Rescue Date

Pygmy/Nubian Cross

Background

Jennifer was rescued from a backyard butcher, along with her twin brother Roger and more than 170 other animals.

Jennifer and her brother Roger were among dozens of animals we rescued from appalling neglect at a backyard butcher operation in New York’s Hudson Valley, in cooperation with three other sanctuaries.

Farm Sanctuary took in the sickest and weakest animals, including these extremely anemic, parasite-ridden young goats. We didn’t realize it, but their mother, Olive, was also on the property. Because she was among the less sick animals, she had been loaded onto a trailer heading to another sanctuary. But this tough mama had no intention of being separated from her kids. She started slamming the other goats in her trailer and calmed down only when she was removed, loaded into our trailer, and rejoined with Jennifer and Roger. Mom and kids were overjoyed to be reunited and safe at our New York Shelter. The entire family, including a third sibling born at the shelter, are goofballs who love to run and play. Like her mother and brother, Jennifer has the unusual habit of leaping into the hay feeder and standing smack-dab in the center when she eats. Here she will always be able to satisfy her appetite for life.
