Smudge arrived at Big Ears on the 19th July 2017. He had been hand raised and very spoilt but his owners had to find him a new home. He was born in May 2013 as part of a school breeding program. He is very gentle and loves a cuddle. He gets on well with Scallywag and Albert his new paddock mates and loves lucerne chaff. He also has the biggest eyes we have ever seen on a goat.
Billy Baggins came to the sanctuary in February 2017. He had been found in the backyard of a Big Ears volunteer, all alone, very young and very easy to catch. It was because of this that we initially thought there was something wrong with him but it turned out he was healthy, it may have been his nest was disturbed by predators.
It wasn’t long before we discovered Billy loved sitting and sleeping in a hammock. He spends a lot of the day in the hammock sleeping in the sun. He is very very friendly and just loves cuddle time with Jacqui.
Phillip is one of 6 bunnies that travelled from Victoria in December 2014 to have their forever home here at Big Ears as a family. They had been living with an elderly person who passed away and their carer wanted them to live in an outdoor environment. At that time there were no outside sanctuaries for rabbits in Victoria due to foxes.
Wetherby came to the sanctuary in 2009 from the Devonport RSPCA. He had been found wandering in the suburbs and nobody claimed him.
He currently lives with five girl buns who keep him warm in winter with lots of snuggling and generally spoil him rotten.
Queenie is a special rabbit that has digestive issues. She has undergone numerous tests to get to the bottom of the problem with no certain diagnosis so far. Despite this she is a verry happy bunny who enjoys her time in the hospital as she is always the first and last you see as you enter and leave the hospital ie. gets lots of treats.
Sponsorship of Queenie is $50.00 for 12 months and goes towards her vet checks, parasite control and vaccinations.
