Susan Reynold’s Story: Ordinary People Making a Positive Difference

There is a trio of singer/songwriters in Hamilton who call themselves the Ladybird Sideshow Project. The women of this group have been friends for a decade and regardless of the changes in their lives, their love of music remains a tie that binds them to each other.

One of the Ladybirds met a cat named Oliver, who had been abandoned at a local shelter. Oliver spent a year in a cage at the shelter and was diagnosed with feline leukaemia. Although cats with feline leukaemia can live long, healthy lives, many shelters routinely euthanize cats who have this disease.

Lisa the Ladybird took Oliver home and then tried to find him a home. Thus began Ladybird Animal Sanctuary, a charitable organization of volunteers, foster homes and supporters who have rescued, vetted and rehomed hundreds of domestic animals.

Currently the Ladybirds are working on a big project—-creating a permanent sanctuary for rescued domestic and farm animals. We love the Ladybirds!
