Maple the Beaver
This sweet gal joined us as an itty bitty baby, the size of a guinea pig, this spring. She was found abandoned by an heavy equipment operator who saw her sitting on the ground. She was most likely left by her mom as she has had and still has health issues. But with good vet care and medications we are so happy she is still with us. We actually didn't think she would survive. And survive she has - she thrives at 2nd Hand Ranch. We will continue to watch her development and care for her one day at a time. Until then she brings us great joy (and a lot of work and funding) and gives us the opportunity to educate so many on her antics, her habits and her instincts! We did a collage photo -8x10 for this sponsorship because she has been just so darn cute growing up here!
Otto is a magnificent domestic fox that joined us this year when his owner wanted him to have a life with other foxes to play, frolic and just be a fox. He is super sweet and loves to go for walks on his harness. He lives with Knox & Pumpkin and is quickly becoming their best friend. Domestic foxes are descendants of furfarm foxes and are docile and sweet in nature. They are like the golden retrievers of the fox world. Bred for calm temperaments and beautiful fur. Otto loves visitors and is always curious to see what treats folks have for him.
Knox Fox is a visitor favorite here! He's a domestic Silver fox who's mama, Dolly, was rescued from a fur farm. He was donated to the rescue by good friends of ours to keep Pumpkin, our rescued fox, company . Before Knox Pumpkin was always sad and dreamed of having a BFF. Now Knox and Pumpkin play all day cuddle and nap too. Knox is leash trained and often joins us on hikes in the timber. He loves chicken tenders but hasn't figured out the pen next to him is full of chickens!! He is amazing and has many visitors in love with him!
Niko the Scilian Donkey
Little Niko is so special here. His jaunty little attitude always makes us laugh. He was donated to us to be Olaf's best friend in the whole world. And he is! Olaf had no friends until this sweet little donkey joined us!. Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys are a separate breed of donkey originating from the islands of Sardinia and Sicily. Because they were so small they were employed to turn grinding stones for grain inside the peasants houses. The were also used to carry water and supplies for the families. Sweet little Niko loves his life of luxury here that's for sure!
Albert The Ox
Albert is a special rescue. He is a rescued veal calf, a by-product of the dairy industry. We rescued him at Christmas Time 2021 to teach and share his story. To share his love and joy and for children of all ages to hug and cuddle. He is a super loving boy that one day will grow up to be a driving Ox. Yes he is so smart he will teach everyone about the history of driving and how he can pull a cart ! But that is in the future. For now he is part of the family, going for walks in the woods, getting cuddles from visitors and enjoying his baby bottle ! His sponsorship includes a personalized certificate in a beautiful cover, a 8x10 photo collage, and his biography so far! You too can be part of his life here ! Life is grand at 2nd Hand!
Trinidad Turkey or T2 as we call her ! Trinidad was found all by herself wandering a local park. She had been attacked by something when a wonderful person happened on him and knew she needed help. Today she lives her best life yet and will live a long happy life as a beloved resident here. You can adopt her as your virtual pet!!
Her virtual adoption includes a beautiful 8x10 photo, a certificate in a stylish folder, information about her and us too. It can be mailed directly to a friend too!
