Donations with a Difference
Would you like to give nutritious delicious treats to the rescued residents at animal sanctuaries? Well now you can! Purchase Oat Baaas, Chickie Bickies, Doggy Bags or Cat Cookies, select the sanctuary you would like them to go to, and Happier Pets will send them on your behalf, to be gobbled down by your favourite rescued animals.
The sanctuaries to choose from are listed below (I hope to add more soon) and the snacks available are shown at the bottom of the page. You can purchase treats to donate to any one or combination of these sanctuaries, as a stand alone order or as part of an order for yourself.
No freight charges are added to these donated treats, which will be sent to the sanctuaries once a box is filled.
Lefty’s Place is a small animal refuge in North East Victoria run by photographer, Tamara Kenneally. Named after her beloved sheep Lefty, it is home to rescued sheep, chickens, peahens, ducks, dogs and cats from a variety of backgrounds.
The main goal of Lefty’s Place is to document each animal's life from the time that they are in the farms/abattoirs etc through to their new and happy lives at Lefty’s Place.
