NEWS - December 2010

Dylan searching for Girlfriend – preferably blonde

Dylan the single drake

Well, I suppose there’s no accounting for taste. Each to their own. Dylan is a rather handsome drake who arrived on the doorstep in the arms of a tearful lady. Seemingly all his companions had eventually been kidnapped by Mr Fox when Dylan’s owner didn’t bother to shut them in at night. Unable to bear seeing Dylan, the sole survivor, disappear too, his rescuer brought him to the Sanctuary. In the two weeks he has been here Dylan has settled in extremely well but has expressed his desire for a girlfriend – is there anyone out there who would like to become a permanent companion to this charming young man?




Also arrived in the arms of a tearful lady who also knocked on our door. Malcolm was her much loved pet but was being ostracised by the neighbours, understandably, who didn’t appreciate his frequent tuneful episodes at all times of the day. Now he can sing as much as he likes and at any time.


Sheep from Stepney

Janet got a call from the Inner City Farm in Stepney in London to say that “everything had to go” but we don’t know why. The sheep did go and were brought here by staff and volunteers of the farm who were very sad to see them leave but delighted that they could come to the Sanctuary. So, six lambs about six to eight months old – three rams and three ewes – plus their three Mums have now taken up residence in a separate area of one of the large barns until they settle in. They have been with us for two weeks and are still a little shy except for Mum Brigitte who seems to be the spokesheep for the group. They all need sponsors. If you can help please contact us – thank you.


A Small Dog with a Large Personality

Shasha teh spaniel

When Poppy the King Charles Cavalier Spaniel died earlier this year Janet wished to fill the space that she had left. Shasha arrived some months back coming from a breeder who no longer wanted her as she was five years old and had an eye defect. This has turned out to be a cataract which could become infected and Shasha could loose her eye so she will have eye drops for the rest of her life to, hopefully, prevent this from happening. It certainly does not curtail Shasha’s enthusiastic delight at finding her freedom at long last! Amongst some of the tasks she has mastered is opening the hall door to go upstairs when she feels like it. She is a very confident small dog and has been readily accepted by the others – we don’t think they had much choice in the matter!
