Animal Sanctuary in Navan

Find out about our work, our animals and all different ways you can help us.

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 great way to support our work

Fundraise for the Sanctuary

Back Into Daylight relies on a small group of volunteers and private donors to care for all the animals. For that reason it’s really great when people can host individual fundraisers to help us.

There are many fantastic ways to fundraise, such as hosting a raffle, a vegan bake sale or a class; running a marathon or participating in any other sport challenge that doesn’t involve any animal use.

We are extremely grateful to people who fundraised for us in the past. All funds collected go directly to helping hundreds of animals in our care.

Please get in touch with us if you are hosting a fundraising event and would like us to promote it across different platforms 💛

A big thank you to everyone who supports our work! None of this would ever be possible without your help and efforts.

Food For Thought

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