The Erdlingshof

The Erdlingshof is an animal sanctuary situated in the Bavarian Forest. Through its work, the Erdlingshof aims to create more awareness, respect and compassion towards all earthlings. The Erdlingshof is committed to a world where animals are considered part of our ethical system in which their needs are taken into account as well as ours.

The aim of the Erdlingshof is to enable all animals to live a peaceful life. Even though these animals were saved from slaughter and further abuse, they still depend on humans and therefore cannot live completely free.

In the future, the Erdlingshof wants to offer a cruelty-free home to more victims of factory farming. The Erdlingshof wants to emphasise that animals can feel and suffer, just like humans, and that we should treat them with respect.
