Olive is a lovely young pony who has been spending increasing time with Tilly and could potentially be rehomed as a pair. She leads well and does lift her feet although will lift her feet to kick out at times so will need further handling.
She is a real character who enjoys playing and being groomed. She is very protective of food and will show aggression if she feels like her dinner is threatened.
Olive will be rehomed as a non ridden companion only due to a bad stifle injury.
Emily & Elijah
Both donkeys will need a home together with someone experienced with horses, donkeys, or both. The home must be patient and willing to continue their training after leaving the sanctuary.
Limited grazing will be needed - ideally a track system if possible to encourage movement, helping with the loss of the additional weight that they carry.
Emily (lighter mare) has a more subdued temperament, only concerned whenever she cannot reach Elijah, unhappy when she can see but not reach him. She is a polite donkey who would be content with or without human attention.
Elijah (darker gelding) is a very curious Donkey. He will meddle with anything new in his environment. Very mentally active and quick to learn forms of enrichment would be very beneficial.
Both leading well-using body language and vocal cues - ‘walk-on’ and ‘Woah’. Very responsive and getting more so with each session.
Whoever was to rehome them would be expected to continue their training and handling.

Jodie and Sanza
Jodie was paired up with Sanza and like everything else Jodie does, she took it all in her stride. She is not sound for riding but could lead a small child around. Jodie has a dust allergy and has a sensitive stomach with food changes. Ideally, she needs to live out with an open shelter.
Jodie adores a little fuss and attention and is always on the lookout for her next 'buddy'.
Sanza doesn't mix well with other horses but gets along with Jodie thanks to the older mares' mellow temperament. She does love attention and fuss though and enjoys grooming. Like Jodie, she isn't sound but could be used for setting a small child on her back.
Both mares must be rehomed together and must go to a five star home.
They would be perfect as a pair of 'field ornaments' for the grandchildren to fuss around. :)

All dog Applications are CLOSED!
We may have some dogs looking for urgent homes; they will be advertised on our social media pages. - We do not have any dogs looking for homes at the sanctuary at present.
Frank is looking for a home as the only pet. He likes a little fuss. He has been recently rescued after a couple took him in after his own owner threw him out. He's been a few wars trying to find a place among other cats. He needs a home of his own, where he can be the only cat and be spolit.

George & Terrance
George and Terrance are two nervous boys who were part of our Fairhill rescue. They've come along so well since arriving, but they are still very nervous and prefer to spend time to themselves.
They know to go to their crate for bed and food and are happy with other cats and dogs.
They need a lot of time to build trust.

Clifford / Boots is a lovely boy who was lifted in August as part of our rescue at the Fairhill Shopping Centre in Ballymena. He has come around so much in his time at the sanctuary and this is his second time being advertised due to being removed because of an injury and vet care.
We are pleased to say he's been given the ok from the vet and although he has a limp, we have been informed that activity is the best thing for him to increase strength and mobility.
So now all he needs is a home!
He is a long-haired boy and does require daily brushing to keep him silky smooth; he has become quite fond of his grooming time and will lie and purr contentedly.
He is good with other cats and will often be found on the sofa or in one of the many beds, having a snooze. He isn't really one for games and play, and would prefer a quieter home where he can be pampered and claim all the soft surfaces.

Male - Neutered
Nancy (originally Claire online) was one of the twelve lifted at the Fairhill shopping centre in August/September 2020. She has had two litters of kittens this year alone, whilst not being much more than a baby herself.
She is rather fondly known as "Hissy" due to her hiss of 'unwelcome' to intruders. She has not much sign of ever really knowing love or TLC before coming to the sanctuary and it has taken a lot for her to get as far as she has in building trust with people and confidence. Unfortunately, we just don't have the time to truly dedicate to her with so many currently calling the sanctuary home. She is currently weaning her last litter and then she will be going to get spayed.
We will always have a home here for her at the sanctuary and she does get time spent with her and we will get time to work with her one on one in the future, but if there was a home out there with a special person who would be willing to work with her and to show her humans aren't all bad we would be delighted to hear from you.
She knows her crate now well and although she has the run of the office and reception during the day will go into her crate at night for bed and dinner.
Can you offer a place for Nancy when she is ready and help her learn to trust again?
This place can be temporary or permanent! We just want her to have the best chance.

Biscuit and Gizmi
Biscuit and Gizmi are 1 year old female lop rabbits. They are a bonded pair. They are looking for an indoor home with room to run about. They are spayed and up to date on vaccinations. These girls are better suited to an adult only home; they are not overly petted and do not like being picked up. HOME CHECKS WILL APPLY!
Looking for a Broad of my Own!
There a few young roosters who would benefit from a brood of their own. Could you offer them a forever home?
