Alpacas approx 8 years old, sheared, dewormed, in good health. Alpacas need 1/4 acre pasture per animal and decent quality hay. They need to be sheared once a year and have their feet done and dewormed a few times yearly. You can learn to do feet and deworming yourself and information for having them sheared yearly will come with them. Fencing requirements are mostly for predatory control as they don’t test fence lines. a simple three sided shelter for protection from the elements is appropriate. Adoption fee is 100 each and all have nice quality fleece. Alpacas must be kept in pairs or even better groups of three as they need same species companionship. Some are halter trained.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
