Had such an amazing time here. What a beautiful sanctuary and home for animals to have a second chance at life. You can tell how well loved they all are and how passionate and kind everyone is that works/volunteers here. I miss all of the animals already! Thank-you for a wonderful, educational experience and all you do for the animals!

Absolutely an amazing and magical place. Not just because of it's location and natural beauty, but because what it stands for. It's a small piece of paradise for abused animals. It shows that in our incredibly disturbed and twisted world, there are little pockets of love and compassion. And this is one of them. Please visit, please donate and please respect all animals.
This place is a must!

What an amazing place run by the most dedicated people and supported by many animal lovers. What better way for children from Brisbane and other urban areas to meet their animal friends in their natural habitat. My wholehearted admiration and respect to the dedicated people running FAR.

A brave new vegan world full of compassion and kindness is emerging and it is places like Farm Animal Rescue that are heralding in the change. Run selflessly and tirelessly by Brad King and Carol Slater, I can only imagine how many sleepless nights they've had caring for and saving animals in a way that most of us could not even believe possible. All of the wonderful souls that donate their money, time, energy and effort at FAR to create a better world for the animals are true unsung heroes. I have the deepest respect for you.

Be part of something special…

I love supporting FAR because they’re a charity that not only cares for, & does incredible work for the deserving residents at the sanctuary, but also because of the amazing work FAR does outside the sanctuary to raise awareness for the hundreds of thousands of farmed animals that will never know sanctuary.

The sanctuary residents

Each of the FAR residents is unique, with their own amazing story, personality, interests & relationships. All are ambassadors for the millions of farm animals in Australia that people do not care for, listen to or respond to.


This adventurous factory rescue loves to hang by the dams and dig many holes.



After arriving emaciated and dehydrated, Joannie has made an incredible recovery.



This little girl loves to sit and chat with the volunteers, but doesn’t really like pigs!



Rescued at the 11th hour from slaughter, this little bobby calf rescue is now very huge.



This little cutie was dumped but he is very much cherished here at FAR.
