Support Buttercups today by adopting a goat of your own!


For just £20, you can adopt one of our goats for 12 months, during which time your financial support will contribute towards the cost of caring for all of our rescued animals.  This could make an ideal gift, or even just a little something for yourself!

The initial adoption pack includes a certificate, postcard of and letter from your goat and a copy of our latest quarterly newsletter, with three subsequent newsletters sent throughout the following year to keep you up to date with all the latest goings on at the sanctuary.

Adopting a goat is simple. Choose your favourite from the goats below - each has a unique personality - and follow the steps.  You should then receive the adoption pack within one working week (if this is a gift, the pack can either be sent to yourself OR the gift recipient).

Please allow extra time for shipping outside the UK, which will cost an extra £5.00 for postage.

Sponsored Goat Visit

Lovely couple of hours spent relaxing amongst all the goats. The atmosphere is wonderful and you could honestly sit and watch them all day. Will happily come back with friends/family.

Best Relaxant Ever

I just love sitting, petting the very happy goats. If you are stressed it is the biggest stress reliever ever!!! Love that everything you spend money on will go towards looking after the goats. I will be visiting as often as possible.

Well Worth A Visit

Well worth a visit. Very child-friendly. Goats clearly loved and well cared for. Very hands-on experience for visitors. Helpful, cheerful staff. Had a lot of fun here.

A gentle sanctuary for goat and visitors

A lovely relaxing place. Great to see the Goats just roaming free. Plenty of willing goats looking for a gentle fuss, plus the opportunity to feed some of them if you purchase a bag of goat feed for £1. Definitely worth the visit.
