The Animal Sanctuary is a haven for all animals, with a focus on three main areas of work:
We rehabilitate and release native New Zealand birds back into the wild.
The Animal Sanctuary is a permanent home and refuge for abandoned, abused, and forgotten animals.
We rehabilitate and rehome ex-battery hens throughout the Auckland region.
The Sanctuary is an animal refuge run by Shawn Bishop and Michael Dixon in Matakana, New Zealand. We provide a safe haven for abused and neglected animals, and care for injured or orphaned native birds. A charitable trust has been established for this purpose.
