Snowy is a sweet little fallow deer. She was found tangled up in the back fence of a family property in Pullenvale in December, 2021. She had a broken leg and ticks all over her, but after lots of care she now runs just as fast as the other deer and is very friendly, capable and polite.

When she was a baby, she was covered in white spots so the family who found her decided to name her ‘Snowy’. The spots have faded a little now, but but they can still be seen in her lighter summer coat.


When you sponsor Snowy, 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 Snowy

• Lyell Deer Sanctuary pen and stickers

• Quarterly letters/updates from Snowy 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 Snowy as often as you like

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

Snowy 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.
