A Gwynedd animal sanctuary has been threatened with closure because there is not enough money to run it.
Drum is one of 28 horses being cared for
The trustees of the Freshfields sanctuary at Nasareth, between Caernarfon and Porthmadog, are meeting on Friday to discuss its future.
There are 80 cats, 28 horses and ponies, two pot bellied pigs and several rabbits at the centre.
Lesley Tarleton from the centre said the present income of £500 a week was only half what they needed.
"We have two charity shops, in Porthmadog and Caernarfon, and they bring in enough to buy food for the animals," she said.
"But we really need more money to cover emergencies and all the other costs such as the farrier's bills and extra supplements for the horses.
"I don't want to give up, but it's getting increasingly difficult...it's a real struggle."
She said apart from a shortage of money, the sanctuary was also desperate for volunteers.
"We have to take a decision on whether we can continue here or whether we should consider selling up and moving to somewhere else in north Wales," said Ms Tarleton.
The smallholding at Nasareth, where the sanctuary is based, was given to the charity five years ago by a couple who had been operating a cat rescue service.
"We've really tried hard to get it going, but it doesn't seem to be taking off," said Ms Tarleton, who founded Freshfields in Liverpool 30 years ago.
