Thank you Win Edgar's Mission Farm SanctuaryEdgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary

Donation

So many of us have a special bond with one or a number of animals. Theres no denying, they have the capacity to move us in many ways we love them, cherish our bonds with them and they make our lives so much the richer.

Last night Charity, one of our resident sheep, was featured on Bondi Vet. Many of you told us her story moved you, and one woman was so moved she told her daughter she must drive her out to Edgars Mission. Win is 98 years old and today she donated $250 so that we can continue helping animals like Charity.

Charity

We believe in the power of the human heart and of kindness. Thank you Win for moving for animals, your kind support is so appreciated.

Right on cue Natural Newstead

As I sat on the verandah at dusk a couple of evenings ago a dark shape alighted on a branch directly in front of me. Silhouetted against the darkening sky it was easy to identify a Southern Boobook. Of course by the time Id scrambled for the camera it had departed.

Like humans, birds are creatures of habit. So, last night I sat and waited and this time I was prepared same place, same time it arrived right on cue. What a gorgeous bird!

Trent Edgar's Mission Farm SanctuaryEdgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary

Trent1

Behind him lay a sea of his broken and dying friends, in front of him stood the people who would save him. All the kind souls at the scene and viewing from home could do was watch and wait.

It was a miracle he survived the crash, seemingly unharmed. Amidst his dazed and confused buddies, he launched himself from the curb and marched towards freedom, one slow and plodding tread after the next. But it wasnt to be. A woman stood in his path and then we dont know what happened to him. From the footage of hundreds of suffering birds being picked up by their legs and tossed into crates, to complete their journey to the slaughterhouse, we can only imagine.

Trent

In honour of the treads he took towards a kinder world, wed like to call him Trent.

It was the first day in his far too short life that Trent had filled his lungs with fresh air, and it would heartbreakingly be his last. Trent will never know how close he came to living, how close he came to avoiding the grisly death of so unbelievably many of his kind.

Trent, like us all, wanted to live and sadly, despite his best efforts to do so, that wasnt to be. Why? Because our society has deemed animals like him property, which means they have been denied the same legal protection that would be afforded the animals who share the hearts and homes of so many simply because they look different. Yet in the ways that matter most, they are the same.

If you have been disturbed by the tragic treatment of Trent and his companions, please let that fuel your resolve to act and contact Turi Farms here. And remember to please be polite and respectful so we can get the best outcome for animals. Ask Turi Farms to:

1. Adopt a compassionate animal rescue plan that incorporates: the humane handling of both injured and uninjured birds (this does not include the carrying of such heavily weighted animal...
