The Elvis Foundation

A young lamb named Elvis arrived into our care in November 2022 and quickly stole the hearts of everyone at LCA along with so many of our supporters.

The Elvis Foundation has been created to continue the legacy of this young lamb. It will help to raise funds for life saving surgeries.

Seeing Elvis enjoying life in his wheelchair, aptly called his “hoonmobile”, as he raced around his carer’s property with his best friend Stewie gave us all hope for a bright future for this precious boy. His vet and physio also had high hopes that all that was needed was time and exercise. It came as a shock to everyone when the prognosis suddenly turned as it became evident that the development of Elvis’ muscle strength was just not able to keep up with his natural weight gain. Every option was discussed in the hope of finding a solution for this otherwise very healthy lamb but sadly there was no option. The hearts of many, particularly his carer and her family, were broken when Elvis was euthanized 3 months after his arrival into our care.

Through this Foundation we hope that lambs and sheep in need will be able to have the long and happy life that was denied Elvis. A life that we are sure Elvis would be so pleased to see them have.

Total Amount Raised So Far:

Total spent so far on surgery and treatments: $8426.00

In early November 2023, young Eli had a front leg amputation. After many months of battling joint ill with no improvement we knew the only option for Eli was to have his leg removed. As with all amputations, the decision was not made without extensive discussion with one of our experienced vets.

Eli underwent surgery with Dr Josh Ellis at Romsey Veterinary Surgery. His surgery went well and he was soon home with his carer for pampering and extra special treats. Eli began to navigate how to stand without a front leg but, as with the other lambs who we have had undergo this operation, he soon adjusted to life as another lamb we affectionately refer to as a tripod lamb.

Eli’s total vet bill came to $3404.00



Serena was found in the middle of the paddock by the farmer unable to stand or walk. After being surrendered into our care, it was discovered that she had an infection in her spine. 

Serena is on a 6-week course of antibiotics to clear up an infection in her spine that has affected her walking. We are looking into further treatment to help her as any improvement will give her a better quality of life.

Serena’s vet bill came to $2233 .00


Coco is a bright and healthy lamb except for the fact that her back legs have not developed properly in utero. We can’t pinpoint the exact cause but the joints in her back legs from the hips down calcified and fused as she was developing in the womb leaving her with little movement in them. 

Coco has been supplied with a new wheelchair with money donated to The Elvis Foundation and now goes racing around her home at full speed. We are sure Elvis would approve of her handling of her new hoonmobile!

Coco’s vet bill came to $1594.00


On 21 April 2023, Mabel underwent a leg amputation to remove her front leg. She had caught it in a wire fence and the damage done made the leg unsavable.
Post surgery, Mabel recovered remarkably well and was actually moving around with far more ease without the leg. She no longer had to worry about dealing with the useless leg and the pain it was causing her.
Mabel’s vet bill came to $1195.00.
