UPDATE: A HOME HAS BEEN FOUND. THANKS!
MUSCOVY DUCKLINGS
Kay has 2 very much beloved, and openly pampered, Muscovy ducks named Violet & Vernon. Their enthusiastic partnering has resulted in a number of ducklings. Birth control for Violet is now being researched to prevent the flock from expanding, and the ducklings are looking for new homes. Muscovy ducks are wonderful animals, but we suggest adopting groups of all females or all males if you donโ€™t want mores ducklings.
UPDATE: HOMES FOUND. ๐Ÿ™‚

HAY FOR 2020 ALL SET!
I always heave a huge sigh of relief when our haybarn is filled each January. Itโ€™s absolutely crucial to the smooth running of our animal sanctuary, both as food and bedding. We are soooo lucky to have a wonderful couple, Brett and Kim, who make great quality hay and sell it to us before anyone else every year. I no longer have to lose sleep worrying about where weโ€™ll get our hay. Iโ€™m incredibly grateful for this. Iโ€™m also thankful for the good people who helped us load, transport and stack the hay back at The Animal Sanctuary: wwoofers Adelia and Carol, volunteer Kirstie, and neighbours Dion and Stuart. We never could have done it without you. Michael, the animals, and I all thank you!!

Wow! I bet it smells heavenly. Or should I say... hay-venly! Haha...I'll show myself out.

Absolutely fantastic!

Awesome! Whoop whoop!! Well done team ๐Ÿ‘

I know the stress all too well with an animal rescue of my own. I don't have a hay barn though so can't buy in bulk, just to add to the stress of it all ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Great job!

BLIND LAMB & HER MUM NEED A SAFE HOME
This little beaty is Gal, with her mum Buttercup. Gal is blind. She and her mum have both tested positive for the micropthalmia gene. This means they can never be bred from. Ideally they will have a small paddock of their own, without electric fencing, where Gal can learn her way around and know where the water trough is. They shouldnโ€™t be with other sheep, as the mum gets torn between staying with her blind daughter and going off with the other. So having just the two of them on their own would be ideal. They must be pets only, NOT for slaughter and NOT for breeding. An adoption agreement will come with them. They are very friendly, and love getting treats. Gal was born on 1 September, 2019. Because they are both dark, so they tend to aim for the shade when itโ€™s really hot... and when the weather is bad, they also like to have a bit of shelter. They're in Kerikeri, but Lara is willing to transport to Auckland or nearby to find a safe home. Please contact Lara on 021 649 765 or email larablake40@gmail.com
Please share to help us find a home for Gal and Buttercup!

WE GOT THEM ALL!!!! 968 HENS RESCUED
Our hen rescue this weekend was a complete success. Every hen due to be culled was saved, and the barn was completely emptied. Each hen now has a home, and not one was left to be killed on Monday, which was the scheduled "cull day". Special thanks to Sally (pictured) who partnered this rescue with me, and was a phenomenal force-of-nature help. Huge thanks to Julia for coordinating over 100 hens; to Dani from New Beginnings Rescue & Rehoming, and Steve & Phil from Takiwatanga Sanctuary Trust for both helping with large numbers of hens to ensure no hen was left behind. And to all of the wonderful generous loving volunteers who came along to catch, treat and load the hens, then transport them to their new homes. AMAZING!! If you wanted to adopt and were away, or we didn't get back to you in time, don't worry....we're doing it all again in February! Details to come soon.

DAY ONE DONE, DAY TWO IN PROGRESS
Yesterday we caught, treated and transported more than half of the 1000 hens scheduled to be culled at an egg farm. This photo shows just a few of the large group of amazing volunteers who worked for hours and drove to a variety of far flung destinations so that hundreds of hens could be rehomed instead of killed. And today, while you read this, we'll be rescuing the rest of them! With luck, we'll leave the barn empty. I'll let you know tomorrow, but in the meantime I want to thank all the wonderful people who have joined our rescue team to make this happen... and to all the people who adopted, because they make it possible! If you contacted us but haven't had a reply yet, don't panic and please be patient. We've been pleasantly overwhelmed by the response, and will get to you. We are rescuing the other flock from this same farm at the end of the month, so will continue to call everyone who applies to adopt over the coming weeks. We'd love to have a nice long "pre-approved to adopt" list. But first, we'll finish this rescue, and then have a well-earned day off!

We’ve had our girls for a year now and love them dearly, all so different and cute in their own ways. You rescued them, and they arrived bald and terrified. Now they are beautiful fine feathered lovely girls, happy, cheeky and always after a treat. Thanks so much - you’ve blessed our family ๐Ÿ˜

Awesome work!! We picked up our 8 rescue chickens yesterday and have loved watching them fossick in the trees. And they produced 8 eggs overnight!! We are already in love with their cute personalities ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”

Well done you chicken heros๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜

You are such beautiful and compassionate people. You all deserve to be recognised for what you do. Thank you

Well done to all those involved in this undertaking and all the best to all the rescued wee lasses

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
We were all set to go to a party with our friends, when a series of injured birds came in, one right after another. Several needed intensive care, so we cancelled our party plans and brought the New Year in with the birds. I did feel bad about cancelling, and missed seeing my friends. But you know what? I was truly content with our decision, feeling that I was where I should be, and making a difference. All the little ones that came in that evening are still with us, getting stronger every day. I can't think of a better way to start a new year. ๐Ÿ™‚

CHRISTMAS BLESSING #5: SPARKY
This December marked the 10 year anniversary of my beloved Sparky coming to live at The Animal Sanctuary. He was just 3 months old, and the injuries to his foot and leg were so bad that no-one believed he'd survive. We treated him intensively and changed bandages several times a day for over a year. People then predicted he wouldn't be able to walk as he grew in size... Now he weighs a tonne, is happy and mobile and has a wonderful life. People talk about their "soulmate". Well, Sparky is my soul animal! Our connection continues to amaze me, all these years later. So this month we celebrated 10 years of unconditional love and joy with this gentle giant.

Jinki ( www.facebook.com/jinkic ) Thank you so much for this photo, I still love it!!

Dear Sparky. I remember all the leg issues and how distressing it was just seemingly endless. Truely a miracle 'child' with a lot of practical dedicated care mixed in. He was the first animal I inquired about when i rejoined fb and was astonished at how improved he was. Seemed like it would never happen at one point. Very blessed that your pathes crossed all those years ago xx

Sparky is soooo cool ๐Ÿ™‚ love him.

oh man this story gets me every time, I think it is because he is so big and most cattle only live to see a few years, they are toddlers when they are slaughtered.he is so sweet.

You are amazing. Its a shame there aren't more like you. The work you do is amazing. Happy New Year ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿท๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’•

I loved reading about sparkie in your book ๐Ÿ˜˜

Ten years! Wow. Lovely boy โค๏ธ

You can see the beautiful bond you have in this photo, he obviously loves and trusts you

So lovely. I cried sooo much reading about him in your book x
