Preschool Roundhouse Opening

James Brokenshire MP Opens Roundhouse

The ADO Mini-Explorers children, staff and parents had a very special guest on Friday 11th May, when Old Bexley and Sidcup MP, James Brokenshire and his lovely wife Cathy, visited the Preschool for the official opening of our Roundhouse. We would like to thank James for taking time out of his very busy schedule in his new role in government as Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, to support us as a local community focussed company.

Another Achievement Winner

Lewis Sticks To His Tasks To Become A Winner

We are pleased to announce that our 7th Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner is Lewis Stickings. Voted by his peers, Lewis has been Mr Dependable for at least a year now, volunteering on a Saturday to be a key member of the animal care team. Lewis always turns up, yes even when we had thick snow recently, working the Saturday session at both Poets Corner and at the main office, cracking on with his job come rain or shine. Recently completing two weeks of work experience at ADO, Lewis, currently studying at Hadlow Animal Management College, would like to work towards becoming a Marine Biologist eventually. He's pretty handy at catching the Guinea Pigs, so marine life should be easy-peasy! He has pledged his prize money towards building a new custom made enclosure for Bertha, ADO's enormous Burmese Python. Well done Lewis, a top man!

Legend Bob Passes Away

Bob Finally Says Goodbye To Us All

When it comes to legends, Bob the Bearded Dragon was up there with the most popular animals we have ever had working with us here at ADO. Sadly he passed away yesterday evening in his sleep. 

Bob joined us at the very beginning of Animal Days Out and was part of the first ever set of animals we purchased. He was already 5-6 years old in 2011, so he must have been probably 13 years old at the end. A fine innings for a Bearded Dragon!

He was very popular and with his late partner Betty, they were a great double act at events, meeting thousands of people during their formative years and helping many children, young people and adults overcome fears and giving them confidence.. He sired over 30 baby Bearded Dragons with Betty, out living some of them. 

Bob will never be forgotten. RIP Bob.

Silly Sally By Name, Silly Sally By Nature!

Go Fund Me For Sally

Our beautiful therapy horse Silly Sally recently obtained a serious wound which has required around the clock care. Although Sally is on the mend, she still requires treatment, which has all proven to be very costly. As we are a small Not For Profit Community Interest Company, we have set up the Go Fund Me page to try and help cover some of Sally's vet bills and enable us to continue to provide the best possible care for her and get her well again for the benefit of the children, young people and adults that access her through equine therapy.

Calling All Of Our ADO Buddies & Friends of ADO

We have started up a Go-Fund Me Page for our lovely female Meerkat Minx. Unfortunately Minx has had to be separated from our other Meerkat's, Molly and Marvin, due to a constant battle for Marvin's attention. Unfortunately, as Minx is Marvin's brother, he chose Molly as his partner, which has caused some friction in the camp. Being separated from the other Meerkat's has lowered the spirits of Minx, as she has been placed into a temporary enclosure and is on her own. She has lots of human friends, who are part of her family, but really needs another boy Meerkat to partner.

As a Not For Profit Community Interest Company we simply don't have the funds currently to get Minx a male friend so she can start her own gang. Meerkat's take quite a bit of money to care for. For Minx we will need to build her a suitable enriched enclosure and ensure that it is both fox proof and escape proof. This is considerably more expensive than say a Guinea Pig enclosure. We will also need to make sure we have plans to keep an area suitably heated in winter, as Meerkats will struggle when it gets cold.

Our Meerkats have brought joy to many of our customers visiting Poets Corner. We would like to think that the donations raised from Go Fund Me will be an investment so that many more children, young people and adults can enjoy the presence of Meerkats on our site. I mean, its not everyday you get an opportunity to see Meerkats close up and personal in Welling! But that's where you come in 😊.

We have 2.500 likes on this page and just a single £1 from you all can much a difference to Minx's life. So if you can, please donate. It will mean the world to us at ADO to be able to give Minx her own partner and also a fresh enclosure for a fresh start.

Any donations of £50 or more, will have the opportunity to meet and be thanked by Minx in person. Please like, share and spread the word.

Thanks In Advance

The ADO Team 🐾

Please vist the GO FUND ME PAGE HERE> to donate.

ADDENDUM - 27th October 2017

We are pleased to announce that the plea to help raise funds to find a partner meerkat for Minx has helped enormously, to the extent we have now sourced and purchased a young boy meerkat. In the end we raised nearly £400 through Go Fund Me and private donations to be able to buy a young meerkat from a specialist breeder in the West Country. The young Meerkat is currently in quarantine, but will soon be introduced to Minx slowly over a two week period so that she gets used to his smells and noises. Once we are happy that her curiosity gets to the stage she wants to meet him without barriers, we will let them meet under strict controlled circumstances. Although they look lovely and cuddly, female Meerkats can be devastatingly cruel if they reject another Meerkat, so we have to be sure the bond is there. 

At the moment Mike the Meerkat is bonding with humans and being young and lively is always hungry and seeking attention.
