We are a family run sanctuary with a passion for the care of animals in need and a registered charity.
For several years we have done this purely for the love of it, but now we feel the need to raise awareness for what we do. Whilst we specialise in native animals, we believe that all animals whether companion, production or native need to be helped and saved.
Our emphasis on natives stems from the very really need for preservation and conservation of species, very soon they will be under threat from habitat destruction and climate change. If we don't act now it will soon be too late.
Our 10 acre sanctuary provides a home for non-releasable animals, whether by state legislation or other reasons, they are given a permanent home with us. Where possible, we will release animals back into the wild, but that is not always an option.
Often they come in as orphans, mum has been the victim of a road impact or shooting. We have the job of treatment and rehabilitation as they adjust to life in care. Often it is not an easy job, they require costly vet treatments and round the clock feeding of specific kangaroo formulas. Unfortunately not all of them can be saved, but we always do our very best for the animal. Support for what we do is very hard to find. We DO NOT get ANY help from the government. We cover all costs out of our own pocket, and with the small amount of public contributions we receive.
Helping us is up to you. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising, and any contribution towards the upkeep of the sanctuary is very much appreciated, or you can purchase items from our SHOP tab
