Hennies

The famous gang of four!!!Sadly we lost two of our hennies over the past couple of months; one very quickly overnight and we are unaware as to why and the other little lady had a growth and internal laying caused by her poor body being worked too hard in the cage before hand. Hens are such amazing creatures and the thought of them being in those hellholes is disturbing to say the least.

These wonderful little creatures who gather round our feet at feeding time deliberately to trip us up and watch us do all we can to stop standing on their big feet!! are one of the reasons why we do not eat animals and only use animal friendly products. It's so easy so why aren't you doing it too!

Please do not hesitate to contact us for how to live a compassionate lifestyle.

We are now a registered charity

Charity Commission - The regulator for charities in England and WalesWe are pleased to announce that we are now a registered charity. The process was a long and rigorous one (as it should be) but we got there in the end. Whereas it doesn't make a difference in the day-to-day running of the rescue it does help give us more credibility when applying for grants, talking to the media, schools and the general public. Some organisations won't deal with charities unless they are registered. It does seem harsh as there are some brilliant non-registered charities out there but I suppose rogue people can pose a problem anywhere...

Registered Charity Number 1152987 Forget-Me-Not Animal Rescue - We are hoping to update our leaflets and information packs with our charity number very soon, we can get them posted out before the end if the year. They will feature our rescued animals of course.

Can you re-home a hen?

Can you re-home an hen?Taking rescued hens home is an experience I would want anyone who eats chicken or their eggs to witness, as they are truly remarkable individuals who let their personalities shine through even after a few days. At first of course they are scared and wary of everything and it can take time initially for them to become confident in their new surroundings.

We wish that there wasn’t a need to rescue any animals and that they lived free and happy lives without human interference, but until that day arrives we will continue to live a vegan life and do all we can to help people become aware of how amazing and truly individual ALL hens are who are so brutally treated by the farming system.

Bag-packing event in Marks and Spencer in Chester

Forget-Me-Not Animal Rescue will be having a bag-packing event in Marks and Spencer in Chester on Saturday 10th August 2013 between 10am and 4pm. We need 6 people at a time to cover their tills, would you be able to help?

You can stay as long or a short a time as you like or go and have a break and come back again! Even if you can help just for an hour that would be great, just one extra person would bring in another £100. This is a great opportunity for us to raise some much needed funds as we have had a hard time due to bad weather in 2012 fundraising and it would be really appreciated if you could help out and get anyone else to help too.

Thank you very much as we really do need people to come along and make a difference, our animals would thank you if they could.

William

William is a minature Kune, Kune pig who was being sold in a car park outside a pub in Liverpool. Yes you read that correctly, how irresponsible some people are, he could have ended up anywhere. Thankfully a kind-hearted soul took him out of this situation and so he then moved on to live in a flat. The people caring for him there were very much aware that he couldn't remain there and they contacted friends of ours who asked for our help, we said yes of course.

Forget-Me-Not update

We have had a very busy time recently visiting the vets. Unfortunately most rescues go through a period of time when they have a number of animals that are ill or injured. A number of our hens, guinea pigs and rabbits have had various ailments and it means travelling a round trip of 50 miles to visit an excellent homeopathic vet in Shropshire. Very sadly two of our beautiful amazing hennies died which is heartbreaking as it means they spent longer in the cages than they did enjoying their freedom. We were however, reminded that they were spared the horrific journey and painful end to their life to and in the slaughterhouse.
