    A final update on your donations.

    Your donation made an amazing difference and for the ducks and chooks it continues to do so everyday.

    We were able to clear $491.53 of vets bills and put up our bird fencing costing $546.22. The remainder was animal feed.

    Vet $491.53

    Food $197.25

    Fencing $546.22

    Total donated $1,235.00

    I appreciate you giving your hard earned dollars to us here.

    During this time (after re-opening after lockdown) we have taken in hens GiGi and Henny Penny, collected hens and a rooster from Otago and rehomed them, helped find a home for 3 piglets, taken in Stompy the little sheep, rehomed Meyer the horse, set up a support group for the 10 cows (Whakapara Girls) ,taken in Isabella, 6 elderly sheep and found 2 horses a home. A huge THANKYOU to you. Please keep up with new events and rescues happening.

    I'm really happy with what we've been able to accomplish here at Canterbury Tails over the last 5 weeks! We've been able to help 17 animals to safe secure non eating homes!

    I found a home for Meyer an elderly Clydesdale to a wonderfully family where she is loved and cared for.

    A gentleman with 6 sheep, he's had for many years and can no longer keep, is very happy to have found us on Google and been to visit us a couple of times. We have promised him his woolly family have a place with us. They will come here in the next couple of weeks.

    Stompy the little sheep was found in a dire state, stuck in a hole. After being released by the farmer and being nursed back to he health by the couple who found her this lucky wee girl was brought out here to live.

    We took Willie the lonely pig to his new home where he has made great friends with his new paddock mate Oscar( a piggy we rescued last year).

    Henny Penny the little silver hen was dropped out to us (along with bags of food)and has joined in with our feathered flock really well.

    Two little woolly boys born on Monday (currently nameless 4 day old lambs) have a forever home here and are being bottle fed and loved by a wonderful foster family.

    Soon I head out on a trip to pick up a little feathered family of 6 and join them with their new family here in Canterbury.

    We couldn't have done this without your kindness. We've had 4 vets checks done during that time for these animals and your donations support our work.

    In the weekend we put up 250 meters of fencing for the ducks, hens and roosters and they love their new space! . All thanks to your generous donations. We still have the birds accommodation to finish and the pond to put in for them.

    I really appreciate your generosity! Our rescue operation is now closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We are not taking on any new cases but concentrating on the care of the animals we already have here. The money raised so far has paid off our recent vet bills and allowed us to purchase alot of food for the animals for the coming weeks. We will be able to move the sheep into another paddock that has more grazing this weekend. Further donations will go towards finishing the chicken house and chook fencing .Keep safe.
