NEWS - September 2012


One of Our More Exotic Rescues

A man arrived at the door saying, “I’ve got two turtles and the children don’t want them.” Well, we didn’t really have a pond large enough for turtles let alone think that even if we did the geese certainly would be happy to share, but looking at the box clutched in his hands we decided that the turtles must be miniature ones. Suspecting that they would end up in the nearest ditch if we didn’t take them, the box came and the man departed. Inside the box were two rather indignant terrapins, one much smaller than the other. All the reptile rescues we rang were inundated with them; obviously they are the pet of the moment, unfortunately. However, Terri and Fred had been brought to the right place and now have a top notch home with Louise and her partner Dave. Fred by the way is the smaller of the two, the more active and the more elusive when it’s time to come indoors and go back in their tank. He leads Louise a merry dance running round his outside run in the garden tiny legs pumping along to evade capture. Seemingly Fred is a Map terrapin and Terri a Cumbarland Slider, she certainly has more manners and she loves strawberries – a happy ending for them


Update On Robbie the Cat

This young man is most certainly well ensconced in his new and permanent home, as you can see. He has had the “operation” making him more sociably acceptable when using his litter tray and never goes far from home. His excursions take him in to the garden with his new family and when they come inside he does too, very sensible. He is a very affectionate little chap.


Three New Residents

Yet another box was left on the doorstep some weeks back with a note saying that the owner was going into hospital and could no longer keep what was inside. That turned out to be three ducks, two females and a male. They have settled in very well and have based themselves with Mark and Muscy the Muscovy’s , Hosanna the donkey and Rambo our elderly ram who despite his age does live up to his name. Any suggestions for names please?


Update On Brave George the Lamb

Most days George does not need any supports on his legs and some days he needs supports on his ankles only. This is an on-going situation which we monitor daily and our vet is conferring with a local company who make prosthetics for animals to see if they can come up with additional suggestions. In himself George is very bright, very happy and very active, running across the yard every morning with his young friends to spend the day in one of the top paddocks. He has been informed that he has a large fan club and he sends his thanks to you all for your concern and hopes to meet some of you at the Open Day.
