No Kidding, it’s Miss Chief!

Pets in the Park

“Are you kidding me?” the announcer cried as a cheeky goat entered the dog agility ring at the Stonnington Pets in the Park event on Sunday.  Tagging along behind the perky little white goat was her human companion from Edgar’s Mission, Pam Ahern.  But ‘Could she tackle the course set for beloved pooches?’ was the thought racing through the minds of those gathered. Delivering a resounding ‘yes’ was the adorable Miss Chief as she happily made her way through tunnels and into the hearts of many.

“You know we tend to think of farm animals differently,” explained Pam, the Founder and Director of the not for profit animal charity Edgar’s Mission, “but once you get to know them you realise the differences are limited to outwardly appearances only. And these differences most certainly do not justify the way many farm animals are treated.”  Also on hand to show one and all just how much sheep love to be petted and made a fuss over was the affable Timmy, a now rather large sheep who was rescued from the side of the road as a tiny baby by a kind hearted motorist.Pets in the Park

The day attracted thousands of visitors and for many it was their first chance at getting up close and personal with farm animals.  “And we trust they will walk away with a new found love and respect for these much maligned animals as we do,” concluded Pam.

  1. I am so happy that I have found another animal sanctuary just like the one we have back here in England called Hillside based in Norfolk dedicated to the rescue and care of animals mostly from the intensive farm factory industry. I found the video featuring the rescue of the battery hens really moving. It’s a shame not more farmers out there can have a change of heart like the one mentioned in the video. Hats of to you Edgars Mission for helping animals in need.

  2. I live in Northern California and want to thank you for the amazing work you are doing to raise the consciousness on the planet against the abuse and neglect of animals. I was very inspired by your videos especially the “First Sunshine for 752 rescued hens” that I found on Facebook. I would like to know if you can tell me the name of the song and artist who plays the music in that video. Very inspiring and I would appreciate it if you would let me know.
    Thank you for all you do!!!!
