Supporters of Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary in Barrow Gurney have been donating knitted jumpers for the chilly canines to wear.

The 22 dogs are currently housed in an old block, which can be drafty, but the sanctuary is currently having some new kennels built for the dogs at the home in Wild Country Lane.
