Dandelion is a very friendly goat that now calls Big Ears her forever home, together with her sister Clover.
Dandelion can be sponsored for $100.00 for 12 months and will go towards her health checks, toe trimmings, drenching and other health treatments.

Princess Pixie (RIP)
This little sweetie is Princess Pixie and she is another of the 8 we rescued. Her previous owner told us that Princess Pixie is 3 years of age and has already had 5 litters of at least 12 babies each. Most of the babies died, found frozen to death or in the mud. Princes Pixie is a lovely girl who is arrived underweight. She required antibiotic and anti inflammatory treatment for urinary scald, vitamin shots for malnutrition, treatment for mites and calici vaccination. She has also been spayed since she arrived at Big Ears.
This little baby is named Peppermint and she was born at Big Ears after we took in 8 rabbits mid August 2013. Her mother Rose was already pregnant with the babies when she arrived and she gave birth to 4 babies.
Daanee is approximately 8 months old and the daughter of Delilah. Her story is the same as her mum’s, she ran out of food on the suburban block she was living on. Her situation is a good reminder to people that sometimes it is just better to borrow the neighbours mower or get a mowing company in to take care of your lawn rather than getting animals to do this as their needs extend long past the initial eating of grass and include the need for shelter, water, drenching and having their feet trimmed etc. They are also a commitment just like a dog or cat with some sheep living up to 20 years or more.
Daanee can be sponsored for $100 total for 12 months.
Daanee passed away in 2015.
Delilah came to live at the Sanctuary after she and her daughter ran out of food. They had been purchased to be ‘lawn mowers’ for a suburban block. The grass quickly ran out and they both became very hungry. their owner contacted wanting a nice home for them where they would not be killed for their meat. They now live at Big Ears which will be their forever home.
This boy is one of the 30 rabbits rescued from a terrible neglect situation in Hobart in mid January 2015. For more on his story please visit our rabbit rescue tab. Victor now lives with Poppet, who pops in and out of their paddock, sometimes visiting the neighbour next door.
