Be Kind!

So you’re probably wondering what this image is about. That is a photo of the total tally for individual animals for this year so far. The green below is a comparison to the previous year. We are currently sitting at 440 animals helped this year - for many years our numbers have been going down. These past three years they’ve only been growing. And another 6 animals will take us equal with the annual total for last year. We are not a big organisation, we try to help where and when we can. Many organisations will have several zeros on the end of that number. But for us this is double of our total from 2019 (221), and double of 2018 (218). The majority of these numbers are made up of pets whose owners could no longer provide care. With the cost of living rising it’s affecting everyone but we are still limited to who or how we can help. And if you are looking to adopt, or looking to rehome your pet - please be kind to our volunteers who are working around the clock to help ensure the animals get exactly what they need. We may be slow on replying, we may not tell you what you want to hear but we are doing what we can with what we can.


Please remember this when contacting - be kind, be patient and be respectful. You have no idea what our volunteers have gone through that day.

HAVE YOU LOST PIGS? (CRUMLIN ROAD - BELFAST)

On Monday, 5th September, 2 pigs appeared in a garden on the Crumlin road. Due to no one coming forward to claim ownership, we have found them a foster home to keep them safe in the meantime. Do you recognise them? Know anyone with pigs in this area?


PIGGY UPDATE! They arrived last week with their fosterer and are safe and secure. We are still looking to trace an owner. We know they are young pigs, not fully grown. Both male and both intact. They are a little skittish with things but curious and love their food! We know there is a high probability they have been dumped but we want to ensure they do not have a home out there looking for them. If you do recognise them please let us know!


Please remember proof of ownership will be required!

**SPECIAL APPEALS - Home From Home!** Shep (6 yo Border Collie)


Shep needs to find a new home due to loss of his own home. He is a very friendly dog, he is amazing with children and strangers although has anxiety with other dogs and doesn't like small animals or cats. He had previously lived with a number of other dogs but since living on his own he has decided he prefers being the only dog in the home and is looking for his new home to be dog free too!

He has been around children most of his life and is very used to them, although he will bark at too many loud noises so maybe older children would be preferable.

For a Border Collie he is quite calm and sedentary, although he does love his walks and a lot of playtime. He does pull a little on the lead but he has been working on this and is making great progress.

Shep has separation anxiety and prefers to be around people for the majority of time, but is fully house trained and can hold for most of a day and overnight. He enjoys spending time in the garden or outdoors but prefers people to be with him, he is an indoor dog!

Despite his breed he was never a working dog, he has been a family pet most of his life.

Shep loves being bathed and groomed. He is not destructive and is very good at only chewing his own toys, although is very sneaky when food is left laying around.

"He is such a happy dog and the most cuddly and caring dog I have ever met and he is very in tune with human emotions and would make great company for someone who can give him the time. I'm really sad to have to give him up and wouldn't if I didn't have to. He has a comfort blanket he sleeps on and I have a collar, lead and some toys and a little food and treats to send with him."

If you can offer a home to Shep please email rehoming@crosskennanlane.org.uk



Koji is still waiting - in the 5 months he's been looking for a home only one person applied and then didn't respond when contacted. Koji is a wonderful dog, his home cannot provide the care he needs any longer. We don't have the room for him and he's been in a home since he was 8 weeks old so it would be cruel to move him into kennels even if we did have the space. This is why we are helping home from home but he needs a home yesterday. He needs someone able to give him the time and exercise he needs. He's a lovely family dog; he just needs a person with time for him. Given his breeding he is a large strong dog and ideally we would be looking for a home with a good sized secure garden. He is an active dog but also loves lying about on the sofa and getting lots of cuddles.

He's a lovely friendly dog, good with children - and has experience of children aged 4 and above in the home. He is good with dogs both in the home and out on walks, he doesn't have much experience off lead with other dogs. Meetings and careful introductions will be required for any children or dogs in the existing home.

