Animal charity Nanna is looking for homes for dozens of delightful creatures after taking in 150 last weekend.

The rescue centre at Higglety Pigglety Farm in Irthlingborough welcomed 85 degus, 68 guinea pigs, 37 rabbits and a dog.

Petrina Alderman, co-founder and trustee of Nanna, which is run by volunteers, said: “The sudden influx of so many animals was the result of overbreeding and illness of an owner.”

On Saturday, February 1, at Kennelgate Pet Superstore in George Street, Corby, an adoption day is being held, from 9am until 5pm, in a bid to find homes for as many of the animals as possible.

The event has been organised by the store and Nanna.

Pat Hutchinson, manager of the shop and a Nanna supporter, said: “People are invited to come along and meet the animals and if they would like to adopt one, all they have to do is fill in a form and we will arrange a home visit.

“There will be experts on hand during the day to give people information on pet care.”
