Unusual friends

My Hillside Animal Sanctuary newsletter came in the post yesterday - this lovely pic is on the opening page.
This is Socks the lamb snuggling up in front of the fire with Rosie, a pet rat. How sweet is that !

Socks was rescued back in 2007 and is now happy, healthy and full grown.
Hillside is home to a huge and varied number of animals including 323 Horses, Ponies, Donkeys and Mules, 129 Cattle, 310 Sheep and 79 Pigs. Also Chickens, Turkeys, Ducks, Geese, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs, Chipmunks,
Goats, Budgerigars, Cockatiels, Parrots, Love Birds and Fan Tailed Doves. Lots of Dogs, 7 Deer, 5 Alpacas and Llama and 3 Ostriches.
Phew !

I have supported Hillside for many years and I am still sometimes shocked at the animal cruelty in this world. There are many stories with happy endings but for some animals sadly it's just too late.
Thank goodness for Hillside and people everywhere who help and campaign for animals in need.
