Kernel (Gus) Update

Kernel (renamed Gus) was a wee stray kitten lost in a cornfield who was rescued by our friends at The Ass Menagerie Sanctuary (TAMS).  This adorable kitten was quickly adopted by Tonia and her daughter Jessa.

First order of business was to introduce Gus to Tonia’s female cat Freya.  Gus, although small, has a large presence and thinks he is the king of the castle.  They are both still figuring out who is the boss.  Gus still has a lot of energy to burn and Freya is just unsure of him but we are confident, in time, they will be great friends.

Gus is a feisty little guy, playful and bounces around all over the place, climbing on everything!

He is a typical kitten who loves to play.

Don’t let his size fool you.  He can also be very destructive.

Tonia & her daughter Jessa love the Halloween season and always put up a Halloween tree.  Gus assumed the tree was there for his enjoyment and as you can see did a good job of destroying it.  LOL

Kittens can be a handful and even though Gus is going through a very destructive phase right now, mom Tonia loves him to bits.

Another Successful Pet/Animal Reiki Workshop Fundraiser

2015-05-09 17.03.22_Sil_Splash (1)

Thank you to the Wonderful Reiki Practitioners who made the third Pet Reiki Fundraising Workshop a great success.  The world is a better place when people focus on helping to heal animals.

Silvana__Lexi

Silvana (pictured above with her canine partner Lexi) is a Reiki Master and animal lover who is passionate about using Reiki energy to help heal the animals at the Sanctuary.  The success of the last Workshop on October 15, 2016 prompted her to continue teaching other Reiki Practitioners how to best help the animals.

Silvana Explains the Process

Animals are Divine Beings with souls that play a very important part in our lives. Animals will respond to Reiki quicker than people.  This is because they do not have blocks like we do from rigid mindsets. They are able to accept the Reiki energy for what it is without trying to analyze it.   A few examples of how Reiki healing can help animals is with pain relief, minimizing stress caused from changes of ownership or other home circumstances, it helps with grief, and it has been shown to boost the immune system.

The Workshop! 

The morning of the workshop was spent going over the practical part of Pet/Animal Reiki, using the manual Silvana put together as a guide.   Cookie & Cecil were on hand to receive energy and loving from the Practitioners.

The BCFS Farm 

Each animal accepts Reiki in their own way.  Some enjoy hands-on while others prefer Reiki beamed to them from a comfortable distance.

Larney, a 19 year old Hannovarian has a genetic disease called degenerative suspensory ligament. He is not a healthy horse and the vet has recommended euthaniza, but BCFS was trying medications to make him comfortable. There is no cure and it is a progressive disease.  His back end struggles with this disease. Larney received plenty of Reiki and love from the Practitioners.  When it is time for a person or animal to pass on, Reiki will assist in making the transition as peaceful as possible.  In Larney’s case, all the Reiki energy given to him proved to help him in a peaceful passing.

Read Larney’s story here

Splash our blind pony had glaucoma and inflammation in her eyes which caused her extreme pain.  She had been blind for a long time and removing her eyes merely took away the pain. She is in her early 20’s and is very healthy otherwise.  Splash loves on hands Reiki.

Chevy is a French Warmblood with a suspensory ligament injury but is not crippled like Larney. It’s mostly healed and he is sound (not limping). He’s not in any pain and is a healthy guy otherwise. He’s about 19 years old.  Chevy can be stand offish and usually accepts Reiki from a short distance away, but he made an energetic connection with Diane and allowed hands on and soaked up some loving from Kymberley.

All of the BCFS’s residents enjoyed receiving Reiki energy, in the manner they wanted and the Practitioner’s had wonderful experiences getting familiar with the BCFS residents.

A big thank you to volunteer Megan who was on hand to help with Elsa as some goats are territorial and will head butt strangers because they don’t belong.  Megan is excellent at handling all the animals at the Sanctuary and very knowledgeable as well.

What the Student’s had to say about the Workshop.

Kim&Larney
Kimberley showing Larney some loving,

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to take part in the Reiki training. Silvana created a warm, safe place for us to learn and she was a great teacher. Our time with the animals, practicing Reiki on them was such an incredible experience. To be with them with the intention to love and share Source energy for their healing was truly amazing! Thank you Amy and Silvana and all the animals at Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary!!!        Warmly, Kymberley

TM3
Terry giving Splash Reiki Energy,

I would highly recommend Silvana’s Animal Reiki Workshop.  It was informative and fun.  She is a thorough and compassionate teacher, with the highest integrity.  A wonderful winning experience for student and our furry friends benefiting from the interaction.  Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary is a worthy cause.     Terry Marie.

