Maisey

Posted November 6th, 2014 by sarah

Maisie is a one year old DSH female calico torti. Maisie came in to the rescue as she was found straying and her skin was in a horrendous condition. Maisie suffers from allergic skin disease, this is controlled with a hypoallergenic diet and when she has flare ups it is treated with steroids, Maisie is insurable however any vet bill related to her skin will not be covered as it is a pre existing condition, so the new owners will have to bear this in mind.
Maisie is a wonderful cat, she loves her cuddles and loves to be able to venture out in the garden! Maisie is not worried by children and she would be ok to live with one other cat. Maisie is not used to dogs, so would not suit a home with dogs.

Maisie is fully vaccinated, mico chipped, neutered and fiv and felv tested, if you feel you could offer Maisie a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]

Coming soon – litter of kittens

Posted October 30th, 2014 by sarah

We have just had a litter of 5, 4 week old kittens in to the rescue who were found in a cardboard box in the middle of the road!!
They are underweight and not in the greatest shape, but they are little troopers! We will update with more news when we have it.

Coming soon – Arnie

Posted October 30th, 2014 by sarah

Arnie was left outside a local veterinary practice, he was held for 7 days and nobody has come forward. Arnie is huge!! not fat but huge!! He is a super sweet guy, but is very nervous and confused at the moment, he is currently under assessment. We will update when he is ready for adoption.

Urgent Rescue Update 27/09/2014

Posted September 27th, 2014 by sarah

Due to a huge demand on the rescue over the last couple of years we are having to shut our doors to any new animals for a few months, while we concentrate on fund raising! Last year we had to use over £11,000 pounds of our own money to keep the rescue going!
If you would like to help with fundraising please do give us a call, as without these much needed funds we just can’t continue on with our work.

Roomba

Posted September 6th, 2014 by sarah

Updated 30/10/2014

Roomba is now 4 months old female dsh kitten. Roomba is looking for a special home as she was brain damaged when she was born, this little lady will always have to be a house cat, her new owners will have to aware that although she is insurable, due to her disability not every claim will be covered. Roomba is our little space cadet and is just a little slower on the uptake!! Roomba thinks she is a dog and would be suitable to go with a dog that is used to living with a cat, also due to her disability she would be better as a only cat and she is fine with children over the age of 8, smaller children are a little bit loud and fast for her brain to compute!!

Roomba is fully vaccinated, fiv/felv negative, neutered, micro chipped and up to date with all flea treatment and worming. If you feel you could offer Roomba a home either call 02380 893198 or e-mail [email protected]

Happy Easter!! Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and are not too sick of chocolate! I have finally had the chance to sit down and have a look at the latest way we can use media to our advantage!

Sheena

Posted March 30th, 2014 by sarah

Sheena came in to the rescue from a well meaning owner. Due to the economy horses are far to cheap to buy! Sheena was brought at the sales 3 years ago for £50, she had run the New forest all her life and was not well handled, unfortunately her owner did not realise how hard it would be to break her to ride for their children! Sadly this stressed both parties out, Sheena did not want to know and it showed. Her owner made the hard decision to ask for help. At the age of 18 she is too old to re-home so she has now been paired up with Scarlet and she too will live her days out on the Forest.

I must say Sheena was certainly happy to be back roaming the forest, she walked off with a glow!

Merlin

Posted March 30th, 2014 by sarah

Merlin came in from a gentleman who brought him to brake to drive, sadly when Merlin did not do what he wanted he became quite rough with him. Merlin is a very stubborn character so when your rough with him, he is rough back! As you can imagine by the time we got involved owner and pony were at war!

On arrival in to the rescue we noticed that there was something not quite right, after a thorough check up from the vet poor Merlin was diagnosed with Cushings disease! His foster mum Annie has to keep him on a very strict regime of diet, exercise and medicine. Sadly at Christmas this year he foundered due to his Cushings, his foster parents Annie and Mark nursed him day and night and managed to get him to pull through.

As you can see Merlin would not be a suitable candidate for adoption due to his condition and expensive mediation.

Scarlet

Posted March 30th, 2014 by sarah

Scarlet is our oldest permanent resident, at the grand old age of 25! We have put some before and after pics up so you can see the transformation! Scarlet came in with her daughter Red from a animal hoarder, the lady had the best intentions, she kindly rescued Scarlet from a awful man who beat her and caused her quite a bit of damage,  however she just did not have the money to keep all of her collection of animals and their health and well being started to suffer and end up back in the circumstances she saved them from!

Scarlet is famous as she has kicked Monty Roberts, when we sent her away to his training center in the U.K to work on her nerves. After taking 6 weeks to get her head collar on, it was deemed that it may be kinder and less stressful for Scarlet to stay with us and live out her days on the forest were she can chill with her friends and not have contact with humans unless she wants to!!

Balthazar

Posted March 30th, 2014 by sarah

Balthazar is one of the rescues permanent residents, he was part of a herd of 100 that were taken from the hills in Wales and sold at auction for meat, thankfully for the ponies the meat man did not turn up to collect them, so a massive rescue was undertaken to get these guys in to rescue! Rescues from across the country came together to offer spaces, we took four stallions, three have been rehabilitated and re-homed. Sadly Balthazar has problems with his feet and is very nervous with people he does not know so it was decided that he would stay with us. For most of the year he lives out on the forest with his pals, but comes home regularly for feet trims and feeding!!
