Every year Animal Liberation Victoria rescuers and foster carers save the lives of newborn lambs. Many are orphaned as their mums are too sick to survive the birth, or are taken away to be slaughtered leaving their babies behind. The lambs are often on the brink of death, freezing cold, starving, weak, sometimes injured or partially crippled. The lambs and their carers desperately need your help!
A sachet of electrolytes and Nutrigel- critical for lambs when first rescued and needing an immediate boost to keep them alive.
A week’s worth of nappies – because little lambs need to be kept warm inside, and they poo and wee A LOT!
Colostrum for an orphaned lamb, which is critical for a newborn who never got to drink any of their mum’s milk.
Bottles, lamb-specific teats, grass hay, jumpers and heaters for our carers to feed and raise their foster babies with.
A tub of probiotics for all our foster carers to use to restore the balance in the lambs’ tummies when they’re unwell – this has saved many lives!
A bag of formula to feed one lamb until s/he is weaned.
A vet visit and antibiotics.
Desexing (males), vaccination and worming which is essential for all our lambs before they go to their forever homes

Animal agriculture is a leading cause of global warming, water usage, oceanic dead zones, land clearing, and species extinction. We save lives and the planet when we don't wear animals.
Some of the supposed 'animal free' testing alternatives aren't actually cruelty free...
The term 'cruelty-free' in cosmetics has become synonymous with 'animal testing free', but even without animal testing, animals are harmed in the beauty industry.