Cecil lies this way due to his painful joints.

Cecil has been diagnosed with Panosteitis (bone inflammation or growing pains) as well as bilateral elbow Dysplasia.    Cecil finally qualifies for the much needed elbow surgery that will end his life of pain.  There is an 85% chance that Cecil will fully recover in 5 months and lead a normal life without pain.  He is only 11 months  old and without surgery Cecil’s life of pain will continue and he will have a much shortened life.    Funds raised from this workshop will go directly to help fund this important surgery for Cecil.  BCFS does have a Go Fund page set up to help with costs.  If you can help, please Click to donate

Silvana has received requests from Practitioners who could not attend September 22nd to run another workshop.  She is looking at possibly running it again in November of this year.  If you are interested, please contact Silvana directly at silvanacronier@gmail.com.

Kernel, 8 week old kitten

Kernel the kitten was found by Leisa, from The Ass Menagerie Sanctuary, and her volunteer Victoria while they were picking corn for , “The Ass Menagerie Sanctuary” residents . He had an obvious eye infection and looked poorly in general.

IMG_2663

Kernel wasn’t sure about the whole rescue idea and it took quite some time, because for  a sickly looking critter he could move !

Once home his eye infection was treated, he was dewormed and rehydrated. Attempts at socialization were met with little hisses that quickly turned to snuggling and very loud purring !

IMG_2664

He was then taken to the vet where he obtained a clean bill of health including testing negative for feline leukaemia and feline immunodeficiency virus . He had his advantage treatment and his first vaccinations . The vet confirmed he is 8 wks of age.

IMG_2665

Kernel is now out of isolation and is making his presence known ! He is vocal and a bit confused about this new life, but settles quickly with reassurance into a tiny purring machine !

IMG_2666

TAMS is forever grateful to BCFS for uniting with us in the spirit of helping as many animals as they can ! Since TAMS does not rescue and adopt out , we appreciate their willingness to step in and provide adoption proceedings when these circumstances occur !

Kevin has been Adopted!

IMG_2035

Kevin a 1 year old Netherland Dwarf rabbit was transferred to BCFS’s foster home program in March 2018.  He wasn’t socialized well and did not like to be held.   Foster mom worked with Kevin to help him get used to being held and he eventually gobbled up affection as an interesting and fun bunny. He’s very curious and mostly fearless when it came to adventures and other animals.

IMG_2039

We are extremely happy to announce that Kevin has been adopted into a very bunny savvy home.  Dani & Blake and their 4 children will certainly keep Kevin active and happy.  Kevin will also have plenty of bunny friends with the family’s 3 other bunnies, Baby a female lion head, Penelope a female Holland Lop and Charlie (previously known as Squash) a Flemish Cross who was adopted from BCFS last year.

Adoptpic

We were lucky enough to already receive a wonderful update on Kevin.  New mom reports:

“On the ride home, I put Kevin in with Charlie, and they hit it off right away.  The idea behind stress bonding is to put them in a stressful situation (car ride) while closely monitoring them. The hope is, they lean on each other for support and comfort. Well, it worked!

crateCharlie&Kevin

When we got home, we slowly introduced the others, and there was only one scuffle I had to break up, between Kevin and Baby. Baby is the boss, she just needed Kevin to understand that. I think he got it LOL.

otherbunnies

This morning he has been hanging out in his litter box, snacking on hay, and all the other bunnies have taken turns visiting him, snuggling him, sharing his treats and even grooming him!

He’s still a little scared and unsure obviously, but it’s like he was meant to be with us. It’s just all been so easy!

Dani

His favorite spot to rest last night and this morning is on my shoulder, and I’ve even been getting the occasional kiss. I’m smitten.”

Thank you from all of us at BCFS for giving this sweet boy a happy home where he can continue to flourish.

And BCFS would like to send a very special thank you to foster mom Tonia for taking such good care of Kevin.

