Even during the supposedly “quiet season”, we are always busy at Catskill Animal Sanctuary with animal care, adoptions, pasture moves and so much more. Here are some recent updates!
Chickens are flying the coop! 93 of our rescued California hens have gone to their forever homes! 15 of the hens are now living with Kathy Knight of Stone House Wood Bird Sanctuary, a beautiful bird oasis in Rhinebeck. Ten hens moved in with Anthony D. of Red Hook and 16 were adopted by Kurt A. of Catskill. I also spent quality time with some of our previous residents at Kurt’s little haven in the woods where some roosters, along with Chris and Steve, the geese, are thriving and happy!
Driving Misses Ginger and Miriam…. The piglet girls were given limo service to Cornell Veterinary Hospital in Ithaca by longtime staffer Alex. Ginger went for her spay appointment while little Miriam is there for a follow-up visit to monitor her health since surgery last month. Their brother Moses seemed to enjoy his solo play time this week, romping and rooting in the barn.
In sad news, we lost Little Lux the bunny this week. He was a sweet boy who will be missed by all, especially by his best bunny pal Queenie.
