Xmas Sponsor Cards (see Xmas Gifts page)

November 30, 2014
Thanks to all the kids who made up the Xmas Sponsor Cards for us.
Each card has a photo of one of the animals in our Shelter at present who either can't be rehomed
or is being nursed (with their name on card). The money for each card goes for treats for that animal over Xmas.
You can buy these at some local shops on Central Coast & in the Hunter or from a Volunteer or on this site.
Also you can buy Xmas Raffle tickets here on the site.

Blog uptodate in the last little while. If anyone has some free time please contact us as we are always
looking for new volunteers for lots of different duties. So if you're good at something please let us know
& maybe your skill can be used to help the critters

Fishing hook injuries

August 31, 2014

August has been a month of duck & dog fishing hook injuries.   We have now had 4 ducks & one dog come into our care with injuries from fishing hooks stuck in their mouths or feet.
This highlights 2 big problems:
Firstly people are leaving, dumping or disposing their fishing gear in public areas irresponsibly.
Secondly people are dumping domestic pet animals in public parks or watercourses. 
A deadly combination!
Critter Rescue now has big vet bills to get the hooks out & medicate the animals.

Lots to cover but to everyone who has lent a hand over the last few months ..... a big thankyou.

Thanks to th...

Pet Food Donation Bin

July 29, 2014
We now have a Pet Food Donation Bin at Goldman's Petland, in Cessnock. Please consider a donation if you are in the area. Or you can make a money donation via this site.  It has been a very busy period for all us volunteers since last Christmas with record numbers of animals needing help.  Many times we rescue a whole herd, flock or litter of animals from starvation or neglect at one time. So food is always needed desperately.   Here's a photo of Rooster Guy making our bin

Drought, rescues, Pre/Post Xmas dumping of animals

February 16, 2014
We have all been busy for the first two months of 2014 battling the drought with little feed left in the paddocks for rescued farmyard animals & taking care of injured/abandoned domestic animals. Lots of mouths to feed. We have rehomed some but there are others still needing our help. A pet is for life. Never get a pet unless you have  someone to take care of him/her when you go on holidays.
