Lulu is a favourite here - among humans anyway; unfortunately, she does get bullied by the other deer!

Lulu is a fallow deer. Her spotty fur tricks people into thinking she is a baby, but she is actually over 13 years old (quite an old lady in deer terms!). She was being illegally kept on a property in the middle of Brisbane city, and is lucky enough to have been brought to us for her senior years. She is a gentle, stubborn, sweet lady.

When you sponsor Lulu, you will be helping to provide food, comfortable environments and veterinary care for her and all the animals here at the Lyell Deer Sanctuary, and supporting us to be able to continue rescuing and rehabilitating more deer. We are entirely self-funded, and every little bit helps so much!

You will also receive:

• A personalised sponsorship certificate

• A full-colour photograph of Lulu

• Lyell Deer Sanctuary pen and stickers

• Quarterly letters/updates from Lulu herself, posted physically to the sponsor’s address (or delivered digitally if preferred). Children are encouraged to write back to her to receive a personal response!

• Free admission to the Deer Sanctuary for 12 months, so you can visit and cuddle Lulu as often as you like

• 10% off tickets to events at Lyell Deer Sanctuary, including our Christmas ‘Adopt-A-Reindeer’ activities and birthday parties

Lulu Sponsorship

  • We are a small family-run animal sanctuary, so when you sponsor an animal through us you get personal and individualised service. We are happy to adjust your sponsorship package to suit you: do you want to gift this to a whole family to enjoy together, or a whole class, or even delegate someone else to visit your deer if you can’t come yourself… Just send a message and we will try to find a solution that works for you.

  • Postage of your sponsorship merchandise is included in your sponsorship package, and dispatch will be within 2 business days of payment. The quarterly letters from your deer will be posted physically unless ‘Digital Option’ is selected.
