Meet Pickle, Plum, Ivy and Iris

​​​​Meet Pickle, Plum, Ivy and IrisWe would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of you who contacted and supported our animal rescue this year, another one of unrest and unpredictability around the world.

Despite this, our animal rescue has continued throughout these strange times due to your help and your support, thank you.

We were able to rescue some more caged hens who now have a lovely free life here, quite literally ruling the roost wherever they go. They have the free-run of an area about ¾ of an acre in size which they love as it’s full of bushes, trees, shrubs, grasses and of course places to dust bath and scratch. Meet Pickle, Plum, Ivy and Iris just four of many hens we have rescued.

Marbles and AprilWe have been lucky enough to continue to re-home rabbits and guinea pigs this year.

A special thank you to everyone who has given a new home to the rabbits and guinea pigs that have been abandoned with us, and found a new home with YOU.

William and friendOur pig William has been in our care for quite some time and has seen many others come and go. Recently we were concerned about his tusks and testicles (code name TT for short!), we arranged for him to go and see specialist vets up at Liverpool Veterinary Hospital.

Thank goodness we did, as after William had been castrated they informed us that he had a very large tumour in one of his testicles. Although he has recovered well and the vet thinks he managed to remove all of the tumour, he advised us to keep a close watch on him just in case.

Two of our longest residents here have both had illnesses over the past months which has meant many trips to the vets. Rabbits can be notoriously difficult to treat and finding a rabbit savvy vet is not always easy. We hope that both of them will have much better health after such intensive treatments.

In memory of:

CrumbleDear little Crumble only had five months free of the cage she was rescued from. She was an adventurous little hennie who made the most of every day and even on her last one with us talked to me as she scratched around the apple tree, we miss you little hennie.

Sunny Jim came to us with his friends Banjo and Nugget in 2017. He was a very feisty bunny when he first came here but he did mellow after a time. He became a favourite and after four years of his company we still miss him very much.

It’s not all illness and sadness here..we promise

One of our fieldsOur turkeys and hens continue to make us laugh and generally act like nutters most days. They are a delight to care for and it is a privilege to share our lives with them. The goats and sheep and the rest of the rabbits and guinea pigs plus one rescued dog are happy and thriving. Our organic land and small lake are a haven for wildlife.
