Wow! What an incredible week. We can’t believe that the last episode of Animal Rescue Live is tonight. It’s been very surreal having the whole centre shut for filming, who knew that Channel 4 would be filming a whole TV show at little old Raystede. We know that people have been a tad disappointed that we are closed but it’s most certainly been worth it to see all the positive feedback about rescue pets, it seems like people really do have a huge amount of love, respect and understanding for animals that need a second chance.
If you can’t adopt an animal please consider donating or even volunteering. The donations you send to us mean that we can take in the next animal that needs us, and then next one, and the next one…. There are so many animals out there that need our help and we can only continue to keep them safe with your DONATIONS.
Last night saw Gregory Peck’s debut, he’s our resident turkey. Gregory is both a lover and a fighter, he keeps his flock of ladies safe from any predators and he takes that job very seriously. We absolutely love Gregory, he’s such a character and we know our visitors are rather fond of him too. He loves to show off and parade is plumage to anyone who’s near by, so he’s very hard to miss. Kate was exceptionally brave and was filmed inside Gregory’s enclosure. He got a bit frisky in rehearsals, so she was a tad nervous of him but hey, that’s just Gregory. Once he knows you’re not scared of him he loses all his gusto and saunters off but Kate didn’t know that (hehe!) We had a team of volunteers on hand to ensure Greg was on best behaviour during the live show.
We think he did exceptionally well and he loved the limelight. Although, he seemed a bit annoyed that he had to share it with Jimmy Doherty when he arrived. We reassured Gregory that he still the most handsome and macho man in the all the land, even when celebrities are around. If you have fallen in love with the legend that is Gregory Peck you can sponsor him HERE.
It was very impressive that Simon & Amanda our mischievous goats managed to stay in one place whilst being filmed. They have a habit of being rather stubborn and doing their own thing. Luckily a large supply of willow leaves kept them in one place. Make sure you tune in tonight to see if this pair, who must be related to Houdini, have found a home.
Please don’t forget that we have a huge array of animals at our centre needing homes. We have rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, rats, mice, degus, cats. The list goes on. If you adopt an animal from us, we give ongoing support and advice for the duration of that animals’ life. So, if you need help with anything, we are right here.
There will be an extra special video being posted up later. Milo is a dog who has been with us for almost two years. He needs an experienced home but he has heaps of potential and loads of love to give. Please share his video to help him find the right home.
Bye for now!
