunteers and supporters that we have been able to achieve our aims thus far.
