With four cows, 10 horses, 12 pigs, 20 sheep, two goats, 100 chickens, 50 cats, 10 dogs and 20 rabbits to look after, a charity is appealing for help this winter.

Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary in Raunds rescues animals from cruelty, hardship and neglect, and tries to re-home them where possible.

As the weather turns colder, the cost of food, hay and vets bills for the animals increases so the charity is appealing for people to help them out with their work.

A spokesman for the charity said: “The cost of animal feed is rising and vets bills can be shocking, especially for larger animals.

“We rely entirely on the kindness of public donations to keep the sanctuary going.

“It takes all of our time everyday to care for our wonderful animals, please consider helping us by donating towards the winter feed, vets bills or by helping us muck out over winter.

“Any donation big or small is a help and much appreciated.”
