They say Britain is a nation of animal lovers - and they don't come much bigger than Tamara Lloyd. She shares her Lincolnshire home with more than 300 of them - including one stroppy turkey - and several micro pigs who turned out to be not so micro. Michael Billington's got the story.
Tamara Lloyd has spent the last eight years rescuing animals to keep at her home in Boston, Lincolnshire.
She now has 300 of them, including pigs, dogs, horses, cats and birds.
Sheffield's biggest animal rescue centre may have to stop taking in any more abandoned pets as it grapples with a dire financial crisis.
The RSPCA centre in Attercliffe needs £2000 every day just to keep going. But a fall in the amount of money coming in from legacies and the recession mean it could be forced to turn animals away by the autumn if new sources of funding aren't found - as manager Stella White told us.
Police have launched an investigation after the death of a dog, which has been described as one of the worst cases of animal cruelty they've ever dealt with.
It comes after the remains of the animal were found on scrub land near Sheffield city centre. The male dog, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was tortured before being tied to a tree and set on fire.
Giraffes are the latest animals to be joining Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster - and will live in a £350,000 state-of-the-art enclosure. The first four giraffes which will include two endangered Rothschild's Giraffe, will arrive in October.
The innovative design of their enclosure, which can house up to 16 giraffes, will be ground breaking - with an indoor viewing platform at ground level where visitors will be only 1m away from the animals as well as a eye to eye viewing from a 8m high platform.
– Director Cheryl Williams
"We are absolutely delighted to announce that the new Giraffe enclosure will be opening soon look forward to welcoming the giraffes which include endangered Rothschilds...Whilst the enclosure will hold a bachelor group of males initially, we hope in time that we will be able to set up a breeding group in the future."
Owners of dangerous dogs are facing tougher penalties. If your dog injures someone in a public place you could now face a prison sentence of up to eighteen months.
But, even if no-one's injured, owners could get six months if the dog is deemed to be out of control. Shania Bannister from Chesterfield had to have her face rebuilt after she was savaged by a Japanese Akita. Her mum says the new measures still don't go far enough.

A horse sanctuary in Bradford is struggling to cope after being repeatedly hit by vandals. The latest attack, on Sunday, could have ended in tragedy after the vandals set fire to a caravan by the side of the stables.
