NEWS - February 2011

New companions for Priscilla the rabbit

three guinea pigs

Priscilla shared her penthouse suite with five guineapigs for three years. Sadly her friends have gradually passed on due to age with Angela, the last of the Girls, dying just before Christmas. So the search was on for new friends for Priscilla and here they are. Davina, Puzzle and Minstrel have been with us for a month. They are Mum and two daughters. Priscilla and these recently arrived Girls have all settled extremely well together.


Blues and Jacqueline

two sheep

These two elderly ladies arrived together from a commercial farm where they had had lambs every year. A few years back the farmer decided that he didn’t want to send any more lambs to slaughter so he stopped breeding and his flock gradually died. He was left with Blues and Jacqueline, who are 13 and 11 years old and he wanted to find somewhere where they would be safe. So here they are at the Sanctuary. Blues and Jacqueline immediately made themselves at home. They have joined our group of oldies in one of the large barns until the spring when they will be able to venture out into the paddocks.



Wonderful News!


Freedom, who came to us as a six month old lamb just over two years ago and was unable to walk due to a back problem, now once she has help to get up is walking almost normally around her pen in the barn. When the better weather finally arrives we plan to take Freedom into one of the small paddocks. The first time she will have been on grass since she arrived.

Update on Florence the Chicken and her Tesco Knickers

Sadly the knickers eventually lost their supportive properties so Florence now has a new sling, provided by a company who make seat covers for the Orient Express, thanks to volunteer Mandy. Obviously this upmarket support is working as Florence is beginning to take some weight on her legs.
