Sheep of Little Oak Animal Sanctuary

Little Oak Farm Animal Sanctuary is currently home to 33 sheep from a large variety of backgrounds.  Although we often think of sheep as being so alike they are almost indistinguishable, each sheep is indeed an individual and has a very distinct character with their own personality.  To learn more about them and the issues that face their kind in Australia, visit their page.  To support our work for sheep you can donate to us (donations over $2 are tax deductible) or support a sheep through a one off or ongoing sponsorship of them.

Sponsor a Lamb or 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.
