Frankie Jr and his best friend Colin arrived at Big Ears in October 2015. They both had originally lived with a person who had adopted them from another sanctuary and one from the RSPCA. Unfortunately this person was no longer able to care for them and they came to Big Ears to live out the remainder of their days. Frankie Jr is quite the character and has become a bit of a boss to his friends.
Sponsorship of Frankie Jr is $100.00 total for 12 months and will go towards his vet health check and parasite control. All our pigs live together as friends, they have shelter and they eat fresh fruit and vegetables every day.
Panda was given to a family with young children when she was about 3 months old. After about 4 days the family realised that it wasn’t fair on the bunnies, as the young children didn’t understand they needed to be gentle and quiet. Panda now lives happily at the Sanctuary with Nutmeg.
Clive is one of the 300 rabbits Big Ears took in when they bought out a meat rabbit farm in 2012. The numbers have declined over the years due to the poor hygiene and breeding they were subjected to at the farm. Those that remain, like Clive, enjoy the very best life a rabbit could hope for. They are able to engage in all types of rabbit behaviour including digging, running, socialising and living with another that understands them.
Dewy is one of the 300 rabbits that came to Big Ears in 2012 when we bought out a meat rabbit farm. She now lives with two friends in an outside enclosure.
She earned her name because of the extremely large dew laps that she has under her chin. Even though she is de-sexed the dew laps have never gone away. They make a great cushion for her when she is resting her head.
Ryanette is a little bush bunny that was rescued by a young man called Ryan. Ryanette was originally called Ryan but at de-sexing time we realised that Ryan was actually Ryanette.
Ryanette was hand reared and she now lives with her friend Tyrion.
Sponsorship of Ryanette is $50.00 per annum which goes towards her vet checks, vaccinations and parasite control.

In 2008 beautiful Dusty was hand reared by Jacqui from a baby when his mum managed to sneak a nest of eggs past us and they all hatched. Dusty must have been a day late and mum had left him to die whilst looking after the other ducklings. Jacqui actually pulled shell off him and moved him straight inside with her not expecting him to live. He still thinks Jacqui is his Mum.
