Amazon Wish List!

Posted April 21st, 2014 by sarah

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! My lovely niece informed me that we could create a Amazon wish list for the bits that we need at the rescue, so below is the link!! All the items on this list are needed desperately and will be gratefully received.

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!!

Look at these lovely two, abandoned in a flat and left to starve, now spoilt rotten in a lovely family home!

Marmite

Posted March 2nd, 2014 by sarah

Marmite is a 8 years old black domestic shorthair female. Marmite may be middle ages by is still very playful and mischievous!
She likes a fuss and will sit on your lap but only on her terms, when she’s had enough or is simply not in the mood she will be off.
She has always had the use of a cat flap and loves to go out in the summer but during the winter months she prefers to be indoors and even prefers a litter tray
Marmite loves a good head rub, but is not keen on the rest of her body and small children just don’t understand this so she would probably be better suited to a couple or older family who are used to having cats and she is the only cat in the family.

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

Rescue Update

Posted December 8th, 2013 by sarah

This year has been one of the hardest years for everyone at All Animal Rescue, we lost a valuable human member and a valuable dog member of the team to cancer. We have seen yet another increase in the amount of animals needing to come in to our care and due to the decline in people neutering, vaccinating and flea treating their animals, we have seen our biggest number of animals coming in to the rescue sick or pregnant. For the first time in my life I have witnessed animals with so many fleas that they have passed away due to anaemia, which in this day and age is shocking!!

Over the next 6 months you will see a lot less animals on the website, due to the obscene cost of running the rescue this year we have had to scale back the amount of animals we take in and concentrate on fundraising, so that we can put some money in the coffers, as it is completely empty at present. This pains us all, but we can’t go on without funds!

Tinker

Posted June 17th, 2013 by sarah

Tinker is a 10 year old male ginger and white, domestic short hair cat. Tinker came in to the rescue as his owner had to go in to a home, he is a lovely affectionate boy, he is not bothered by dogs who are not interested in him, but does not like over enthusastic dogs!! Tinker is fine with other laid back female cat’s, is fine with older children and is in really good health.

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