Adopt an Aspens Animal Today!

Help us maintain our site and support our work


People attending our day services Acorns look after our donkeys, alpacas, pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, goats and our brand new additions Charles and Camilla our resident Emus! They learn about caring, feeding, cleaning & grooming and find it very therapeutic as it is calming, soothing and rewarding. Our animals always prove a popular attraction for visitors, too.


Adopt an animal with Aspens and you’ll be helping us to support not only the animals, but will also enable us to give valuable experience and life skills to those we support. Your adoption will help us continue our vital work and keep this unique opportunity for local families to come and enjoy our animals.

Adopt an animal as a fantastic and unique gift for animal lovers in your life. Choose from our range of adoption animals below;  from goats to emus and alpacas!
