We have partnered with the ASPCA to provide the loving forever-home to 21 goats who desperately need one. Among the dead and dying of what is being called the largest animal-cruelty case in the Northeast, all 21 of our beautiful new friends were rescued and brought to live with us. While they once lived in terror along with many other species of animals, all in deplorable conditions, they will now get to live the rest of their lives knowing nothing but care.
Please read more about the case here.
They have already received an overwhelming amount of love from the individuals who have met them so far. Read below for a bio on each of our 21 goats! Your generous sponsorship of these animals will help us continue to provide lifelong care in the form of food, shelter, and veterinary costs, among other expenses.
Bubblegum is the weakest of our goats after the terrible conditions he lived his past life in. But with lots of care, affection, and goodies, we plan on Bubblegum getting better (although it’s hard to imagine how he could possibly get any sweeter)!
Captain Sparrow is named after the pirate because of his deformed front leg, which must have grown incorrectly after an injury during his time at the abusive farm he was rescued from. Although it looks painful, Captain Sparrow grazes and hangs out with his brother Dos Equis without a complaint. We’ll continue to provide veterinary care to find the best fix for his leg!
Clarice gets her name from It’s A Wonderful Life after she arrived at the sanctuary with a bell around her neck. Although this bell may have been malice when she was at her old abusive farm, the joyful ringing of her arrival immediately found us saying “every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.” While Clarice no longer wears her bell, we can’t deny that she’s an angel!
Dos Equis is Captain Sparrow’s best friend, and if they aren’t biological brothers they certainly should be! Whenever Captain Sparrow needs to take a break because of his leg, Dos Equis is right there with him. And Dos Equis is always ready to get some love from the humans as well!
Elvis is a good boy, and funny too! Ever since his first hours at the sanctuary, Elvis’ favorite place to lounge around is in an empty kiddie pool in their yard. He always looks for good locations to lay down, like under cars or on tables!
Fawn is small compared to the other males, so he gets to spend his time with our cute baby goats! Although Fawn is still very shy of people, he always takes care of the babies when they’re in their barn at night.
Giselle is starting to warm up to her humans here at the sanctuary! Although she had a rough start while transitioning from her previous life of abuse, we decided she needed a glamorous name for the glamorous girl we know she is!
Glad, formerly Gladiola, is Bubblegum’s best friend and is usually sitting near him when they’re in their barn. Glad has always been a friendly boy, right from when he first stepped off the truck and ran straight to our caregivers to say hello!
Jasper is the biggest of the bunch – but don’t let his big horns and long beard intimidate you! Jasper is one of the friendliest and outgoing goats, and enjoys all the attention he gets as a crowd favorite!
