Mortacai is a super friendly boy looking for a new home to call his own. A handsome bun with white front paws, and a sooty-fawn coat, he is inquisitive, mischievous, outgoing, uses a litter tray and is a very clean boy. He loves to interact, and keep his mind busy, so lots of toys and things to do for our Morty. Play, leap, snuggle, repeat. He is always up for pats, whenever they're on offer!
Indi (very original name, thanks to moi) is a gorgeous blue female ringneck. She's actually quite placid and not as flighty as most aviary birds, so there is a chance that she was once very used to humans and being handled. A bit of patience and love and I think she'd make a great friend for someone. Her stunning colour is really not captured in photos (has anyone told you how hard it is photographing birds?! I thought the bunnies were uncooperative... hah).
Indi would love a knowledgeable home with lots of fruits and sticks and exploration time! She has a long lifespan, so needs commitment from her new owner. If you're looking for a best friend, she could be the one!
Dalinar is a gorgeous boy, that has sadly seen a lot of neglect in his past life. With striking looks, this boy has been desexed now and would love a home with some female piggie friends. He will need a special home filled with love, where he will never be neglected or abused again. Only serious guinea pig owners apply please. You need to be able to commit to 8+ years before considering adoption.
Sabrina was dumped in a park. Luckily some people took her and her siblings to the pound before they succumbed to heat stroke, as it was such a hot summer's day. From the pound they came to our shelter, where they've been eating, drinking and growing like weeds! Sabrina has beautiful blue eyes, and agouti dutch markings. She arrived quite timid, however from watching her over confident brother, she's learning humans bring her favourite thing... food. She's happy to snuggle in your arms, and is showing more of her personality each day. We believe she is a giant breed, so be prepared for a very large bunny when she's finished growing! Sabrina is looking for a gentle, quiet home, where she can continue to grow in confidence.
Update: Sabrina and her sisters are new bunnies. They certainly found their confidence, and can't seem to get close enough! (The power or being the treat bearer!)
Oh the gorgeous, glorious, glamorous Gabby. Words will never be enough to describe what a perfect girl this is. We don't know much about her history, other than her previous owner got her as an 11 month old pup, she was living in suburbia, and due to barking (like a maremma... because, she IS a maremma) she got dumped at a pound at almost 4 years old. From there she found herself on death row and running out of time, and so she made the journey to our rescue. Arriving, she was in an absolutely filthy state (no self cleaning maremma coat here) but was otherwise in good condition, showing that she has known love. Maremmas are a sensitive breed, so you can tell a lot about how a dog has been treated, and I believe she has had a good life before ending up where she was. Not showing any trauma, Gabby quickly settled into life at the shelter. She has been well socialised, is very willing to sit, even doing so when you are talking to another dog. For a maremma, she has good recall (obviously not when she's on patrol, but otherwise...). She didn't come with any leash training and so we've been working on that, and she is much better but it is a work in progress. You no longer need to be a muscle man when walking her though, and she's very responsive to corrections when pulling now. Gabby is extremely well socialised, she gets along with every dog around, and seems to have a particular fondness for little dogs. Getting down on her belly, she will play with them like that so she is less intimidating. Shows great potential around pocket pets, cats, chickens, etc. It would be a lot longer before I would trust her with these animals, however she has shown no interest in them at all, which is a great sign. There is no doubt that she could be left unsupervised with them given the time and patience put in with her training, however she is not a dog for anyone who wants to rush into things and set her up to fail. She has shown a healthy wariness around ferrets and cattle. Gabby is a calm and gentle girl, who has moments of puppy enthusiasm where she will race around the house if you throw a ball or entice her.
We get to know all our rescues really well before listing them for adoption, and always have a good idea of where they'll be happy. Gabby is welcome at the shelter, she is absolutely no trouble and if we could, we'd keep her in a heartbeat! The only reason she is listed is because we made a decision not to keep any more dogs, or we wouldn't be able to rescue them on occasion. So, if you are looking at a walk-in, walk-out adoption, there are other shelters that might suit you better. Apply for Gabby and we will make sure you are worthy of her, she deserves the best.
Gabby is looking for a companion home, which doesn't mean that she won't be good at some farm duties. For instance, using her natural instinct to patrol, bark, and deter predators from her yard will be beneficial, however she needs to come indoors at night, to snuggle on the couch with her family, to have soft, comfy beds, etc. A doggie companion in the household would be a huge plus. She is affectionate and would like someone who is around most of the day. She needs an acreage lifestyle, where neighbours won't be upset by her barking.
This beautiful girl is a rare gem. She loves a hug, is willing to do as you ask, tries her best, is very calm and gentle, with all the looks! She's been house trained since arriving, not one accident, no chewing or destructive behaviour, just perfection. I can not say enough good things about our Gabby.
Jill was dumped in a park. Luckily some people took her and her siblings to the pound before they succumbed to heat stroke, as it was such a hot summer's day. From the pound they came to our shelter, where they've been eating, drinking and growing like weeds! Jill has beautiful light agouti dutch markings. She arrived quite timid, however from watching her over confident brother, she's learning humans bring her favourite thing... food. She's happy to snuggle in your arms, and is showing more of her personality each day. We believe she is a giant breed, so be prepared for a very large bunny when she's finished growing! Jill is looking for a gentle, quiet home, where she can continue to grow in confidence.
Mitchell is a lovely, big boy! He is confident, outgoing, and has immaculate litter tray habits. There is just one thing he does not like. Being picked up. Not only is he extremely awkward to hold, with legs everywhere, but he just prefers to have 4 feet planted firmly on the ground, thank you very much. He has extra long ears, and is unfazed by most things. Barking dogs? Ooo, interesting. Those big ears of his can pick up on most sounds!
Moey is perfection. He is a tiny Netherland Dwarf, so light and cuddly and adorable. Coming to us as just a baby, he is super well socialised and loves people. He melts as soon as you pat him, in fact, he was so floppy and relaxed when he was stretched out asleep on my lap, that he ended up sliding off and continuing his dream on the furniture, before he realised I'd stopped patting him. Always the first to greet us, with his tiny little face demanding pats and pushing into us, it's no surprise we're in love. So much, that I know more than one volunteer wishes he'd stay at the shelter forever, and I have been putting off listing him for quite a while.
Moey is a playful binky-artist, who is full of fun and snuggles. He is looking at a mature household (no kids under 10) where he can be the spoilt child in the family. Must be indoors, and getting lots of attention. Must respect the fact that Moey knows best, so don't try to move his toys without permission, or do anything without patting him. Ideal for someone with more than two hands, so that he is getting pats while you're working. This special boy will need an equally special home, he is just divine.
