Goat Milk For Wildlife - Even Kangaroos



We have new friends in Queensland, Australia. They wanted a little assistance in getting a Henry Milker. It started with a short email, "Dear sir I am a wildlife carer and we have a goat we use the milk for feeding our 17 baby possums in care at the moment. We care for many wild animals that need our assistance. We are members with the wildlife group and also with the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) . We care for everything from frogs, lizards, birds and kangaroos. We are on call 24 hours a day everyday of the week everyday of the year." Across Australia, RSPCA shelters receive more than 144,000 animals every year. While a large proportion of these animals are cats and dogs, RSPCA shelters also offer sanctuary to horses, livestock and a wide range of wild and native animals. Red Fence Farm donated a Henry Milker to Denis and Kristy. When they learned of the donation, they quickly replied "We have 2 new possums that have come into care today and call one Mike and the other one Henry (after a very special person) We can not thank you enough for you generosity we are so overwhelmed by it ."

  3. I am still totally overwhelmed by it all and I can not thank Mike enough. There are still some good people in the world who have great big hearts Mike you are a hero to us and thank you for helping us and helping helping our native animals. To some it may not seem like a lot but to us it is like giving us a million dollars. From the bottom of our hearts and our animals in care we thank you (thank you just does not seem like enough) From your new friends from Queensland Australia Denis, Kristy and the fuzzy kids in care

    1. This is wonderful. I knew that goat milk was versatile but not that versatile. : )
