This Saturday, November 5th, the ARLGP will have four pygmy goats available for adoption when we open at 10am.
The goats, Annabelle, Primrose, George and Boomer, are approximately 6-months-old. They arrived at the ARLGP back in June as part of a case with the State of Maine Animal Welfare Agency. Since their arrival, they have resided at an ARLGP foster home (well, technically a foster farm) and are now ready to hoof their way to a new, permanent farm. They will be available to be seen and adopted this Saturday from 10am-noon.
Interested in adopting a goat?
Our goal is to send all four goats to homes where they can enjoy the good goat life, with lots of room to stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors. Goats thrive with at least one other goat companion. On Saturday, they can be adopted as a group or in pairs. All four of our adoptable goats have done well at their foster farm with other animals (dogs, cats, chickens) and children of all ages. They are incredibly social. Generally speaking, pygmy goats can grow to be 50-80 pounds. Our staff will be on-hand Saturday to chat with interested adopters about their needs. The adoption fee is $60 per female, $80 per male.
If you or someone you know would be a great home for our goat friends, please attend our GOAT-E-O on Saturday to meet them and speak with our staff. They are currently at their foster farm and are not available to be seen prior to Saturday’s adoption event.
