WHO ARE WE?
Out-of-the-Blue Animal Rescue is a non-profit organisation established in 2001 and focuses on the rehabilitation and care for neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Based in Assegay, Patty and Peter I’Ons are the proud owners of the farm and out of their genuine love for animals have formed this charity. They currently house approximately 70 animals including 32 horses, 20 dogs, donkeys, cats and even a few goats.
Out-of-the-Blue is a non-profit organisation and relies purely on charity donations in order to nurture these helpless animals back to health and feed, groom and exercise them for the rest of their natural lives.
All donations would be greatly appreciated and we ask that should you wish to make a contribution, you use the following account details:
