Registered Charity No
Raystede is a Sussex-based animal welfare charity, caring for around 2,000 local animals every year, giving them the chance to thrive through rescue, rehoming and rehabilitation. We care for a diverse range of animals, from dogs, cats and horses to alpacas, goats and exotic birds. And our dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly to make sure each one gets the happy life they deserve.
When an animal or bird is found neglected, injured or distressed, we take care of them. When they need a home, we help find loving new owners. And when the scars run too deep, we provide lifelong sanctuary to those who can’t be rehomed.
Raystede inspires people to respect and care for animals, through education in the community and the opportunity to visit our beautiful Sussex site.
It costs £2.5 million a year to provide this life-changing care. With no government funding, we rely entirely on donations and the generous support from the local community.
All injured and unwanted animals deserve their second chance. It is our mission and privilege to help make that happen.
