Chooky the Rooster needs a super URGENT home!

Chooky found his own home about 12 months ago when he wandered onto a hills property and claimed a tree for a bed. He crept his way into the homeowners heart and she created a lovely box up in the tree for him so he would be safe from the elements. Unfortunately, she lives in a shire that does not allow roosters and despite the fact that Chooky is very happy in his current home, she must move him on. Here’s a little story about him from Gill…

Chooky is a tame rooster with heaps of personality. To get to his bed, he jumps on a rubbish bin then jumps into his bed. He does prefer to climb onto your hand and get lifted to his bed, from the bin, and then have his wattles and cheeks rubbed while he enjoys a bedtime snack of grapes, biscuit crumbs and wheat. He is very funny. I then have to pull up Black plastic across the opening to keep it dark but have been doing that late at night because it is too hot to do that in summer. Before bedtime he likes to hang out with us. His best friends are 3 visiting kangaroos. He hangs out with them all day and eats from the same bowl, especially with the mother and her new joey. He thinks he’s a kangaroo and protects their food from the crows and magpies. He doesn’t attack the birds, just boldly walks up and they move on.”

This gorgeous fellow must go to a really good home, but very quickly, as the Shire is putting pressure on her to get rid of him ASAP.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME: Chooky

AGE: 18 months

BREED: Orpington cross (possibly)

WORMED: No (will be done before handover to new home)

PARASITE PREVENTION: Will be treated with flea and mite spray before handover.

TEMPERAMENT: Friendly, loves a scratch and to hang out with kangaroos. Not too fond of crows though.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  Chooky would do best in a free range environment but would need secure housing for night time to prevent predator attack. Roosters are restricted to councils that allow the keeping of them due to the noise they create with their adorable crows. Please be sure to check with your local council before you offer to adopt. Please note that this rooster is NOT offered for breeding or eating.

ADOPTION FEE: $20

A Castle for Sir William the Goat?

William – affectionately known as “Billy” is in need of a new home as his owner was very ill and no longer able to care for him.

NHRFA found out about his plight and arranged for an urgent temporary home for him. He was an entire male and seemed very wary and demonstrated fear when approached by humans, so we knew he needed some TLC and vet work before he could find a forever home.

The amazing people at Paradise Pastures Farm Animal Sanctuary took him in and looked after him post castration surgery. They worked tirelessly to gain his confidence and show him that people mean him no harm.

Billy is now a much happier goat – and very ready to find a loving family who will keep him safe and secure. Could this be with you?

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME: Sir William (aka Billy)

AGE: Approximately 3 years

BREED: Unsure – Miniature Cross (?)

HEIGHT: 90cm to shoulder (approx.)

WEIGHT: 40kg approx

WORMED: Yes

DESEXED: Yes

VACCINATED: Yes

TEMPERAMENT: Very feisty but loves to play and receive scratches.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Billy is prone to getting a bit bossy over food so he needs a confident handler. He would really suit a home with other goats to play with. Goats need very good fencing as they are escape artists by nature. Ring-lock and line wire (top) is the best, at a height of approx 130-140cm. They are browsers, not grazers, so they will eat trees and bushes. They require regular vaccinations and good nutrition (contrary to popular belief, goats cannot survive on tin cans!) as well as shelter from the elements and vet care when unwell.

ADOPTION FEE: $70 (negotiable with the right home)

We hope you can help us to help this lovely boy.. please fill in the Expression of Interest form below if you would like to know more, or offer to adopt.

Monaro (Moni) – Rainbow Bridge

Monaro (Pony) Arrived 5th December 2016

18th August 2017 – Sadly today we said goodbye to sweet Monaro.
At an estimated 30 plus years old Monaro had lived a long life but it seems her age had caught up to her. Upon investigation vets discovered she had multiple issues with her stomach, liver, and intestines that were irreparable. Monaro will be greatly missed at the sanctuary, and in our hearts.

This adorable little lady was rescued 7 years ago from a large abondoned property. Because she hadn’t had any human handling, she was extremely wary of humans and arrived in a float laying down and very stressed. Luckily the family that rescued her back then, spent a lot of loving time with her and helped her to overcome her worries and learn to trust again.

More recently, her current family had to move to the city and they were very worried about where their girl Monaro (AKA “Minnie”) would end up. Being over 30 years old and prone to colic, she needed to find the exact right home that could care for her properly and provide her with a comfortable life in her mature years. So they contacted our co-operative rehoming group New Homes for Rescued Farm Animals (NHRFA) to help with this. NHRFA tried to find a home for over 5 months but we were unable to secure the right type of home, so now she has found her way to sanctuary at Happy Hooves.

We are so happy to welcome Monaro to the rest of her safe and secure life. She is now affectionately known as Moni – because we already have a sheep named Minnie.

 

Would you like to help us to take care of Monaro?  One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.
