ABOUT US

The Weetbix Gang was established in November 2018 by Alice and Zoe, the first residents at our micro-sanctuary located in the Dandenong Ranges, Victoria (Australia)

Our mission is to provide sanctuary to our residents and touch human hearts through positive education. By sharing the Gang’s stories and allowing people to follow their journey to recovery and beyond, we hope to create a kinder, more compassionate world for all.

Currently we have 5 Gang members, including our founding members Alice and Zoe.

Alice
Alice was found on the side of the road. She was unable to walk and was left there to die. As fate has it, a caring soul was driving past who spotted Alice, and they transported her to safety.

Alice wasn’t in a good way and she needed intense daily care; she was on a drip and receiving regular injections.

At one point her carer thought it was time to put Alice to rest. She was at the vets about to be out to sleep, when suddenly she sparked up. They could see in her eyes she wanted to live. Her carer took her home and started to rehabilitate her using a chair in the hope that she would one day walk again.

After some time, Alice gained strength and was hobbling around getting into all sorts of mischief. She now walks unassisted and follows her best friend Zoe everywhere.

Alice is the definition of strong, resilient and a reminder to us all to never give up.

Zoe
Zoe’s story is a remarkable one.

Awaiting her turn to be killed at the slaughterhouse, she was selected from hundreds of others and surrendered to sanctuary.

Understandably Zoe was very frightened of humans. Over a couple of months, Zoe’s trust was gained again, and she learned that human hands weren’t going to harm her.

Zoe is now a confident, happy and boisterous sheep.

Samson
Samson was found down and unable to stand.

Weak and vulnerable, he was being pecked at by crows.

Had he not been found his eyes would have likely been pecked out, and if not attacked by predators, he would have slowly starved to death.

Initially Samson was timid and shy, but with some gentle encouragement and care he is now living his life as the sweetest most affectionate and playful member of the Gang.

Tanith
Tanith was found down in the freezing cold wind and rain after giving birth. She had a condition called pregnancy toxemia, which was caused by not getting enough nutrition to support her and her growing baby.

Unfortunately she was found too late to save her baby. Tanith’s baby was unable to feed from her as she was down, and sadly he perished in the cold.

Tanith was critical, and her chances of survival were slim. She was down for so long one side of her body was covered in urine burns and was very swollen and tender.

With some help from Stronghearts Sanctuary, her new friend Jade, and a lot of inner strength and determination from Tanith, she fought for her life and came out the other side!

Jade
Jade was found close to Tanith, she like Tenith had lost her baby and was too weak to get up.

She was cast on her side in the freezing wind and rain for at least 2 days before she was rescued. She was extremely emaciated.

Although she was wobbly on her feet, Jade spent her time in recovery doting over her friend Tanith willing her to get better.

Jade’s loyalty to and bond with Tanith is inspiring and we are so glad that they can now grow old together in sanctuary.

Sonny
We recently lost little Sonny. He will be forever in our hearts

Here is his story: https://www.facebook.com/436696000211583/posts/455373518343831?s=100013796651489&v=e&sfns=mo

OUR DREAMS

Short-term

We want to grow the Gang and continue to educate people about the plight of the animals we share this planet with.

To be able to achieve this, in addition to being able to meet increased day-to-day costs, we would like to provide more shelter.

In the hills it gets very cold. We have a large shed which we utilise part of as sleeping quarters in the winter months. If we were to take on more residents, we would need to use the whole shed. To open up the whole space, there would be some minor repairs required on the roof and additional padding and bedding for the floor.

With the only shelter option being the shed, the Gang gather under the house during the day. Ideally we’d like to build a run in shelter so that the growing Gang have other options to hang out in or escape the elements when needed.

Long-term
Our long-term goal is to secure a larger property where we can provide sanctuary to many more animals in need and continue educating people all over the world. Having people support us on Patreon with our short-term goal and day to day costs will allow us to focus on the long-term goal.
