First of all I would like to mention the adoption of nine broiler hens that came to us via Barajas Airport from Alma Libertaria. They were part of a consignment of two-day-old chicks held by customs. These chicks are not meant to live for more than 42 days, which is the age they are killed for meat. However, our chicks, the survivors, are now almost 120 days old and enjoying life in spite of them being cloned and organically manipulated. They came to us at 43 days and have lived a happy life. They are in different states of health, although two of them look as if they are enjoying life and will live on. What is sad about this is that these chicks, if they live, develop chronic conditions affecting their legs.
We have a dressage horse called Domingo looking for a forever home where he can live retired from competition. Domingo is a 12 year-old Dutch Warmblood. He’s still very strong, but not up to high level competition. His owners love him and want him to go to a home where he will be loved in turn.
Sadly our pig Dottie died just before Christmas. She died from sepsis which had spread, despite her surgery. Sometimes you can do everything necessary but when an animal’s time comes, there’s nothing you can do about it.
One of our perimeter walls was blown down by heavy winds at the end of 2020. Luckily for us, one of our volunteers posted a cry for help which was picked up by a building company that was pleased to send men who helped us rebuild.
Here we would like to thank Karen, Sharon and Lyne, who call Cavalli Foundation their happy place. We are certainly very pleased to have them around!
Our book, Nevado, The Cock-A-Doodle-Doo Who Lost His Voice, sold out over Christmas. We have just received a new shipment for those of you who would like to buy a copy. Buy a book. Save a life!
