The Old Goats Home & Rescue journey began when our family saw a devastating amount of goats headed to slaughter or going without homes. Due to lack of education and care in communities, goats were being tossed out of the homes they knew, and being left to fend for themselves. Other goat rescues had started turning our goats away because there was no room. Neglect, slaughtering, and leaving goats behind became more and more prominent. Goats were withering in rescues longer than they should due to personality issues and their age. After seeing the tragedy before us, we saw a way we could help these neglected goats and give them a place a soft place to land.
Because of our first Older goat Skippy and his ever changing needs as he grew older, The Old Goats Home and Rescue was born.
Skippy, Zombie George, Sally, Bam Bam, Pepper, Cal and Frack were our very first residents, they were getting to the point where they needed specialized care. I worked hard to find out just what their needs were in relation to keeping them healthy, happy and engaged in life. We have been up and running for 4 years but only went non profit in January 2020 due to the large needs of the community to find places for older or more challenging goatie cases. I love to research, I love to think outside of the box in order to give the best possible outcome for each individual goats needs in my care. It's a challenge, but one i accept with huge amounts of love and care. We now give shelter to well over 200 animals, most of which are goats, but in extreme cases we do open our doors to other species.
We keep our doors open where possible because we believe......
EVERYBODY deserves a chance
EVERYBODY deserves to feel loved &
EVERYBODY deserves a forever home.
