Celebrate World Animal Day with Remus

Join the animals, staff and volunteers for our last Open Day of the 2023 season and celebrate World Animal Day with us on Sunday 1 October from 1pm to 4pm. Disney’s character Mickey Mouse, will also be visiting during the afternoon!

World Animal Day, officially 4 October, has become a global celebration for all animals and the people who love and respect them.  It’s known on every continent and celebrated in different ways in many countries, with no regard to nationality, religion or political ideology.

This year’s theme is ‘Great or Small, Love them All’, which we think is pretty perfect!

Founder of the Sanctuary, Sue Burton, says: “Here at Remus Horse Sanctuary we are proud to celebrate and support this global movement to raise the status of animals everywhere at our Open Day.

“World Animal Day makes a vital difference all over the world and It’s obviously close to our hearts here at the Sanctuary.”

Visitors are welcome at the Sanctuary from 1pm to 4pm and can enjoy meeting the 200+ animals and learn more about what the charity does. There will also be a variety of activities for the whole family, such as up close magic, facepainting, music, and many stalls to browse. Parking is available on-site, with disabled access, and dogs are of course welcome on a lead. Refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon. Entry is just £6 for adults and £4 for children.

The Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and care for around 200 animals, including horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep and cats, and has been doing so since it was founded in 1983.
