Farm sanctuary opens the gates to visitors

A SHELTER for rescued farm animals is opening its gates for a summer open day this weekend.

Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary (FARS) in Wolverton near Warwick – which is home to some 450 animals from pigs to sheep – will be welcoming visitors on Saturday (June 11) from 11am to 5pm.

Visitors can meet the animals, shop stalls and enjoy refreshments including a vegan barbecue, pizza, pasta and salads. Money raised will pay towards the animals’ care

FARS is accepting donations of eating apples, green bananas, tinned sweetcorn, tinned cat food and rich tea biscuits for the animals.

Charity Lucas Helps Dogs – which funds the treatment and care of street dogs in Sri Lanka – will also have a stall and is asking for donations of unused or recently out of date pet medication and harnesses.

Tickets cost £5 each (under 12s free) and can be booked online or on the door. Dogs are not allowed due to some of the sheep being attacked before being rescued. Visit to book tickets.
