Sheep - Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries


Ovis aries

From day-old lambs to elderly ewes, we care for lots of lucky sheep.​

Many of our sheep came to us later in life, so they need a little extra TLC to live out their golden years in comfort. Like all of our animals, they have round-the-clock access to a cosy indoor space and regularly see the vet for checkups.

Bob’s Story

Bob the lamb came to us when he was only a day or so old, after being found on the roadside by a supporter. There were no sheep or farmers anywhere to be found, so he came to live with us.

Caring for such young animals is a real challenge, but thankfully Bob began to thrive and now he enjoys playful days out and about with his herd. 

Teddy likes to make sure he’s the boss here at the sanctuary, but he hasn’t always been so confident. He was found by walkers covered in cuts and grazes, and he seemed very dazed. Thankfully he was able to come and live with us, and now he’ll be safe for the rest of his life. 

If you want to help us care for our rescued animals, you can adopt Teddy or one of his friends!

Ever wondered if there are non-domestic sheep, and where they might live? We take a look at all things woolly and wild.


Sadly, it’s not all rolling fields and green grass. Learn more about sheep farming and why sheep need our help
