As usual, we've been busy with animal care. Our babies are getting bigger! Zip and Merge, who arrived as tiny kids, have now joined the older goats in the main goat paddock. They are relishing exploring the goat playground and seesaw, as you can see above. Mindy, our rescue bunny, is now almost fully grown. Lola pig has moved into her new winter home as she and her friend Squeaky have decided not to cohabit anymore. The ponies have had their teeth done, and we're giving Thunder special medical care, as he has been diagnosed with Cushing's disease. This is a hormone imbalance which is relatively common in older horses. With extra care, we're optimistic that our cantankerous but adored friend will continue to have a good quality of life.
As we take on more animals and improve our infrastructure, we're exploring new sources of funding. Last month we launched a range of gourmet vegan pies under the brand 'SanctuaryPantry' - hand-crafting human food to help us buy animal food! These savoury pastry treats have been well received at the V1 vegan store at 207 Cuba Street, and at the monthly 'Vegan Vault' market. Thank you all for your support!
