2/7 baxter has been working for the past two weeks to help an owner with health and financial concerns find homes for his alpaca herd. She advertised in the Texas Llama/Alpaca Rescue Group on Facebook and received four good applications which she turned over to the owner and she gave the applicants owner contact information and surrender forms and non breeding agreement forms. SWLR does not receive fees for rehomes. SWLR sometimes asks for a donation but rarely receives any donations for rehomes. baxter can only recall one donation for $250 for 4 llamas with one that was pregnant so it became 5 llamas.

2/23 Two llamas left baxter's for their new home today. They went to a really special home with young boys and fainting goats and lots of love for them.
Two other llamas went to their new home last week. Wonderful home with lots of experience and other llamas to add to the herd.
All 4 were trained to halter/lead & went into the trailer very easily. Volunteers have been working with the llamas here and it made all the difference. The pairs were mother/daughter with the daughters being born here. Lots of hours in training and caretaking to get the llamas ready to go.
Adoption fees of $200 each.
