Welcome to Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre!
The Rescue Centre rescued 6 Barn Owl chicks from Auburn, SA, after their nest was destroyed by another tree falling onto it. They were in shock, cold and hungry when they arrived, but after a night in the incubator they bounced back with a vengence! You can follow their progress on our Facebook page.
Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre is a not for profit organisation providing a free community service to rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned native animals and birds brought to the Centre, located in Cherry Gardens SA.
No collection service is provided.
Approx 300 orphaned and injured animals and birds are housed throughout 6 acres of onsite facilities. Minton Farm Native Animal Rescue Centre is owned and managed by Mrs. Bev Langley. Over 10,700 injured and orphaned creatures have been housed onsite that have been referred to the Centre by Councils, Cleland Wildlife, Adelaide Zoo and 18 Vets.
Animals rescued include: kangaroos, possums, echidnas, koalas, wombats, and lizards.
Birds rescued include: kookaburras,Tawny frogmouth, magpies, owls, hawks, eagles, lorikeets, rosellas and large parrots to name a few.
Volunteering helps Minton Farm.
Over 500 volunteers aged 18 yrs and over have been trained at the centre, helping out on a weekly roster on a Tuesday or a Thursday from 10am to 2pm to feed and maintain the creatures, and to build enclosures and maintain the Rescue Centre.
Tea and coffee are provided.

Proposed circular bird of prey flight.
A new facility to build raptor wing muscle tone
in preparation for release is proposed.
A paddock has been levelled and funds are being sought to construt a round flight with a central column to encourage birds to fly around it with no end in sight. This will give the birds a greater fitness and better chance of survival once released.
There is a very exciting opportunity for Minton Farm to access funding to build a specialist rehab facility for birds of prey but we need your help!
Please vote for our Fund My Neighbourhood project so that we can establish a circular flight to allow for a large flying space for our birds of prey to assist in their recovery before release.
For more information and to vote visit: https://fundmyneighbourhood.yoursay.sa.gov.au/rounds/fund-my-neighbourhood-2017/ideas/circular-flight-gives-raptors-improved-cycle-of-life
Voting continues until 20th November within a 5 km radius of Cherry Gardens. This includes Glenalta, Hawthorndene, Happy Valley, Mt Bold, Upper Sturt, Heathfield, Longwood, Bradbury, and Scott Creek Suburbs to name a few. If you have friends, neighbours, relatives within these areas please share the link with them and encourage them to vote for Minton Farm to help us get some Government funds to build a circular flight for injured and orphaned birds of prey? We need as many votes as possible. It is necessary to vote for 3 projects, hopefully we are one of them!
Sincere thanks, Bev. Langley
We would be deeply grateful for this funding, the entirety to be put into new Raptor Rehabilitation facilities at the Rescue Centre.
