NEWS - August 2009

Snowdrop

Snow drop

Snowdrop the lamb is now six months old. She is thriving and growing. Snowdrop has very pink ears and here she is with Dave and Louise having her special suncream, kindly sent in by a supporter, applied to those sensitive bits. She is a very sociable girl and inquisitive and, as you can see, has no inhibitions when it comes to a photo call. Or when it comes to anything actually!

New Arrivals

two happy rabbits

These two handsome boys were bought by Janet from Henley-in-Arden market where they would have been sold for meat. They were then two months old and in the intervening two months have settled very well at the Sanctuary. Growing in size and personality Janet says that they are two friendly and happy rabbits.

A Very Sad Goodbye

Buttercup the cow was attacked earlier in the year by an unknown person. As a result of that her tail was paralysed and it was decided for welfare reasons to amputate her tail. Buttercup did not survive this operation. She was fifteen years old and in excellent health when the attack occurred. She was a happy, contented and affectionate cow towards the people she knew. Buttercup suffered severe emotional trauma following the attack but she recovered from this becoming her trusting self again. It was a shock to all of us here that she was attacked in the first place and that she then died. Buttercup should have gone on to have at least another ten years of a good life with us and her friends Bluebell and Buttercup 2. She is greatly missed by us all.

Fundraising

Like most small charities the Sanctuary runs on an extremely tight budget to say the least. We do constantly need people to raise funds for the animals here. If you could organise an event in your area,a coffee morning, a street collection, a yard sale to help with our funding that would be a fantastic help. Thank you. Please contact us.