Please check him out on our website https://www.crosskennanlane.co.uk/dog-rehoming/koji



 

Upcoming Events 2022

Crosskennan's Autumn Dog Walk - 1st October 2022 @ 12:00pm In aid of Crosskennan's small animal vet bills! Only 3 weeks to go! Taking place on the 1st October from 12pm, our sponsored walk will start off from our premises at: 26 Crosskennan Lane, Ballynoe Rd, Antrim BT41 2QY

Setting off in the scenic countryside we will be covering approximately four miles in a round trip back to the sanctuary. You can take part on your own, in a group, and dogs are of course welcome!


We hope the weather will be fair, but cool enough for our canine companions as they have struggled in previous years when the weather has been too hot.

Sponsorship

We do not have a minimum sponsorship required and every little does help. There are several ways you can raise money too! Join us on People's fundraising, Just Giving, Go Fund Me, or Facebook by setting up your own fundraising page and linking all donations to Crosskennan. Need help setting up? Just give us a shout! You can keep things old school and collect sponsorship with one of our sponsorship forms!

You can also do a mix of everything - the main thing is to let all your friends and family know what you're up to and get them to sponsor and share!

On the Day We will confirm exact times closer to the event but we hope to have everyone meet at the Sanctuary for 12pm sharp. Once we have everyone registered we can set off. The walk is approximately 4 miles and is all on public roads (although no footpaths). The walk is a circuit taking us up and down some small inclines and through some areas of Tardee Forest. We will finish up back at the main yard again where we will have refreshments for you to enjoy and we hope all your canine companions will join in with our Fun Dog Show!

Sign Up So we can get an idea of how many people are coming and so we can best track the various sponsorship methods we are asking people to please sign up. We can share your fundraisers too then!


If you cannot make the day you can still get involved; just get sponsored and complete in your own time at home. Do send us some photos/updates of your own progress!

links to our sponsorship form are also available on the registration page.



25th Anniversary Gala Dinner - 5th November 2022 @ 7:00pm Maldron Hotel, Belfast International Airport, 200 Airport Rd, Crumlin, BT29 4ZY Crosskennan was founded in 1996 - in 2021 we celebrated our 25th year. Due to Covid, our planned Gala dinner had to be postponed until the following year. Our birthday is the 6th of November so it is apt for us to finish out our 25th year with a party.


The Dinner will be held at The Maldron Hotel Belfast International Airport, beginning with a red carpet arrival, drinks reception followed by a three course meal, a few speeches (we will keep these brief) and closing the evening with music and dancing. We are trying to confirm numbers for the hotel and while many of you have said you are coming along you may not have bought your tickets yet. We would appreciate if you could buy tickets sooner rather than later so we can get a better idea of numbers.

We need to be able to confirm dietary requirements for the hotel and the numbers for the meal etc so please do book today.

We would love to have as many people attend as we can to help raise funds but also to share the moment with them. We would appreciate if you would share the event not just with friends and family, but colleagues, clients, customers. We aren't asking you all to come along (although would be lovely if you all could) but just to help us spread the word about the event.

We have a A4 poster that can be printed out if anyone is able to display it. It has a QR code for the booking page on our website. Here is a link to download the poster for printing - https://drive.google.com/.../1u13Jly6uLNlupdT3Cs8.../view...

If we can sell 10 more tickets that will cover our supplements bill for an entire month!



 

**URGENT APPEAL - Supplements!**

Prices are rising weekly and what was £80 per bag in January is now £120 a bag. For some supplements we are restricted to select suppliers due to many not offering shipping to NI since brexit.

Yesterday we went to our cupboard (store) and it was bare. So, yesterday was an expensive day for us having to order up practically everything for the next month. Costing us over £622.24 (with the postage extra!)


Now to be fair some of these things will last longer than the month - some may last two/three months - but yesterday we realised all at once nearly everything had run out.

Now we do have some reserves to do us until the order arrives so the horses and ponies won’t be suffering but it’s the cost of everything.

Some of the things we’ve had to buy we buy in the largest quantities we can, as the bulk purchases are usually cheaper.

3.6kg Equine Amercia Cortaflex HA regular strength powder £200 20kg Top Spec Digestive Aid £120 20kg Equi Life Formula 4 feet (which we have reduced dramatically thanks to being able to use top spec balancer in place although some still get who can’t have the balancer) £118 3kg Buteless powder £73 2.5kg Oestress £95 500ml Airways £17

All of the above are used at different rates so it’s not often we run out at the same time.

