Birthdate: August 2018 Arrival date: August 2020
This young sheep, Wilbur, was hand-raised by a young girl and her family after he fell off their neighbours' trailer suffering injuries to his eye. Wilbur was taken in and grew strong with their love and care. We were alerted when Wilbur was posted on a local classifieds site, he could have ended up in a terrible predicament. We’re very glad we can provide him with a safe forever home where he can make lasting friendships and live out his days safely.
Wilbur has formed a close friendship with Phillip the goat. As Wilbur is quite shy with other sheep, Phillip is acting as his protector and has been seen guarding 'their' stable in the evenings. This friendship will be one to watch!
You can become a sponsor of Wilbur 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.