Kittens Adopted

 

Pic

Mama Cat with her 6 babies joined BCFS foster program April 2018.  Although Mama Cat was slated to be euthanized, BCFS took her in and had our Dunnville vet assess her and her six wee kittens.  Sadly three of the kittens quickly deteriorated and passed quietly in their sleep.  Mama deteriorated as well and became aggressive. She no longer cared for the kittens and was uncomfortable…. suffering.  The board, foster family and our veterinary discussed the possibilities and it decided with heavy hearts to have Mama euthanized.  The vets at Dunnville put their heads together and decided that it was likely a spinal cord injury from trauma.

Ginger&Ale2

The 3 remaining kittens thrived in their foster home and were quickly adopted.

IMG_2354

The brother and sister team of Ginger & Ale were adopted together and BCFS congratulates and thanks Denielle and Liam for giving these wee kittens a wonderful forever home.

The remaining male kitten Marlo has already bonded with his new mom Kailee and we are very thankful to Kailee for giving him a wonderful forever home.

AdoptionPic

BCFS would like to extend their appreciation to foster mom Mary for taking care of these kittens.   We are very grateful to our foster homes for the care they give BCFS’ animals.  Without our foster homes, we would not be able to continue our quest to save the world one animal at a time.

Orphaned Kittens Adopted

IMG_2213

Tiny black and white kittens were surrendered to the Humane Society after being found motherless in April 2018. They were so little at 2 to 3 weeks old and surprisingly hungry.

IMG_2214

The Humane Society asked if BCFS could take these two tiny beans and the answer was yes.  They ate well, were de-wormed and treated with Advantage for fleas.

new1

They thrived in the foster home being bottle fed by foster mom Leisa.  Initially, the black female kitten was touch and go, but she fought for her life and is now a spunky explorer.

New2

The black and white male kitten purrs loudly and loves being a lap cat.

We are happy that the kittens have been adopted together.  Riggins, Natalie & Michael’s 3 ½ year old Austrlian Shepherd/Collie mix, can’t wait to be with them as he misses their previous cat dearly.

IMG_2215

A big thank you to Leisa for fostering these 2 little kittens and thank you to BCFS’s volunteer Elisabeth for kitten sitting as needed.

Congratulations to the sweet orphaned kittens for finding their forever home with Natalie, Michael and fur-brother Riggins.

Update on Scarlett

30707573_10160319622800471_2919928473893994496_n

Scarlett, a blind 2-year-old Shih Tzu, joined the Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary (BCFS) foster program in April 2018 after travelling over 450 miles from New Jersey.  Weighing in at approximately 8 pounds, this teeny girl was having difficulties finding a home in NJ and was therefore transferred to the care of BCFS.  This story has a very happy ending as Scarlett found her perfect forever home with new mom Joy and fur sister Hailey.

Adopt

Joy is simply ecstatic to have Scarlett in her life.  She is just a tiny cling-on wanting to be by her side constantly.  She has a very good appetite.  When she finishes her food she goes to Hailey’s dish to sniff and finish off what she has left.  Scarlett also finishes her treats before Hailey and then likes to stand by in case Hailey does not finish hers.

IMG_2327

Joy is still working on housetraining.  Scarlett suffers from separation anxiety and Joy does not leave her for too long and does take her when and wherever she can.  Scarlett just loves the car rides.

IMG_2298

Within a short time, Scarlett navigated around the house remarkably well.  Her blindness does not seem to stop her as she climbs up the steps outside to come in the house and she climbs up 5 steps from the lower level to the entrance landing and then another 5 steps to the upper level.  She jumps up on all the couches, but  going down is difficult.

IMG_2321

All of us at BCFS are very happy that Scarlett has found her perfect forever home.

Scooter (Scout) Update

IMG_2058

Scout renamed Scooter, a 4-month-old Jack Russel Terrier mix, was adopted April, 2018.  She joined the Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary (BCFS) foster program in March, 2018 as an owner surrender. True to her breed, this sweet pup is a bundle of energy.

We received an update from Adoptive dad Bob

IMG_2208

She has a lot of energy and is doing well with training, usually one accident a day. (not unusual for a young pup).  She loves the grandchildren and loves to play fetch and be outside.  She is a bit of a handful, always into something, but she adores Bob and goes wherever he is.

IMG_2205

Scooter can be mischievous as seen above stealing a shoe.

bread

On one occasion as Bob was feeding the birds some bread, Scooter decided to steal it and not give it back.

dog

Lucky for Bob he has two young grandchildren and a grand puppy to keep Scooter entertained.

Thank you Bob, from all of us at BCFS, for your patience with this very busy pup!
