February torrential rains meant lots of rescues

Posted by Critter Rescue on Sunday, March 10, 2013, In : Ducks 
February turned out to be a terrible month of flooding rains especially bad after the drought of the last few months.
We were kept busy with wet smelly dogs, half drowned cats, goats trapped in swappy areas, drenched hens & roosters.
We worked with Native Animal Trust Fund ( http://www.hunterwildlife.org.au ) volunteers to rescue and re-home muscovy ducks who were dumped in a park in Newcastle during the deluge
          
                    
So far 17 rescued and 3 re-homed, a work in progress...

Storms & flooding

Posted by Critter Rescue on Saturday, February 2, 2013,
Unbelievably, we have gone from a really bad drought to a period of severe storms/flood in a matter of weeks.  We were buying water for rescued farmyard animals last week to now having flooding problems for many of our carers & our Shelter. What is that Aussie poem....''from droughts to flooding rains, The Wide Brown Land for me..."?  A big thankyou to Velma from  www.velmaspetsastherapy.com.au who organised a team of volunteers on short notice to be on standby all through the night of the se...

Summer, Drought, Xmas Holidays

Posted by Critter Rescue on Saturday, February 2, 2013,

It has been a terrible summer with record heatwave conditions. Critterrescue volunteers have taken too many abandoned & neglected pets into care.  The drought has meant alot of local people just cant feed their farmyard animals and the Xmas holiday period has meant alot of people have just abandoned their pet dog/cat/guinea pigs/birds etc to go away on holidays. It has been a really busy period for us. Hey everyone help us by reminding people not to take on a pet unless they can provide for t...

Why?

Posted by Critter Rescue on Monday, August 22, 2011, In : roosters 
Why are people buying eggs to hatch when they are totally unprepared & unwilling to accept the three out of four chicks who will grow up to be roosters!  Totally irresponsible!  We are still rescuing lots of roosters. A very sad situation.
A Big Thank You to Rooster Guy who has helped some of these guys find their forever home. Check out his new site www.roosterguy.weebly.com

Most were healthy and have been abandoned. A couple were injured by humans and needed Vet attention and are now being nursed back to good health
