Oakwood Animal Sanctuary

Published: 4th November 2010 11:50

Caring for sick and elderly horses and ponies.

Horse and foalNestonians may not be aware of the animal sanctuary located only a couple of miles away in Thornton Hough, but most will be familiar with the small shop on Parkgate Road just before The Cross (next to the Tower Building) which keeps it running.

The first Oakwood Animal Sanctuary shop was opened many years ago by Carol Horton, who runs the sanctuary.  Carol realised that her passion for animal rescue had somehow to be funded.  A Registered Charity, staffed by volunteers, it has to cover costs of shelter, food, bedding, medication and much more.

The animals, mostly from troubled backgrounds, need care, attention and stability, 365 days a year.  Many are elderly and vulnerable and will never leave the safety and security of the sanctuary.  It is a huge commitment, which animal lovers in particular will understand.

Everyone involved in the shop and the sanctuary is enormously grateful for the kindness and generosity of those who support Oakwood - whether by buying goods or donating them - an unusual and interesting charity shop, as most customers seem to agree.

Do you have any unwanted goods such as small items of furniture, books, pictures, jewellery, ceramics and glass?  Remember, a charity shop is a recyling centre par excellence, so please don't take all these preloved items to the tip, bring them to us:
