More details

The Flicka Foundation is a registered charity based in South Cornwall, UK. It was founded by Mary Berryman in 1995, following the rescue and care of a neglected pony named 'Flicka'. 

Mary's daughter, Judy Giles, and Laurie Stephenson continue with the Flicka legacy as Directors. Their sanctuary site provides a safe home for over 100 donkeys and horses, all of whom have been rescued from situations of neglect, abuse and abandonment. The charity has rescued and rehabilitated over 700 animals since its inception and its equine residents are free to live out their days in peaceful retirement, with their specialised needs catered for by an experienced team.

Members of the public are welcome to visit year-round and the charity also provides donkey therapy sessions for people from all walks of life, who feel the benefits of being close to a donkey and forming a close relationship of trust and affection. Donkeys are sensitive creatures and their affection is boundless, which, in itself, is amazing considering all they have endured.

The charity relies on the generosity of the general public to fund its vital work protecting and caring for these beautiful animals. Over the past year, it has seen an unprecedented number of rescues, vet, farrier and dental visits and receives regular requests to rescue more donkeys in desperate need. The initial transport and veterinary care for one new arrival can easily exceed £3000, as, many donkeys arrive in very poor physical condition. This does not include ongoing care and the charity spends £60,000 a year on feeding its sanctuary residents, so donations are always greatly appreciated.
