Jean Claude Van Lamme
Birth date: 2nd June 2019 Arrival date: 6 June 2019
Jean Claude Van Lamme was born on a property with sheep in the bitterly cold first few days of winter, 2019. Found by the property owner all on his own, little Jean Claude was surrendered to the RSPCA as the property owner was not willing to provide the level of care a young orphaned lamb requires.
Little Oak Sanctuary was contacted and Jean Claude has now found safety. This little fellow will be looked after by some of our wonderful lamb foster carers, before joining the flock when he is big enough.
You can help us continue to provide care for vulnerable lambs like Jean Claude by sponsoring him below.
Help Protect Sheep
Far from how they are commonly portrayed, sheep are highly intelligent individuals who will form friendships with particular other sheep. Despite their gentle nature and capacity to suffer as any other animal, sheep aren't protected by the same laws as dogs and cats. 'Codes of Practice' side-step the rules, meaning that painful procedures can be undertaken without pain relief, and their lives are routinely ended well before their natural lifespan has been reached. It doesn't have to be this way.
When you sponsor a Little Oak lamb or sheep you will be helping protect all sheep. Your sponsorship will support Little Oak's essential advocacy work – sharing the stories of individual sheep and the plight of their kind across the nation.
Sponsor today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about sheep through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly sponsors. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for the sheep at Little Oak, and their kind across Australia.
