Friend Animal Foundation was founded in 1997 by the late Jean Friend as an animal sanctuary for all domestic pets and livestock that were unwanted, abandoned or given up for various reasons.
We operate from premises in Tynwald formerly known as Filippa's Kennels and can be contacted on 2926248, 023 816804 and 0913 429152 (phone numbers in the book have not worked since August 2006!).
We are open 365 days of the year and our opening hours are 8 am to 5 pm - closed for lunch between 12 - 1.
We re-home dogs and cats to approved homes and have old age homes for dogs and cats too. We have an open farmyard with animals ranging from guinea pigs to donkeys and including a large and grumpy pig. We also have a boarding facility too.
We often host school visits - both the animals and the children enjoy the extra attention and it gives the children the opportunity to learn about owning and looking after a pet. We welcome all visitors
