Family fun at Margaret Green Animal Rescue

Every year Margaret Green Animal Rescue cares for over 1,200 animals, many of which were abandoned, unwanted or ill-treated, and rehome them to new, loving owners. We have a large variety of animals including cats, rabbits, donkeys, goats, pigs and horses. Come and meet them all at our Church Knowle Animal Sanctuary and Visitor Centre. Set in some of Dorset’s most beautiful scenery, you are free to enjoy a leisurely stroll around our centre whilst learning more about our work or enquiring about adopting an animal. Why not bring a picnic, spend a few hours and enjoy seeing for yourself the first-class care our rescue animals receive whilst they are with us. We also have a tea room and gift shop for you to enjoy. Our sanctuary is free to visit. A real fun family day out!
