Myself and my partner run an unofficial animal sanctuary, we have 18 cats, 5 dogs, 1 African Grey Parrot, 4 horses, 5 ponies and numerous hens, ducks, geese, turkey, pigeons etc. Anyone who comes to stay with us would have to be a serious animal lover as the cats and dogs are treated as part of the family and we never know what may be coming, last year we had 4 fox cubs and a baby badger. If you want to sit on the sofa you first have to move the cat/dog! Anyone allergic to fur or feathers would never survive. We would like help with animals and gardening. At the moment we could do with someone to help get stables for the winter.
They will learn about gardening and animal care,
The area is quiet and we spend evenings reading, watching TV or playing cards.
We support the sanctuary by doing garden maintenance, cutting grass, hedges etc. so we would like someone who likes animals and gardening to come and help.
