Our residents are all individuals with their own personality and story. And now you can be part of that story. By adopting a rescued farm animal, you will help us to care for both them and their friends. 

What's more, you'll also receive a fabulous adoption box containing...

  • a personalised adoption certificate from our founders David & DJ
  • a framed photograph of your chosen animal
  • a beautiful welsh slate coaster engraved with the footprint of your new friend
  • a recipe card featuring a delicious plant-based dish to create at home
  • a Goodheart fridge magnet, pen, and sheet of stickers
  • PLUS email updates throughout the year from your new friend! (Updates will be sent to the email associated with this order. If you would like updates to go to a different address, please email us at after ordering)

Our adoption boxes make fantastic gifts for friends and family of all ages, and are also a great way to treat yourself while doing something worthwhile.

Adoptions last for 12 months, and so email updates will stop after this time unless you adopt again.

Please note, aspects of the box may differ slightly from the shown image, for example, the style of pen or photo in the frame but all items listed will be included. We use real straw in our adoption boxes. If you prefer we didn’t in yours, then please get in touch by emailing


Rufus' rescue story:


I’m Rufus, the newest member of the cow herd here at Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary.

The story of how I came to be a resident at Goodheart is rather a touching one. In early 2020 when the UK was in lockdown, I was living in a field in the centre of Cambridge as part of a cattle herd being reared for beef. 

Every day, a boy named Ashwin would journey through my field on his daily walk and I would approach him and say hello. Ashwin was living on his own at the time, away from friends and family, and so by the summer we were the very best of friends. 

As more time passed, Ashwin couldn’t bear the thought that I wouldn’t get to see another summer, so he contacted the farmer who owned me, and I was safely transported to Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries. I have settled in really well and can now spend the rest of my days in comfort and freedom.

Would’ve been amazing

I was so excited for this box but through no fault of Goodheart, Royal Mail lost my package so I haven’t been able to review it.

The most precious gift

I bought the Rufus Adoption Box as a gift for my partner. Needless to say tear of joy have been shed at Christmas during unpacking. It was a truly precious gift to give and a precious one to receive as I’m told.

Delightful Birthday Package

I bought Rufus's adoption package for my partner, long time vegan and animal lover. She absolutely loves it and we love having Rufus's presence in our home.

His photo takes pride of place in our living room and the coaster is a lovely touch to have about the place. We received our first update this week to hear about how Rufus is getting on.

This is such a lovely gift to anyone who wants to feel like they are contributing to animal welfare and a good cause. We hope to make the trip to Goodheart in the next year and meet the big man.
