CLARK KENT RESCUED ROOSTER

Clark Kent is one very lucky rooster, for more than one reason. This well-mannered young man found himself in an all too common situation for many young roosters - he was dumped.

But someone or something had bigger plans for this rooster. It didn’t take him long to bewitch the pound staff with his striking good looks and chivalrous manners. With people offering caring homes for roosters - a rarity in council pounds - Head Over Hooves was contacted and asked if we could help him out of his predicament. Knowing we were his only hope, and sure that there was a loving home for him somewhere, we agreed to take him.

Little did we know we were about to meet Clark Kent! – because this your man is a superhero. Clark has many adventure stories to tell, not the least being the time he fought off a two-metre python! Clark spends his days, watching over and protecting his many girls, sunbathing, dust bathing and finding treats for everyone. He loves a good cuddle, going for adventures around the farm and helping-out wherever he can. But, like all super heroes, Clark is also on a mission to highlight just how protective and caring roosters can be. It’s a big job, but someone’s got to do it!

There are some serious perks in sponsoring Clark Kent:

a) You get to be friends with a pint size super hero

b) You have the once in a life time opportunity to help Clark on his mission: he can’t do it alone!

c) You might even get a rooster hug out of it! - if you get the chance to meet him one day.

 

When you sponsor Clark Kent you are providing for his care and for the rescue, care and rehabilitation of other roosters and chickens rescued from pounds and shelters.

This can include:

  • Feed and bedding

  • Heath checks & parasite control

  • Rehabilitation for health problems

  • Shelter cleaning and maintenance

GEORGIE BOY RESCUED PIG

Georgie Boy found himself in the tragic scenario so many pigs find themselves in. He was bought as a cute little piglet by an unprepared owner living in a residential area. It didn’t take long for the neighbours to call the council, and before long Georgie Boy found himself at the pound. With his world turned upside down he would not eat, and spent his days pacing up and down waiting for his human, who did not come.

 

Once he had served some time at the pound, Head Over Hooves Farm Haven received a call asking if we could help the young man out. His luck was turning. Once all the paperwork was in order and PigPass was completed Georgie was on his way to Head Over Hooves.

 

Upon arriving Georgie Boy was introduced to his new best friend Henry Wadsworth Longfellow - it was love at first sight. After a week of settling in, getting to know his new people and being spoilt with delicious and nutritious food, Georgie Boy had a visit from our large animal vet for the dreaded castration, from which he quickly recovered.

 

Georgie Boy is a people pig; he runs as fast as his perfect stumpy legs will take him for a hug and kiss. He loves to flop on your lap for a cuddle and whisper sweet nothings to you. We may be biased, but

 

Georgie Boy is the sweetest, most affectionate and trusting little pig.

When you sponsor Georgie Boy you are providing for his care and for the rescue, care and rehabilitation of other pigs rescued from pounds and shelter. This can include:

 

  • Feed and bedding

  • Heath checks, vaccinations & parasite control

  • Desexing

  • Tusk trimming and hoof care

  • Rehabilitation for health and behavioural problems

  • Shelter cleaning and maintenance

Due to her missing front teeth, Matilda’s tongue often endearingly hangs out of her mouth.

MATILDA GOAT

Matilda and her sister were savagely attacked by a neighbour’s dog and her sister, who she had lived with all her life, was killed.

Matilda sustained serious lacerations on her hind legs, abdomen and neck, and was in mourning for her dear sister. As a herd animal, being suddenly alone makes life very scary life for a goat. Afraid of another dog attack, her owner made the heart-breaking decision to find Matilda a safer home.

Matilda is an incredibly sweet and gentle natured girl. She is a fabulously independent senior citizen who likes to do things when and if she pleases. Due to her age, she is missing all her front teeth, so she has special nutritional requirements. She also has her own private area to eat in, which allows her to take as long as she wants to enjoy her delicious special dinner.

When you sponsor Matilda you are providing for her care and for the rescue, care and rehabilitation of other goats rescued from pounds and shelters. This can include:

  • Feed and bedding

  • Heath checks, vaccinations & parasite control

  • Regular hoof trimming

  • Rehabilitation for health and behavioural problems

  • Shelter cleaning and maintenance

  • Desexing

LITTLE JIMMY RESCUED ORPHAN

Little Jimmy was found running up the middle of a highway with cars and trucks swerving to miss him. Miraculously unharmed he was scooped up into the safety of our ute. He was less than 24 hours old and had somehow been separated from his mother. There wasn’t another sheep in sight.

 

Orphan lambs like Little Jimmy have very specific care requirements: regular small feeds of lamb formula, veterinary treatments, keeping them warm and snug, and giving them all the love they need. It’s around the clock care.​

When you sponsor Little Jimmy you are providing for his ongoing care and for the rescue, care and rehabilitation of other orphans. This can include:

  • Veterinary care

  • Bottles of formula

  • Vaccinations

  • Desexing

  • Nappies

$25 can feed 5 chickens for one month

$50 can feed an orphan for one month

$100 can vet check and vaccinate an animal

$250 can desex one animal
