Like many people, the pandemic inspired Monique Monelle and her husband to take up a new hobby during lockdown. But their new ‘hobby’ was wonderfully unusual. They were inspired to rescue ex-battery hens.
Monique talks about what it was like when the hens first arrived, how she and her husband take care of them when they’re not feeling well, and how she fell in love with their unique personalities.
Animal lovers and anyone interested in starting their own rescue will love this heartwarming episode.

For the past two years, the pandemic has created much havoc throughout the world, but for one young person, the lockdown brought a silver-lining.
Savannah Allen from Adelaide, South Australia shares her story of having to lockdown near a petting zoo.
Savannah and her family soon realized that the baby lambs they had come to know and love had a terrible fate awaiting them, as often is the case for animals used for profit. So, she and her family rescued the four lambs.
Savannah talks about her love of animals, wanting to start her own sanctuary and what she has learned from this experience.
