Minton Farm is non-profit, voluntary rescue centre for around 300 orphaned and injured animals and birds. It is owned and managed by Mrs. Bev Langley.
Thousands of injured and orphaned native animals and birds are referred to Minton Farm annually to be rescued, rehabilitated and released as a free community service.
The aim of the Centre is to rehabilitate and return them to their homes as quickly as possible, if they are 100% fit; otherwise they are taken into permanent care, or rehomed to a suitable home.
Over 10,200 animals and birds have been rescued to date, with more than 500 volunteers trained to assist in the work. Animals rescued include kangaroos, possums, echidnas, koalas, bats, and lizards. Birds rescued include kookaburras, magpies, owls, hawks, eagles, and parrots.
Volunteers are trained at the centre, ranging from 16 years to 70 years, helping out on a weekly roster to feed and maintain the creatures, and to build and maintain enclosures.
Donations are gratefully accepted to assist with feed and veterinary costs. Food donations of bird seed and breakfast cereals are always need. Animals can be sponsored at $35 a year to allow funds allocated for their food to be used for facility improvement.
