Franklin and Eli

Get to know more about Franklin and Eli

Franklin was surrendered into our care when he was only one day old. Found by the side of the road alone and cold he was taken to a nearby vet surgery who then contacted us. How these young lambs end up in his situation is always a mystery to us but we assume that some fall off a transport truck. Franklin will never see his mum again but at least he is now safe and in the good hands of one of our carers. Franklin is very recognisable due to his ears that stick out and remind us of those of an elephant. As long as he doesn’t go outside on a windy day we think he will be fine!

Eli was sadly orphaned at birth and surrendered into our care. He quickly teamed up with Franklin and the pair are now inseparable. Eli is healthy and happy and looking forward to a long life with his new friend.
