Ralph

Ralph came to us at a few days old. He was 2 weeks premature and the farmer did not think he would survive. There were 3 of us that took it in turns to bottle feed him from our homes. He did survive and turned into a wonderful sheep. He would follow us around bouncing on all fours to play with us. Ralph is now 13 years old. He has arthritis in his front legs and has pain relief daily to help him. He still enjoys life and has 3 other friends to live with.

Theodore

Theodore came into the shelter because his owner had died. Since entering the shelter, he has had x-rays done on his mouth, which have highlighted that his teeth roots are growing into places where they shouldn’t be. The vets have given him around 6 months left to live. Whilst with us we will do what we can to give him have a happy, comfortable time. He does loves tickles.

Hetty and Jacob arrived at the shelter in May 2019. They had been found wandering around on some land. The owner had deserted them but had not told anyone they were there.

Rupert, Logan and Sean

Rupert, Logan and Sean

Rupert, Logan and Sean are our 3 permanent residents. Each of them has their own medical conditions, which means that they cannot leave the shelter. We monitor them closely and take them to the vets for treatment when necessary.

Rupert

Rupert came in as his owner no longer wanted him. He had been living a lonely life in a shed. He had an infection in his eye that had been left untreated as well as major dental issues, which were sorted out quite swiftly when we had him.

Sean

Sean had been living in a tiny hutch and could not walk in a straight line due to him having E.C. Sean also had teeth issues. We soon had him walking in a straight line apart from when he is excited or stressed. Sean also suffers with stress related diseases, so we need to watch out for the early signs of these and promptly treat them.

Logan

Logan is an angora rabbit and came in as one big mass matt. He was extremely thin and could not have an anaesthetic as this would have killed him, so slowly day by day we would painstakingly spend 15 mins cutting out the matt until he became a handsome bunny. Logan’s other issues are bad lungs and he has weak back legs.

These 3 boys have been bonded together and are best buddies.

The Waterfowl Five

The Waterfowl Five

This group consist of Lucy (Chinese goose), Charlie (Muscovy drake), Jack (Indian runner duck) and Sugar and spice, who are East Indian ducks.
Lucy is the noisiest goose and will fiercely protect her friends.
Charlie is the old timer who is chilled and relaxed.
Jack is always making a fast dash here and there.
Sugar and Spice love to sit in their pool relaxing. The trouble is as soon as you clean it they make it nice and muddy again.

Buttons

Buttons

The seldom seen feral cat. He is always around the shelter, but only seen at his evening feeding time. Occasionally we see a flash of black, as he leaps over a wall and disappears.

Daisy and Custard

Daisy and Custard

Daisy (left) has been with us for a number of years. She became a permanent resident to keep a poorly pig company. The poorly pig died last year, which left daisy lonely. When good looking Custard arrived, we thought it would be a good match. They have a lovely large area to explore and a nice warm hand made house to live in. They both run up to the gate when they see us approaching, wandering what food we have for them to eat.

Toffee

Toffee

Toffee has been with us for 7 years and is now aged 14. The reason he was never adopted was due to his shyness around people. He has had 5 previous girlfriends who have died over the years. This gorgeous man is very happy living out his days in a lovely pen surrounded by other bunnies. You will spot him out in the evenings sitting beside his neighbours.

Misty

Misty

Misty came into the shelter in July 2019. Her previous owner had kept her tethered, so she could not run off but unfortunately the horse would tangle in the chain and end up kicking the goat. When Misty first came to us she would forever bleat at us for attention but she has since made friends with Toffee and Ericka.

Titch

Titch

Titch entered the shelter in the middle of 2019 at 7 years old. She was the only chicken left in a family and was very lonely. Because her family did not want any more chickens, she was brought into us and has made friends with some of our poultry.

Ericka

Kindly Sponsored By  (Your name will appear here)
Ericka

Ericka was brought into the shelter in June 2018, together with her 3 babies. Ericka was painfully thin, very anxious, had an over burden of worms and could not cope with feeding her babies. We hand reared the babies who then went off to their forever home. Ericka was treated by the vet and we managed to help her gain weight and she became friends with Toffee. Ericka has also improved with her nerves and is now a calm, placid goat who loves her food and cuddles.

Toffee

Toffee

Toffee came into the shelter in 2010 with his brother Fudge. Unfortunately, Fudge died a few years ago. Toffee was distraught at losing his brother. Luckily, he now has Ericka and Misty to brighten his day. Toffee is one of those naughty goats, who sometimes terrorises the volunteers. He can be the most lovable goat on the planet and the next thing you have just been butted, such a character.
