Abandoned for weeks without food or water, six goats languished in neglect. When Farm Sanctuary came to their rescue, they were emaciated, stricken with pneumonia, infested with parasites, and had badly rotten hooves. And shockingly, five of them were in the late stages of pregnancy.
Due the extreme neglect the goats endured, the pregnancies are extremely high-risk, so sanctuary staff have been providing around-the-clock care, keeping constant watch over the goats in their vulnerable state. Just recently, one of the goats, only a baby herself, gave birth to a beautiful little girl. Here, a sweet moment is shared between the new mother and her fragile baby, and it’s plain to see that their bond already runs deep.
