Dilbert – Rainbow Bridge

Dilbert (drake): Arrived 2009

UPDATE: July 2015. Dilbert was found dead on our property, believe to have been attacked by a fox or cat during daylight hours. We hope you didn’t suffer too much ūüôĀ RIP big boy.

Dilbert was Ric and Maree’s very first rescue, before they established Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary. He was found wandering the streets in Darlington, after being left behind by previous “owner”.

Dilbert has some luxury digs and hangs out with the chickens and Guinea Fowl

Jacko (sheep). Arrived 25 March 2016

Beautiful black-faced Suffolk, Jacko might be thanking his stars that he got hit by a car whilst out exploring with his mother in our neighbourhood. The farmer was glad to get rid of him claiming he was a Houdini. He wasn’t badly injured by the hit – just a bit stunned and given the OK by one of our vets. Now he has a safe and loving forever home with us. Sadly his mother couldn’t come too ūüôĀ

REHOMED: Billy Boy – needs a home to call his own


We were unable to find anyone interested to take Billy in, so he has been introduced to the goat herd at¬†Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary. This “mixed bag”¬†collection of rescued goats have allowed Billy into the group without too much trouble – all was sorted after an hour or so of sparring. (It’s ok, nobody got hurt – this is the way of goats.) ????

Billy seems very happy and we are happy to have him, he deserves a life of friendship, love & protection. Welcome Billy!!


Billy was a stray goat who was found roaming Whiteman Park on a stinking hot 44deg day, he was overheated and exhausted. He was quite friendly, so the lovely folks from Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary were able to give him a rest in the picnic area where he enjoyed brunch and rehydration. He was then transferred to Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary where he has been living during his recovery from the ordeal, and to ensure his ongoing health for the future.

Billy has now been vaccinated, drenched (wormed) and desexed and is ready to start¬†looking for a truly wonderful home to move to. He’s a funny chap – and he’s still coming down from his Billy Goat hormones (i.e. friskiness), but we think he’ll settle right down soon. He is really great with other goats, seems gentle and protective of them so his ideal home would be to join a small herd of loved companion goats. He is located in Perth Western Australia and available for local adoption only.

Adoption Fee: $75

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


Please fill in our EXPRESSION OF INTEREST form if you would like to ask questions or offer to adopt.

* Animal Actionist promotes non breeding of all rescued animals, particularly in the interest of breaking the cycle of unwanted farm animals (most of them males,) that find themselves with little time to find a new home and end up in danger of slaughter. All farm animals adopted via Animal Actionist are intended as family pets, and therefore the same rules that apply for non breeding of cats and dogs, applies to these animals too. If you apply to adopt you thereby agree and are bound to not use this animal for breeding.

All suitable applications are forwarded to the current custodian for consideration, and you will be contacted as soon as possible to discuss your offer further. Please understand that it may take a few days for us to respond to you depending on the amount of applications received, and it is never a case of first come, first served with animal adoptions, as we have to do our best to locate the absolute best homes for the animals. If you have any problems or further queries, please contact Animal Actionist direct via the ‚Äúcontact us‚ÄĚ link. Thank you so much for caring for animals.
