A rescue and re-homing charity has taken on more than 100 additional animals in the past week to help another private rescue site whose owner has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Animals in Need in Little Irchester now has 700 animals in its care, including about 40 rabbits and 25 guinea pigs who all need forever homes.

They have bonded pairs as well as single rabbits who need a friend.

Sanctuary manager Annie Marriott is encouraging anyone looking for a furry addition to their family to consider adopting from a rescue centre where the animals are already vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

Any donations of fresh vegetables, hay, Burgess rabbit pellets, corn or waterfowl pellets would be gratefully received.

The last day for rehoming this year will be Saturday, December 16, and will start again in the new year from Saturday, January 6.
