LIVESTOCK

All our Livestock ranging from Sheep to Goats to Pigs are assessed when they arrive at the Sanctuary so that we are in the best position to tell you as much about their personality, their likes and dislikes, their age, if they have been tested with other animals, how they are to handle and if they have any apparent health problems. 


We rehome our Livestock to the following local areas LL18, LL19, LL26, LL27, LL28, LL29, LL30, LL31, LL32, LL33 and LL34 this is due to home checking resources. There on some occasions we can home check further afield, but this will depend on resources and the animals concerned. All home checks require homes to have the facilities to offer livestock a suitable sized paddock will access to grazing and shelter. All animals must have direct access to same species companions unless rehomed in a pair from the sanctuary. No livestock animals will be rehomed to live alone without social contact. All livestock must have sufficient access to food, water and shelter.


All new owners of livestock where applicable must hold a current Church Paresh Holding number and evidence of this must be presented when signing rehoming contracts. New owners where applicable must also be insured and certificated for the transportation of the livestock concerned. The rules and regulations vary dependent on the distance, time and species being moved. Please look in to this before you contact the sanctuary to rehome an animal.  All livestock will leave the sanctuary with their required tags or indentation marks. These must be immediately replaced if lost in the hew home envenomed. All Live stock will be up to date with Vaccinations and parasitic prevent treatment. This must continue and kept up to date in the new homes. 

Adopting a Livestock animals as a pet can be fantastically rewarding experience and we always look forward to finding our animal the best forever home. Every new owner will sign an adoption contract when rehoming any livestock and we offer lifelong back up, so we are always on hand to offer follow up advice and if you do encounter any problems with your adoption then all livestock Animals must be returned to the Sanctuary for the team to then place into a new home. There may sometime be a delay on space being able if we are full but when you rehome livestock you are agreeing to keep them in your position until such a time that we have the space available to take them in again.  No Livestock animals under any circumstance can be sold or given away they must always be returned where we are in the best position for care for the animal and find a more suitable home.
