Animal sanctuary needs a new home

Share this article

Kind–hearted landlords are being asked to give a home to some four–legged friends as an animal sanctuary searches for new premises.

Fred and Ginger’s animal sanctuary is looking for a new base as it may soon have to leave it’s current home, in New Road, Tintwistle.

Margaret Laurence has run the small non–profit organisation, which consists of eight cats and one dog at the moment.

She said: “This is the third house we have had in this village and it very stressful for the animals to keep moving.”

“I want preferably to be in the High Peak, but if I have to move further away I’ll go further away.

“High Peak would be nice, I do love it here. I would like some land because I want to start taking on more animals.”

She is hoping someone will come forward with a property that is quiet, in which she will be able to stay for some time to come, in order to avoid having to move the animals again.

“The trouble is a lot of landlords don’t take animals,” Margaret explained.

“I can’t sit back and think something will come up, I’ve got to find somewhere to go.”

She has been rescuing animals for around 30 years and set up the sanctuary six years ago – naming it after her two cats Fred and Ginger.

“I don’t rehome them, they stay here until the end,” Margaret said.

“They want a stable environment with love and support.”

Margaret will be seeking support at the Inspire Festival at the Central Methodist Church, Glossop, on Saturday.
