About Us

At Back Into Daylight we create a safe and loving forever home for farmed and domestic animals in need. We also rehabilitate injured and sick wild animals and release them back into the wild. We promote a vegan philosophy and encourage people to speak out against the use and abuse of animals in the farming industry. By sharing the stories of our residents with the public, we strive to show people the incredible beauty, serenity and individuality of other animals.

A Loving Home for Beautiful Simba

This wonderful little cat is searching for a loving forever home. He is about 4 months old and is such a lovely little boy šŸ’›

He was born from a feral mammy and was starving and very nervous when he wandered into one of our neighboursā€™ garage. With a lot of attention and patience from his foster dad, little Simba learned how to trust humans and became very sociable and sweet.

He is happy being rubbed and doesn’t mind being picked up. He is a very confident, gentle and curious kitten and loves company. He would be very happy in a quiet home where he will be given lots of love, attention, playtime and some private space too šŸ™

Please get in touch with us if you would like to adopt beautiful Simba!

Food For Thought

It is not an act of kindness to treat animals respectfully. It is an act of justice.

– Tom Regan

Know Your Numbers

Worldwide, more than 70 billion land animals are killed for food every year. We run an outreach program to encourage people to end their part in any use and abuse of animals by refusing to buy and consume animal products.

Our sanctuary relies predominantly on donations from private supporters and our own fundraising efforts to finance our work. We are grateful to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine for the Animal Welfare Grant of ā‚¬4000 we received in December 2022.

Back Into Daylight operates as a registered charity and has been recognised as of benefit to the community.
