Ex­otic an­i­mals on show at sanc­tu­ary

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

THE Lord Whisky An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary held a fur, feather and ex­otics ex­hi­bi­tion on Satur­day.

Lla­mas, ca­naries and con­ti­nen­tal gi­ant rab­bits were among the species on dis­play, giv­ing peo­ple a change to find out more about how to care for them.

Or­gan­iser Mar­garet Todd, who runs the char­ity from its Stelling Min­nis base, was de­lighted with the turnout. She said: “We’ve been run­ning th­ese shows for the last 15 years.

“It’s a chance for peo­ple to take an in­ter­est and then maybe go home and think about bring­ing one into their home.

“We’ve seen a huge in­crease in the last year of peo­ple hav­ing to give up their pets be­cause of the eco­nomic down­turn, as it’s one of the first things peo­ple choose to cut from their bud­gets.”

The show was held Boughton.
