ANGUS MP Mike Weir visited Mountains Animal Sanctuary in Glenogil last week, despite the heavy snow and wintry conditions.
Mr Weir was shown around the facility and was introduced to some of the horses and donkeys that are cared for at the Sanctuary.
He was also told about the recent difficulties experienced with flood damage and the work being done to re-open the visitor centre.
Commenting on the visit Mr Weir said: “I was very impressed by the centre and by the obvious enthusiasm of the staff and volunteers in caring for the many horses and donkeys, and a couple of sheep, in their care. Many of the animals have come from difficult backgrounds and it is wonderful to see them in such a happy and caring environment.
“The Sanctuary is a charity and, like all such organisations, needs to raise a considerable amount to look after the animals in its care. I would urge everyone to consider visiting the centre and contributing to their fantastic work.”
Mountains Animal Sanctuary offers adoption, re-homing and rescue services for horses, donkeys and ponies.
For 30 years they have provided food, shelter and medical care as well as unconditional love and patience to help the recovery and rehabilitation of many abused and neglected horses, ponies and donkeys.
