Foster home appeal for cats and dogs
A NORTH Somerset animal charity bursting at the seams with dogs and cats is looking for foster homes for some of its most needy residents.
Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary in Barrow Gurney is completely full with animals which need re-homing, with a long waiting list of others waiting to move into its facility.
Among them is Bart, a Staffordshire bull terrier cross who was found as a stray in September and has spent the past six months hoping for a new owner. Described by sanctuary staff as a true gentleman and very obedient, he has now become very depressed in kennels.
Another Staffordshire bull terrier, Ruby, has been pining for her owner since arriving at Holly Hedge and is looking for a home where she will be the only pet.
With kittens being born all year round for the past two years, instead of the usual period between April and September, the sanctuary is also in desperate need for homes for the many cats it is caring for.

Holly Hedge founder Pauline Leeson said: “We are desperately looking for more foster homes to help us care for animals in need of help, also for dogs and cats that are not coping well in the kennel and cattery environment – particularly tiny puppies and elderly cats.”
