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.
Frappe arrived at the Sanctuary in March 2015 after the passing of our dear boy Lucas-Bear (also a german shepherd). Jacqui decided she needed to focus her grief on something positive. After contacting GSD rescue beautiful 9.5 year old Frappe was on a plane and being sent to us. Frappe’s owner had passed away and the owner’s family surrendered him to the RSPCA. Older dogs generally find it harder to get a new home. Frappe has settled in beautifully after a few mishaps with his fence jumping which has now been rectified with a fence so high even Frappe can’t jump it.
Frappe just loves the buggy and any chance he gets he rides around the farm in it.
Basil the Sheep (RIP)
Basil the Sheep (RIP)
Basil came to live at the Sanctuary after he became too dangerous for his elderly owners to handle. He had started knocking them over.
Basil is a lovely boy, full of attitude. He currently lives with 2 other new arrivals and is enjoying their company.
Basil is a breed of sheep called Wiltipole, they shed their wool and do not need shearing. Having said this, they still need to be drenched and have their feet trimmed etc.
Cinnamon the female pig came to live at Big ears in April 2015 with her friend Cocoa. They needed a new home as their human had passed away and they no longer had any food.
Louise the mini pony arrived at Big Ears in April 2014 after her human mother passed away and Louise and her friends needed to find somewhere to live where they could all be together. Louise required some intensive hoof trimming and care when she first arrived due to her human being ill for such a long time and unable to care for her animals.