While we would appreciate a donation to cover what we’ve just bought we would equally appreciate the donation of any of the above. It will never go to waste and you can help fill up our stores for another while.


We know the horses and ponies who get any of the above will truly appreciate it as it allows them to live happily at the sanctuary.

Donations can be made directly via Instagram or Facebook or you can send via our website, justgiving, peoples fundraising or PayPal.

PayPal direct is PayPal.me/crosskennan

Thank you as always for supporting.


 

Home from home... Cat Rehoming We still have 30+ cats and kittens seeking homes at present. Aged 10 weeks to 12 years there is a cat or kitten for everyone. This week we wanted to remind our readers of the wonderful feline friends we had:


After being found as a stray by a kind, caring lady. Sheba was taken in alongside her kittens to be cared for back to health. Now that her kittens have all found homes of their own, it's time that Sheba was able to find the love and care she so deserves. Sheba is a good natured tortie looking for a new home with someone patient - could that person be you?

Do you like watching tv and giving head scratches? Our beautiful black tiger striped Princess could be the girl for you. Our 16 week old sibling duo are looking for a new home together. Stevie is just as playful but a bit more timid than his sister and therefore would prefer an adult household.


Martha Our 12 year old grey tabby Martha is looking out for a home of her own where she can live out the rest of her days with some well deserved peace and pampering. Living as a stray for 10+ years, I think it's about time Martha experienced the sweet life.

Martha moved into foster and had all her checks and a little TLC. Sadly she tested positive for FIV. FIV is not a death sentence but it does limit her options moving on. She currently lives all her days in one room of her fosters house, and she is quite content although would like to explore a little more. FIV cats can enjoy a happy life and can make wonderful companions. To prevent the disease from spreading, the RSPCA recommends FIV cats must be the only cat in the household, so if you'd like to have a one-cat home, an FIV cat might suit you. Adopting an FIV-positive cat can be really rewarding. Although nobody can predict the future, many FIV cats can potentially live long, healthy and full lives, just like a non-infected cat. They also have all the usual needs of any cat, such as a nutritious diet, mental stimulation and plenty of love! Rocky, Rumour and Ripley

This gorgeous trio is Rocky, Ripley and Rumour. Rocky the female is black with a little white on her tummy. Ripley is a beautiful brown-black and Rumour is the tabby with the most beautiful markings.

They have been in foster for a few weeks after being rescued alongside their mum, Reina (also advertised on the website). The kittens are developing their personalities at the moment, mostly interested in exploring and food. If they grow up like their mum they will be very special cats.

Reina herself has been described as very zen and from the moment of her rescue she has taken to being groomed, having attention and in general living the house cat pet life like she was born into it. Quite different to her origin - being dumped at a derelict house heavily pregnant.

The kittens may grow up like mum, or they may be the complete opposite - at the present time they still haven't developed any strong personality traits. They have also had either no or very little exposure to children and dogs.

It's our preference that they find homes either in pairs or into a home with another cat present; potentially being rehomed alongside mum who is little more than a kitten herself.

All three kittens and their mum deserve someone to love them - could that be you?

This gorgeous girl is Reina, a very chilled young mum who is looking forward to finding a home of her own very soon. Reina is only a kitten herself but already she's been a mum to 3 wonderful little kittens, Rocky, Rumour and Ripley

She may be happy being rehomed with other cats, or even with one of her kittens. She won't demand much, but would be very happy to accept the attention when it's given.


Here she is, sunning herself waiting for her purrrrr-fect home.




We have a rehoming fee of £70 for cats. All our cats are neutered and if not neutered at the time of rehoming, will be required to be neutered as soon as permitted by a vet. All adoptions will only take place following meeting the cat at the sanctuary and a home check.

Unfortunately due to the large number of applications we can receive per cat we do have to state that we may not be able to contact every unsuccessful home. Adoptive homes will only be considered in NORTHERN IRELAND. We are sorry we cannot accommodate further afield but this ensures we can carry out effective home checks and you have a chance to meet the cats before adoption.

