I’d like to introduce you to a very special lady. Her name is Veronica Lake and she’s an ex-lab chicken.

Veronica came from the RSPCA who is unable to provide any further information about her background other than “she had been used for research and was in a bad state when she arrived.”

She now resides at Hogwatch Animal Sanctuary, Gippsland. 

When she first arrived at Hogwatch, with her colleague Alice Chook (who sadly passed away) she was enclosed in a run, with a house, inside the main run yard. They were completely overwhelmed by their newfound freedom, possibly never having been outside before. They walked carefully and slowly and after about ten days they were released into the main run, with the option to withdraw into their own space should they feel the need to. It took about another week for Alice to come out and free range with the main group.

She adapted quicker than Veronica Lake. Veronica walked around in a zombie-like state for another two weeks. Eventually she joined the brood.

She is a bossy girl now - still elegant, but braver now having made the transition into her brave new world.

[As told by Veronica’s guardian Janette - see below]

Artist –Janette ARNOLD-COLLINS (1962- )

All Artists are on a personal journey, mine revolves around exploring who I am, as a female, a mother, a nurturer and also it is about my understanding of my place and responsibility in this world. I hope my work and dialogue will encourage people to embrace change and consider how they can live and share compatibly, this beautiful planet, with all the species who call it home. I hope you will be inspired to participate in the healing of our world and all those in it.

My portraiture paintings have been exhibited in the prestigious Hidden Faces of the Archibald, She Who and The Great Southern Portrait Prize.

The profits from the sales of my work contribute to the funding required to continue  the work  we do here at HOGWATCH Farm Sanctuary.

 

HOGWATCH  Farm Sanctuary....we cultivate love…

“..animals should not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear..they are other nations...”

 

HOGWATCH is an emerging sanctuary in Gippsland Victoria.

We endeavour to protect and provide for rescued, surrendered or displaced farm animals enabling them to live for the duration of their natural lives in a loving environment as part of our family..

We are small and in the process of establishing suitable enclosures and yards for each individual or group of individuals that come into our care and as such they become part of our hearts...

We are self funded. 
If you would like to donate to the care of our lovely residents, you can do so through Pay-Pal hogwatch@iinet.net.au
