Noon Nye is a shy little Maltese who began her life as a potential breeding dog. After several years without conceiving, her owners discarded this frail dog - along with the neglected male. A kind woman took them both so they wouldn’t fall into another bad situation. The little boy was adopted by a family member and Noon Nye went to a temporary home where her health, veterinary needs and spaying were lovingly taken care of.
When we were asked to find Noon Nye a new home, Beryl and Pete agreed to foster her for us. Within a fortnight they had fallen in love and asked if they could adopt her. We weren’t surprised because three of the cats they previously fostered also became permanent family members.
Noon Nye was immediately renamed Waddles due to her unusual gait – and she lives happily with canine companion Dino and the cats. A recent visit left us feeling so grateful and joyful that this dear little girl finally has the life she deserves – a life full of walks, cuddles, nourishment, company and most importantly - an abundance of love.

Australian animals have not only suffered the torturous journey called "Live Export", but they have also suffered brutal treatment and deaths that would be totally illegal if they occurred on Australian soil.
That innocent animals are butchered for human consumption is horrific enough, but when they are also tortured by barbaric killing methods, decent people must raise their voices to stop it. Thank you for taking action!
Handsome Humphrey is safe with us
Tuesday, 18 October 2016 00:00
We are so happy!
Handsome Humphrey is now safely in our care. Yesterday we realised just how lonely he has been when he started running to follow us across a very busy road after we fed him. We went back and sat with him for awhile and sneaked away when he wasn't looking.
We returned today and caught him without any stress. We took Humphrey straight to a vet to get an accurate weight and have given him his first worm and legmite treatments. HIs poor legs are very encrusted and are inflamed where they meet his tummy.
This gentle boy will stay with us for four weeks while we get on top of the parasites.
Seeking safe hedgehog homes
Thursday, 13 October 2016 00:00
Spring has sprung!
Spring means our recovered hedgehogs are out of hibernation and ready to be released.
We're looking for hedgehog-friendly properties for them. They need fresh water (but not steep-sided ponds they can drown in), somewhere cozy to hide, and to be safe from dogs and traffic. It's also crucial that rat, slug and snail bait is not ultised on these properties.
Do you have a safe haven for the abandoned rooster we have named Handsome Humphrey?
We have been gaining his trust for some time and we are soon hoping to rescue him from the risk of traffic injury and dog attacks.
He now comes running to our call and makes wonderful chortling sounds of gratitude as he picks through our food offerings.
Humphrey will be treated for worms, lice and mites before his adoption to a slaughter-free, rural property which is safe from wandering dogs, poachers and other predators.
If you would like Humphrey to be your beloved companion, please contact us at
Chocolate and Jasmine only have two weeks left
Tuesday, 04 October 2016 00:00
URGENT PLEASE SHARE: Only 2 weeks left for Jasmine and Chocolate
Chocolate and Jasmine need a home - together or separately. They are sweet-natured, friendly, human-orientated felines, who are both 9-years-old and de-sexed.
Choc and Jazz have been living in the countryside with their loving caregiver since they were kittens but due to ill health and a change of circumstances, he has to move out of his home and is unable to take his lovely cats with him. The poor man is desperate to find a safe haven for them.
Chocolate is a fluffy La Perm breed, whose “perm” didn’t take. This handsome boy loves nothing more than to be cuddled and brushed, and needs a home with plenty of affection. He is very laid back so, once he's settled, a busy environment wouldn’t faze him.
Beautiful Jasmine is an Abyssinian X Siamese girl. She is also extremely affectionate and loving, although she prefers the cuddles to be on her own terms. She is the more independent of the two and may be suited to a quieter home.

Beautiful Blu has left us
Saturday, 01 October 2016 00:00
Sad news. Our beautiful Blu was put to sleep yesterday. We always knew his nose cancer was terminal and hoped he would let us know when he was no longer comfortable.
Blu spent his first 10 years with his loving mum, SallyAnn, and his final 11 months in palliative care with us. We knew him from the day he was born to his homeless mother (who is still under our umbrella).
Blu was a mediator, extremely affectionate, playful, active, curious and happy... until yesterday - when his usual enthusiasm disappeared.
SallyAnn spent the day with us so in his last hours, Blu was surrounded by the people he trusted and loved most.
We went on a quick shopping trip so that we could feed our boy a special meal and in the late afternoon we took him to the vet where he peacefully passed away while we soothed and stroked him.
He rested in his favourite spot overnight and today Paul dug a grave for his close mate in a place where Blu watched the activity of the outdoor animals.
Thank you so much to everyone who was a part of Blu's care team - from saying hello, to cleaning his room, to changing his water, to preparing his meals, to giving him affection, to providing his therapies.
Blu was fortunate to have been loved and cared for from his day of birth to the day he died...but will be very sadly missed.
