Sasha arrived at Ippoasi thanks to the same activist who brought Ursus. He was very small when he arrived but he could assert himself easily. He actually started to chase after everyone, showing right away his very strong character. He now owns the title of “most feared inhabitant of Ippoasi” as his favourite pastime is to try to bite the legs of the volunteers.

Anastasia arrived at the shelter together with the deceased Rebecca. She soon became very close to Sasha, who did not lose sight of her for any moment. She also became very attached to big Ursus. In the evening they go to sleep together, like a little family!

Fierobecco is a swan-like goose who loves to sing loudly. He was literally thrown into our arms by the person who wanted to get rid of him and threatened to kill him if we didn’t take him. We noticed almost immediately with great horror that he lacks the upper part of the beak, most certainly due to the violence to which he was subjected. He settled in well in his new home, getting along with the roosters and hens, but his favorite company are Sorti and Dilì!

Sorti & Dilì
Sorti & Dilì were rescued by a sensitive person who took them to the shelter, where they can finally lead a life of great food, dive into the pool and hang out in the chicken coop! The two never separate and always run around together!
