Hopefield Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit organisation that cares for and provides a home for life for over 500, unwanted and mistreated animals based in Brentwood Essex for 35 years.

Hopefield care for a variety of animals including horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, alpacas, ducks, cats, raccoons and raccoon dogs, exotics, reptiles and small furries. We have a lovely tea room offering drinks, soups, sandwiches and cakes, as well as a small children 'little tykes' play area and various activities on our open days and events throughout the year.
