SHARON — No animals were injured, but a pole barn sustained major damage and is being rebuilt following a roof collapse a week ago at Valley of the Kings Sanctuary and Retreat in Sharon.
This weekend, workers were on site building a new shelter for Canela, a blind horse.
The Sharon and Darien Fire Departments were able to get all the animals out safely after the collapse. A veterinarian has checked the animals and all are in good health, minor scrapes.
The animals living in the pole barn include pot belly pigs, three elderly goats, blind horse, llamas & ponies and cows. The Emu’s lean-to is secure.
The barn is not insured, but they are setting up several fundraisers through Facebook, GoFundMe and Associated Bank.
