L.A.R.A - Animal Rescue & Farm Sanctuary is a Registered Charity dedicated to rescuing and re-homing larger farm type animals, also known as 'lifestyle' animals or 'farm pets'. Perfectly located in a big farming community, we are here to help 'lifestyle' animals that are either injured, sick, surplus, or need re-homing due to change in people's circumstances that own these pets. We don't interfere with farming or take in large commercial herds, instead we work with farmers and help bridge the gap between farmers and the community wishing to own a farm pet on their lifestyle block. We take in many rescued animals from Animal Control, SPCA, other rescues, farmers, and private individuals and help and help find them homes as pets. Our Sanctuary side to the farm provides a safe haven for those animals non-rehomable, or sponsored. The farm relies totally on Sponsorship and/or Donations.
For Adoption - Cute Kittens & Gorgeous Goats!
Gorgeous coloured feral kid goats! Vaccinated, dusted for lice, and down to only two bottles per day now. (Boys can be wethered upon request)
Feral goats tend to be smaller than commercial dairy goats, and are pretty much disease resistant. Goats need a shelter, fresh daily water and should not be tethered (unless supervised for short periods- ie for hoof trimming, drenching, toxic tree avoidance etc). Goats are highly social and prefer the company of other goats but get along with most animals. Goats are NOT lawnmowers! They hate short grass and prefer longer scrubby areas. Goats need regular hoof trimming approx every 6-8 weeks, or as necessary. Goats are not grazers like sheep, they are browsers and prefer a variety of foods.
Viewings and adoptions from the farm at weekends, or evenings. We will try to help with transportation if we are going into town so please message us to make arrangements. Please also have a suitable box or pet carrier for transportation. These are babies and far too small to go in a stock cage. Adoption fee for cute coloured kids only $60.
We also have many kittens on foster. Males $70 - Females $90 desexed, flea/wormed. Viewing available, please message our FB page, or contact from this website via our 'enquiries' form.
