It’s been another crazy busy week. Fortunately we have quite a few animals going to new homes including 4 cats, 2 sheep, 5 rabbits and 2 pigs. The other 2 big personalities that have found a home are Kenny and Chloe (Sunday best names: Sir Kenneth and Miss Clover!) As they are rehomed in the village we decided to walk them to their new home.

Big thanks to our cat fosterers, home checkers and volunteers as ever for making this all possible. X

We have a constant stream of wildlife coming in to us at the moment but many members of the public are doing all the wrong things before the animals get to us thus jeopardising the animal, which then needlessly dies.
Meet Walter and Eddie, the latest handsome boys to join the sheep herd. They are Jacob sheep from a school farm project. It’s forecast to rain all week so they’ll have to wait a bit longer for us to get their enormous winter woolly coats off.
These young hedgehogs or hoglets as they are known, were found wandering in the daytime. Hedgehogs are nocturnal so a hog out in the daytime is usually a sign that something is wrong. These two are weaned off their mother but are too small for this time of year. They need to be above 500 grams…