The importance of Spaying/Neutering your cat

We would also like to encourage neutering and spaying of your pets. There are so many cats on the streets without people to hep. Why would you add to the ongoing problems. There are more and more everyday needing help and we haven't the capacity to help anymore with our waiting list already overflowing. These cats/kittens need rescued, vet care, spayed/neutered and a kind, caring home. We have 60+ cats in our care currently and costs ramp up quickly. Spaying/neutering a cat costs roughly £35 each incl. discount (depending on vet as our fosterers are based in different areas and attend different vets). With vaccinations, flea treatments, worming and microchipping as a standard, these costs can mount up.

If you can help with the costs, please help using the donation information at the bottom of our page.


Or text CLAS Paws to 70660 to pledge £3 a month. Food, litter, milk, wormers, etc are all welcome too!



Our lovely 6 year old staffie, Koba has been on our list for over 3 months now. Unfortunately due to his owners health, he isn't getting the same attention he is used to and they've made the difficult decision to rehome him to a family who can give him the attention he deserves. Koba is lovely, friendly dog. Good with children and okay with other dogs although introductions will be required for any children or dogs in the home.


He is a happy boy who enjoys attention but can be left out in the dog run for periods of time. Could you be the love and affection Koba desperately needs?


***NEW***

Soya


New home needed - 4 year old, great dog who adores kids, fully house trained and just looking for a home where she can get the care she needs. Unfortunately current home aren't able to provide the exercise and attention she needs.


If you'd like to put your name forward, please contact us at: rehoming@crosskennanlane.org.uk





Shadow is a one year old lurcher looking for a new home. She loves napping on the sofa (or anywhere she can get to), long walks with a good run, meeting people and other dogs, eating food and getting cuddles.

She is looking for a new home due to the other dog in the home not accepting her and it's not fair on either. Ideally would like to get her a new home as soon as we can so she can get off living her new life.

PLEASE NOTE - HOME FROM HOME - this dog is currently not at the sanctuary and will remain in its current home until rehoming. All meetings will take place either at the dog's home or in the Armagh area.


This beauty is Ben, he's an 18 month old labradoodle who due to the sudden changes at home needs to find a new home of his own. He is initially shy with strangers but very quickly comes around and is friendly. He is ok with other dogs though would probably prefer to be the only dog in the home. He is good with children but a preference will be given to homes with children aged 8+ due to his own experience.

He can pull on the lead at times if excited and he does need some work on more reliable recall as he can get distracted by things. He is ok in the car. He loves going for walks and would needs a minimum of two hours of exercise a day. He can be a lively boy when excited and he has had some training to try stop him from jumping up which will need to be continued. He is very sweet and just loves nothing more than a cuddle. He is usually very calm at home and just wants a cosy place to lie down.

Does Ben sound like the dog for you? If so please fill in an application form.

PLEASE NOTE - HOME FROM HOME - this dog is currently not at the sanctuary and will remain in its current home until rehoming. All meetings will take place either at the dog's home or in the Newtownards area.


This is Honey, she's a 4 year old, a border collie - American Bulldog cross. She's been in her home since puppyhood and it's a very upsetting rehoming which comes after a lot of changes in Honey's home which have made life stressful for her. She briefly went to a new home after being advertised that didn't work out and she is back with her original home and will be taking her time meeting any potential homes.


She is a kind-natured dog and has grown up with kids and cats. She’s a very active dog but for the last while she hasn't got the same attention and exercise. She needs a home able to provide a good amount of exercise and stimulation. She is a strong dog and will pull on the lead, so someone who can cope with this or work on her retraining is a must.


She loves her home comforts and as mentioned has lived with cats her whole life - she is much more enamored with the cat than the cat is with her. She doesn't have much experience with dogs, and while we won't completely rule out homes with another dog, introductions would need to be done slowly. She’s a very playful dog with loads of energy.


PLEASE NOTE - HOME FROM HOME - this dog is currently not at the sanctuary and will remain in current home until rehoming. All meetings will take place either at the dogs home, or in the area.


