Big V Sanctuary

is creating a safe haven for farmed and companion animals




per month


Our vision is to create a safe and peaceful world for all our rescued residents no matter what species they belong to, a world characterised by gentle and loving care, dignity and respect.

Big V Sanctuary was founded in 2011 and is a registered non-profit association located in Châteauponsac, France. We rescue farmed animals and offer them care, love and peace at our sanctuary, while treating them with dignity and respect for the individual characters that they are. We nurse them back to health as many of them are former victims of abuse and neglect. In some cases we are able to place them in loving forever homes and in other cases they spend the rest of their lives in our care. We also offer sanctuary to companion animals enabling them to recover from mistreatment and then find loving foster homes where they can safely spend their remaining years.

Our aim is to provide for each individual a safe and loving environment in which they can live out a long and fulfilling life, whilst experiencing care and compassion towards their needs, to treat them as we would wish to be treated and to be pain-free and calm when the time comes naturally for them to exit this world. We strive to offer an environment which allows people to connect with the animals and recognise them as sentient individuals who deserve to be treated with respect and kindness. We invite people to spend time with us, help us and work alongside us in order to understand and appreciate the commitment of becoming an animal guardian.

We advocate animal rights within all aspects of our lives and extend invitations to eat with us at the sanctuary. Our goal here is to advance veganism and encourage others to appreciate that all life is precious. We are active animal advocates who fight for animal rights in conjunction with other social justice movements.

By becoming a patron of Big V Sanctuary you will be supporting the ongoing care of our rescued animals, you will help towards the rescue of more abused and mistreated individuals and you will assist us in our work of promoting veganism and animal rights. With your kind donations we will also be able to increase our reach via various social media platforms, YouTube and on-the-ground activism. All of this results in saving more precious lives.

Rescue. Rehabilitate. Educate. 

With grateful thanks for your kind support

$1200 per month will allow us to meet the cost of feeding our current residents. This is a particularly crucial cost during the long winter months.
