THE HAY BALE APPEAL!

I took this photo showing the fields around MoonAcre bursting with fresh cut hay.

We need to place the order for our rescued horses before we miss out on this top quality product. We use 2 large bales per week.

Our supplier is a local farmer who charges a fair price. We pay Euro 40 per bale including delivery and loading into our barn.

We are surviving week to week so we are not in a position to fund this vital purchase ourselves. Provision of hay feed for our 15 resident rescue horses is non negotiable – it MUST be achieved!

I am asking our friends and supporters everywhere to please join together to raise the cost of 1 truck load of hay – 22 bales. This will take us safely through to August.

Please see the poster for full details of how to sponsor a bale of hay – and please support our appeal!

FOR ADOPTION:

Baby TILLY is ready to join a family of her own!

I am so happy to be able to promote 12 months old TILLY for adoption. She has the most loving nature and just wants to be hugged and cuddled. She is highly intelligent and learns everything instantly. She is a most impressive young dog!

TILLY is housetrained, lead trained, recall trained, car trained, and very well socialised with adults, children and other dogs. She has no issues at all with cats, she is excellent around horses and pigs!

TILLY is in perfect health, has her passport in place, she is blood tested, spayed, chipped, vaccinated etc, and now just needs a loving home!

Please contact me (Rochelle van Buuren) or MoonAcre Sanctuary for more information on how to apply to adopt our TILLY.

FAEDON

FOR ADOPTION: As we prepare for CLIO, one of our Greek Shepherd Dog twins, to fly to her new home in UK, we are also hoping that someone will fall in love with her brother FAEDON and get him out of rescue too!

FAEDON is 18 months old and 25 kgs at present. He is a fluffy bundle of sweetness! He loves human company, and is playful and puppy-like with other dogs. FAEDON is well behaved, has very good house manners, is house trained, lead trained, car trained, and is lovely to walk on short or long lead. He has no issues off lead and does not run away. FAEDON is very much a home dog, but his breed needs daily, long walks. In fact, FAEDON is the top choice for hiking and mountain climbing with our volunteers.

We are looking for a quiet, countryside home, in a family with time to exercise and groom their dog. We would like to see FAEDON being an integral member of the family.

Please contact me personally (Rochelle van Buuren) or MoonAcre Sanctuary to make an enquiry about adopting gentle FAEDON.

MOONACRE SANCTUARY: MISSION to MACEDONIA:

Dear Friends & Supporters, I am currently in Macedonia shadowing rescuers working with street dogs. This is the experience of a lifetime – nothing like Cyprus – and without doubt the place that I, as the Founder of MOONACRE SANCTUARY, am meant to be at this moment in time.

I will report my findings at the first opportunity. I want to THANK every one who donated to make this rescue journey a reality. By helping me reach Macedonia to retrieve 2 disabled dogs, you have made possible a “rescue corridor” for many more dogs who have no public presence and live out their sad lives on the streets in freezing temperatures. Many have survived like this for more than 10 years, and clearly they will not make it past the coming snows.

Today I will meet JIMMY & PENELOPE, the 2 disabled dogs and bring them to my cottage for their first experience of home life, before we fly back to MOONACRE together.

Thank you on behalf of all the lives you will save through MOONACRE’s MISSION to MACEDONIA.
