Calling all volunteers that are graffiti or paint artists. We are nearly finished the new Lush kitchen for "Kids can cook Vegan too" and would like to have the front wall designed with animals and fields or something like that as we are going to attach a small white picket fence from recycled wood from the old wool shed. The opening is the 12th Dec. if you are free and are able to please send me a pm. There will be a couple of reporters here but can not promise anything. If you can help but not until after that date please pm me as we may be able to work something out. You will be more then welcome to stay the night if you wish and meals will be providing. ...

When you live in a rural area and wish to go somewhere you always have to plan extra time because you never know what you will come across on your trip. Driving down Windellama Road I come across 2 people trying to get 2 calves back into their paddock. They had found a whole in the fence and thought it was a great idea to play by the road. Their mums was calling them to come back but they were a little confused so with a little team work we got them to go back though the fence and safe from the speeding traffic. I'm always happy when animals are safe and back with their family. The picture is not very clear but they are now safe and sound and back with their family. ... See MoreSee Less
Peanuts' mission is to bring as many disadvantage, neglected and abused children and animals together as possible and provide care and rehabilitation for both.
We provide care and rehabilitation for many neglected, abused animals, and nurturing for children from dysfunctional backgrounds.
Many aggressive, incarcerated criminals are reported to have tortured and/or murdered animals as children. This behaviour can stem from children seeing adults vent their anger and frustrations on helpless animals. Some children have had no other choices modeled for them.
We believe that by teaching children to care for animals with kindness and thoughtfulness will help break the cycle of abuse.
