Shropshire animal sanctuary upping sticks to new home

The owners of an animal sanctuary near Clun are moving home - and taking their hundreds of rescued animals with them.

Tina Harkin, 54, and James Gomersall, 56, have been at Brook House Animal Sanctuary for four years, after moving from a smaller sanctuary in the Peak District.

Now they're on the move again after outgrowing the massive 38-acre site.

But this time they're not going far, having snapped up a property with double the land just down the road in Llangunllo, Knighton.

Their army of rescue animals, including donkeys, sheep, pigs, goats, llamas, ducks, chickens, rabbits, budgies and cats will also be moved to the new site.

"We rescue anything," Tina explained. "We're a sanctuary for life and we specialise in end-of-life animal care.

"Every single animal gets an animal funeral with a cremation - they mean the world to us."

The couple's love for animals was expedited ten years ago when James had a life-changing car accident.
