Wildlife in Care

At HideAway Haven we rescue, rehabilitate and release our precious wildlife.  Follow the story of our kids in care.


The call of the wild called me again and I left home to answer it.  It was my third morning in the wild when I hear my Mummy calling me.  She had come looking for me, climbing over electric fences and gates, walking through creeks and past some rather friendly cows.  So I answered my Mummy with my call.  She sounded so excited to hear me.  We couldn't see each other yet, but we kept calling to each other.  Finally Mummy saw me and climbed over a fence through a creek bed and over another fence.  'Sammie Jo' she said 'how am I going to get you home?' I didn't go straight to her for cuddles coz I needed to show her the way home.  I led the way and showed how to get over a fence (non electric) and through the paddocks till we were close to home.  Then we had our cuddles and I held Mummy's hand till we got home.  I had a yummy bottle of warm milk and Joslyn removed all my ticks.  I have stayed close to home and am getting lots of night time cuddles now.  Not sure what I was thinking!!  I am helping out by taking care of Josie when she is outside, enjoying my bottles and snacks and of course lots of attention.

Auntie Pauline from Dreamers Dream Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is always a such a huge support and comfort to my Mummies when they worry about me.  Mummy knows I might find a mob I will want to stay with one day and I know she understands that.  I know she will always be there when I need her.  Auntie Pauline tells Mummy she has done a fantastic job of raising me but now I need to decide now where I want to live.
