Duke The Disabled Dwarf Bull Needs A New Home Fast

Six years ago, a city-dwelling couple left their jobs and their business behind to start saving animals in the English countryside. 

The pair saved all sorts of animals and have over 50, including sheep, pigs, and cows. 

While that's all good news, the family recently were told the lease on their farm would not be renewed, meaning they'd be left homeless by July. 

Their biggest worry is Duke the baby bull, who they rescued with a serious disability after he was in a major accident. They've even gone to the effort of building him his own calf wheelchair.

With little spare funds they've started a campaign to raise £80,000, so they can find a new farm for the huge variety of animals that have come to rely on them.

They've reached about 20% of their total, but still need lots of help. What comes across on their Facebook page and general updates is that they don't do this for money and only have the animals welfare as their main driver.

Anybody can donate and it would be a wonderful thing to see Duke and all these farmyard animals get the new and improved home they deserve.
