Hopefield Animal Sanctuary's Sophie Kemp tells Enjoy Brentwood More this week about their tortoises new home as well as the upcoming annual dog show.
This week our sulcata tortoises finally moved into their new enclosure!
They have plenty of space as they are still growing, and can get to a whopping 3ft in length.
People buy these animals without doing their research and think they stay small.
They fast out-grow their accommodation and then people search for new homes for them.
Our annual dog show is back on Sunday, September 15! With 10 classes in the show, trade stalls, beer and pimms tent, inflatables, children's entertainer and so much more!
We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that came along to visit Hopefield throughout the summer holidays!
With six different themes across six weeks, activities for the kids, animals talks and feeds, it was great to see so many familiar, and new faces.
The money we raise in the summer helps to build up our winter fund, as it's the most difficult time of year for us - money stops coming in, and bills increase.
As a non-profit organisation, all the money from visiting the sanctuary goes towards directly caring and providing for our 500+ rescue residents.
