Flooding prompts animal rescue donations plea
AN animal rescue centre that gives horses, cats, dogs, pigs, chickens, rabbits and ducks a home is in desperate need of donations.
Anne Sammon, who runs Homeward Bound centre, in Barrow upon Trent, said the recent floods had left a lot of her fields under water.
As such, the 65-year-old – who in the past has had to use her pension to keep the centre afloat – said she desperately needs donations so she can afford to buy in animal food.
Anne also said she needs to build 10 large stables and 20 small stables on the site – but funding is a problem.
Homeward Bound is a not-for-profit organisation that Anne set up 10 years ago. She is pictured with Jack the pony, who was rescued from being sold for his meat and has been at the centre for nine years.
To donate, send cheques to Homeward Bound Horse Animal Rescue, Chapel Lane, Barrow upon Trent, Derbyshire, DE73 7UJ.
