Poor sweet Veronica. Off and on for months now, Veronica had been vomiting. A lot. She had several vet visits because of it. We did blood tests, different medications, different foods. She would seem better for a while, then be back to excessive barfing. A few weeks ago, she stopped using her litter box and we knew there must be something really wrong. She had been boarding at the vet since then so they could try to nail down exactly what was going on. An xray showed nothing unusual, and she seemed perfectly fine at the vet clinic!

Little Peony was back and forth to the vet several times since her rescue. She wasn’t growing and thriving as well as her three sisters. Though her foster mom and our vets did their best with force feeding, medications and treatment, Peony’s little body just couldn’t fight whatever it was that was making her unwell, and she passed away in her foster home yesterday. We’re heartbroken again. Thanks to Peony’s foster mom for trying your best, and to our vets who do everything they can to help all these little souls. We are thankful that we were able to rescue… read more >>

Cheesecake was hospitalized last week due to liver issues, then returned to her foster home as it seemed she was feeling better. She took a turn for the worse and had to be returned to the vet. She’s been there for three days now, and will be staying for the weekend. Cheesecake is feeling a bit better, but she’s still not out of the woods yet. Then, our beautiful Veronica ended up at the vet yesterday due to stomach and urinary issues. She’ll be staying at the vet for the weekend for tests and treatment too. We could really use… read more >>

Ladybird Animal Sanctuary’s Third Annual Spring Fair Hamilton Music Notes, by Ric Taylor, May 1- 7, 2014 The only thing bigger than the Ladybird Sideshow’s collective voices is their hearts. While they came together for a mutual musical admiration, the Ladybirds have transformed their mutual love of animals into a non–profit organization to help animals in need. With their annual Spring Fair this weekend, Melissa McClelland, Janine Stoll and Lisa Winn are focusing their talents on raising money to help more in–danger animals with their Ladybird Sanctuary. “Melissa, Janine and I have been friends and musical cohorts for a number… read more >>

Basil would like to remind you that if you’re thinking of giving a bunny as a gift this Easter, please make it chocolate or stuffed toy rabbit. Rabbits are a 10 year commitment and thousands of ex-Easter bunnies are abandoned to shelters or into the wild each year when their novelty wears off. Animals should never be an impulse buy or given as a gift. Make this Easter wonderful for everyone…including bunnies! Basil will be available for adoption soon!
