“Before I met Chopin, I had a huge fear of horses and could not even think about touching them. But Chopin gave me confidence. Because of him, I learned how to trust horses. Now I can scratch out his hooves, saddle him, hug him, kiss him and take him for a walk. He’s a lovely horse, not just because of his magnificent appearance, but also because he has such a wonderful inner side, such a beautiful spirit. Last week was a very tough week as it’s so difficult and emotional to say goodbye to him. We’ve learned you should never give up hope. We’re never going to forget all of you at KFAAF for taking Chopin in and giving us hope, and for giving Chopin back his life!!”
Who we are
About Kindness For All Animals Foundation
The Kindness For All Animals Foundation (KFAAF) is tucked into the heart of the beautiful and picturesque Benelux countryside. We are a not-for-profit farm sanctuary for special needs animals near Geesteren (Gelderland). Our farm sanctuary provides a home for animals that are chronically ill, disabled, blind, demented, incontinent or are simply old. They’ve been through so much they are no longer eligible for adoption, so we offer them a for-ever home that provides for their special needs to help them cope with their disabilities. But not only are their physical needs met; KFAAF showers them with love and care and pampers them with the kindness and respect every animal deserves.
We provide our animal friends with environments and habitats that allow them to be who they are naturally, which allows them to easily adapt to their new living conditions. Animals who were someone’s pet before they came to KFAAF move into our home and live with us.
Our mission is two-pronged. In addition to providing forever homes for animals with disabilities, we also help healthy animals in need of a new home to find a new for-ever, loving family. These animals stay with the current owner with support from KFAAF for their daily care and medical expenses, if necessary, until a new home for them is found. In urgent cases where staying in a familiar environment is not possible, animals are temporarily placed with host families with the help of KFAAF.