Check out all dogs seeking homes here


We have a number of beautiful horses and ponies who are looking for companion homes. Can you offer a home to a rescue, horse, pony or donkey? Each one is special in their own way, all are non ridden due to age or injury but that doesn't hold them back from being incredible companions, friends and yes 'field ornaments'! Not all are currently on site at the sanctuary but we would love to find them all new homes (or as many as we can) before the winter.

Please fill in an application form on our website; specify companion only and let us know what you are looking for. We may not have someone suitable but we have quite a selection. At present most people want ridden equines so these guys so often get overlooked.

All horses and ponies will only be rehomed after at least one meeting with the horse and following a home check.



Emily & Elijah have been working incredibly hard this past while to improve their chances of finding a home of their own.

The mother and son duo have been practicing their leading, their lifting of feet and their manners.

They would adore a family who would shower them with attention. Elijah would love a sensible (half mad) child of his own to torture (love). Emily enjoys quiet attention and often lets her son have all the attention. So, a parent child combo could be perfect for this parent and child combo! They are bigger donkeys with some specific requirements:


- An extra large stable for the two to be housed together if possible but provision for separation (2 stables) if required.

- Limited grazing / grass free turnout / track system?


We love them at the sanctuary and we will miss them when they find a home but they deserve a family who can give them all their extra time.

Get Involved - September 2022 Volunteering Roles Whilst we are slow at getting new volunteers on the main yard with direct care of the animals in mind, we are actively searching for volunteers to assist with admin, fundraising, events, maintenance, publicity, press, and even photography!



 

We appreciate your support!

It's always overwhelming to us how caring our supporters are. We just want to say a huge thanks to all of you this past week who gave in one way or another.


We had a HUGE group up from @Grant Thornton NI last Friday (9th) as part of their work volunteer day. The group all wanted to do something to help animals so they selected to come to help us out for a couple of hours.

We put them to work and we can only say a massive thanks as they got jobs done that we always struggle to get to - cleaning and painting! We got walls cleaned that we cannot remember when they were last cleaned in the lean to, we got our barn fence painted, we got stables and walls cleaned and before they left a group even helped sweep up bad hay and split it from the good hay!

The horses and ponies (and Mia of course!) we’re all on hand to help supervise! Not only did they work hard - they also brought along a load of donations for the animals!

Blankets, dog treats, cat treats, cat and dog toys, carrots and apples, a flexi tub, cat food, and food dishes!

Thank you so much for all your hard work! We do hope we haven’t scared you all away!


We received this white board planner and whiteboard labels from our wishlist! We don't know who to thank so whoever you are, we are incredibly grateful for your generosity.


We were gifted this chicken swing this week from our Amazon wishlist! We’ve got it hooked up with some of our hens and hopefully they will make use - they were very curious but not quite ready to have a perch or swing. So hopefully we will see them having a go during the next week!

Hercules (the horse) made sure to get a good taste of some of the lovely coloured balls/beads on the rope!

 

Donation of the Week Every Friday we have decided to post an appeal for something specific that will go towards helping our wonderful animals in care.


This week we have a need for: Kitten Wormers & Flea Treatments! We have just spent £306.04 on wormers and flea treatments for kittens in our care. Liquid and spot on treatments (as some of these guys are not too happy with the liquid and some aren't eating well enough yet for granules).

This will cover (we hope) 40 kittens at a minimum. At present we have 31 kittens in our care.

Please support if you can.

You can help with donations directly to the sanctuary - Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary, 26 Crosskennan Lane, Antrim, BT41 2QY

You can also help us directly with the Vet bills with direct donations to our vets - the main being Clare Vets in Ballyclare and Cedargrove Vets in Belfast. You can help pay off part of our bills or put some credit on our account! You can of course also donate online to help - Paypal People's Fundraising Just Giving Our Own Website

We really appreciate your support - and there are so many other ways you can help us help animals.


We can accept Food donations, toys (no stuffed toys or tennis balls please), bedding (blankets, towels, and sheets are welcome!), and we can recycle old lego, mobile phones and used stamps!
