Goat mama

I’m an adoptive parent!! To a lovely little goat named Annie, who resides at the Farm Sanctuary shelter in northern California. Her adoption paperwork arrived in the mail today and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m sponsoring her for a full year and am planning to visit the California shelter to meet her before that year is up!

Annie and her two sons, Hal and Goodall, were rescued from a slaughterhouse where they were being abused and neglected – and were literally fighting for their lives. Despite her rough road in life, the Farm Sanctuary crew tells me Annie has retained her loving spirit and persevered – she is a doting mother, protective and kind, and loves dried fruit and apples! 🙂 To read more about Annie, her sons, and their friends who were also rescued from this cruel environment, check out their story.

For more on Farm Sanctuary – an amazing organization that rescues animals from the inhumane practices of the factory farm industry – check out their story.

And for a big smile, feel free to visit Nicopedia any time to check out Annie’s happy grin. 🙂

P.S. The irony isn’t lost on me that Annie is the name of my parents’ beloved schnauzer, who passed away three years ago. RIP, sweet girl. Your spirit lives on.
