A SHELTER for rescued farm animals in Wolverton is in for a spooky weekend.
Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary (FARS) – home to some 450 farm animals – is opening its doors for a Halloween spooktacular.
And visitors to the centre are invited to don their most ghoulish fancy dress on Saturday (October 29) and Sunday (October 30) in exchange for a goody bag.
There will be a chance to meet the animals, shop stalls and enjoy refreshments on both days between 11am and 4.30pm.
Charity Lucas Helps Dogs – which funds the treatment and care of street dogs in Sri Lanka – will also have a stall.
The charity is raising money for a spay and neuter clinic in the poverty-stricken country.
While FARS is accepting donations of food for the animals. This includes eating apples, green bananas, tinned sweetcorn, cat food and rich tea biscuits.
A FARS spokeswoman said: “We have had one of our most difficult years to date with a huge hike in bills, hay shortages due to an incredibly hot summer and our grass drying up, and a freezing winter which saw us need to buy heaters and coats for some of the animals.
“Please come along and meet some of the animals, find out about what we do and help us continue our life-saving work.
She added: “Lucas Helps Dogs will also be on hand to raise money before their trip to Sri Lanka to carry out neutering and rabies vaccination clinics to help reduce the huge street dog population there.”
Tickets to FARS open weekend cost £5 each (£3 for under 12’s) and can be booked online or purchased on the door.
