How To Adopt The Lambs We Rescue

Why we need people to adopt the lambs we rescue

Lamb Care Australia is not a sanctuary so there is no centralised location for you to visit. The organisation therefore relies not only on its network of Foster Carers but also on finding homes to adopt the lambs we rescue. 

Currently we operate only within Victoria so are unable to adopt lambs out to interstate applicants. 


What you will need to have

If you have sufficient land, adequate fencing and are prepared to keep and care for the lambs for the term of their natural life (including being able to provide vet care when needed) you may be exactly who we are looking for.

You will also need a PIC (Property Identification Code) which is obtainable free of charge from

Is there a mimimum number of lambs I need to adopt?

Sheep can live to approximately 12 – 14 years and make excellent companion animals when cared for with love and affection. They are flock animals so are best when they have a small group of friends with whom to live. For that reason Lamb Care Australia adopts out lambs in a minimum of 2 with preference for those who have other sheep already on their property or who are prepared to adopt a greater number of lambs.


How to apply to be a forever home

If you think you would be a suitable candidate to adopt some of the lambs we rescue, please complete the following application form. 

It is not in the lamb’s best interest to be adopted and returned if the adoption is not successful. Therefore we go to the trouble of examining your application form in detail. We reserve the right to not provide reasons if we choose to not proceed with any expression of interest or application.

If your application is approved we will decide which lambs would best suit your situation.
