The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary

The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary Ōtaki offers neglected, injured and abused animals a safe haven, and a new chance at life. At our vegan sanctuary in Ōtaki Forks, we care for around 150 rescued animals, including pigs, goats, sheep, roosters, geese, cows, horses, ducks, hedgehogs, guinea pigs and rabbits. Our work involves educating our communities about animal rights and protection, and where possible we rehome animals to loving permanent homes. We are a refuge where animals live in peace and security, in the company of others of their kind.

Farm Watch

Farmwatch serve as a voice for animals by investigating and exposing cruelty, and rescuing animals in need of care. Animals experience feelings very similar to our own and deserve to live a natural life, free from suffering and slaughter. We work to create a future where all animals are treated with the compassion and respect they deserve. Exposing the reality of animal industries is essential to show the consuming public how farmed animals are bred and killed.
