A donkey, horse and pony sanctuary in north Leeds is in desperate need of funds after its stables fell into disrepair.
Hope Pastures has launched an appeal to help raise the £18,000 needed to build new facilities.
The sanctuary on Weetwood Lane has recently been inundated with abandoned animals and is also struggling to cover the cost of vet, food and dentist bills.
Amy Shedden is the fundraising and re-homing co-ordinator at the charity.
She said: “The stables are over 40 years old, the roof is leaking and there are holes in the floor, which can be dangerous for the horses.
“The new stables will also mean there will be more space to home the new additions.
“The sanctuary costs over £8,000 a month to run so it is a massive struggle for us to have £18,000 at the ready to do this much needed work.”
She added: “We have been really lucky and recently had a barn renovated into a visitors centre but we just don’t have any more funds left for the stables.”
People can donate via the website, sponsor a horse or donkey for £15 a year or sponsor stable and have their name on a plaque, which will go on display outside the new facility.
Hope Pastures is holding flea markets on the last Saturday of every month to try to boost funds.
An auction will also be held at the site on Saturday, October 6, where new and collectable items and jewellery will be up for grabs.
A sponsored dog walk has also been organised for Sunday, October 14.
An Open Day will be held on Sunday, October 21.
The charity was registered in 1974 with the aim of recusing horses, ponies and donkeys that were being abused.
Since 2004, it has been run by the Phyllis Harvey Horse and Donkey Trust and aims to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home the animals wherever possible.
