Blinkin is a fun, affectionate Boer doe. She was born in 2009, and came to us with her Mother in 2010. So she has been with us almost 8 years! She's still ready and waiting for her forever home. She would love a herd with other goats similar to her to hang out with. She can be quite stubborn when she doesn't want to do something, but boy does she love to be loved on! She will freeze in place as long as you will pet her, and when that isn't enough she will cozy up to you and insist on more pets. This charming girl is more than ready for her forever humans and herd.

Pickles is a Yorkshire rescued from a cruelty neglect case in Washington as a piglet. Luckily, this boy was too young to remember the trauma his mother experienced, so he is friendly and fun. Pickles will need a home where he will never end up on a plate. He would love to be adopted with his brother, Gumball.

Django lived the first four years of his life on a heavy chain, treated like a lawnmower and nothing else. Now he has lots of friends and space to roam where he can learn what it means to be a happy, free goat. He has more to learn about interacting appropriately, especially when it comes to humans and fences. He enjoys shoulder rubs, treats, and testing new people to see what kind of reaction he can get out of them. He can only go to an experienced goat home, but for those that "get" him he is endless fun and entertainment with an endearing, playful personality. We are so grateful Django is unchained!

Sodapop is looking for a home that understands him. He was mishandled as a piglet, and as a consequence only cares for certain people and can be somewhat unpredictable. He will only be adopted to an experienced home. However, Sodapop is not without his charm! He's smart and food motivated, making him easy and fun to train. He knows his name, comes when called, and sits nicely. When his tummy is full, he loves to stretch out on his side for belly rubs. Maybe you're the partner Sodapop has been in need of all his life?

Betty was confiscated from a backyard butcher along with several other animals. She ended up at an L.A. County shelter and from there was transferred to Farm Sanctuary. After being treated for illness, trimmed, vaccinated, and shorn, she was feeling much better. This long-legged lady is shy and sometimes hides behind the other animals, but every visitor that comes out is one more person to teach her that most people are kind and can be trusted.

Grace is a lovely black and white goat. Grace was rescued from a neglect case by the Humane Society of the United States in conjunction with Douglas County Sheriff. They pulled 27 goats out of severe neglect. Many of the older goats had deformities due to inter-breeding and lack of basic care such as hoof trimming. Tiny babies were found locked in a dog crate. After being bottle-fed back to health, they were transferred to us and are now full grown.

A glamorous goat, with high-quality mohair (so says his shearer) and black lipstick and a black streak down his spine underneath his coat (adger. Jude doesn't seem to mind much. The fleece taken from an Angora goat is called mohair. A single goat produces between four and five kilograms of hair per year. Angoras are shorn twice a year, unlike sheep, which are shorn only once. Turkey, the United States, and South Africa are the top producers of mohair. For a long time, Angora goats were bred for their white coats. In 1998, the Colored Angora Goat Breeders Association was set up to promote breeding of colored Angoras. Now, Angora goats produce white, black (deep black to greys and silver), red (the color fades significantly as the goat gets older), and brownish fibers. Jude was brought to us by the Silver Creek Animal Sanctuary.

Pavarotti wakes a bit after dawn, stretches, moans, scratches, and generally lets everyone know he's waking up so they should too! He enjoys being rubbed behind his ears and will lift his head so his ears flop back and his teeth are visible. A goat as grand as his namesake. Pavarotti is a Boer mix with a neat rectangle on his forehead. He is super friendly and wants to say hi to everyone.

Jigsaw is not up for adoption (he is listed here for informational purposes only) and will live out his life at the Sanctuary as an Education Ambassador teaching people just how wonderful, loving, and intelligent pigs are. Please consider making a donation to help with his care. It takes a lot of good, yummy food to keep Jigsaw happy! Consider joining our Care Family and making a monthly donation to help care for animals like Jigsaw. Sign up now! http://sanctuaryone.org/donate-sponsor/carefamily/ Jigsaw was brought to us from the Boise Idaho Humane Society on January 13, 2012. He had been found on the side of the road near a hog farm. He was tiny, malnourished, and had pneumonia. We don't know if he escaped or if he was tossed out. But, either way, he was found as a tiny piglet and got healthy in a foster home before being transferred to us. There he learned to love humans and to get along with all kinds of animals. He even learned to sit on command. But, he was growing larger every day, and soon it was time for him to find a more permanent place to live. That was when he made the long trip to Sanctuary One with the help of two very dedicated humane society volunteers. He's a big sweetie and loves belly rubs. He's not as food-motivated as his sister, and he will pick the green beans out of his bowl and put them to the side just like a child. Jigsaw was named after the pig in the children's book, Granny Gomez and Jigsaw, about a Granny who needed a special pet and saved a baby pig from becoming someone's breakfast. Then she had someone to share her watermelon with and help her with jigsaw puzzles. Jigsaw loves when we have the sprinklers on in the pasture. He'll go over and rub his butt on the sprayer. What a goober!

Freddy and Friday are Ambassadors for our education and outreach programs and thus are NOT available for adoption. They are listed on Petfinder for informational purposes only. Consider joining our Care Family and making a monthly donation to help care for animals like Freddy and Friday. Sign up now! http://sanctuaryone.org/donate-sponsor/carefamily/ Freddy and Friday are two Pygmy mix goats rescued by Multnomah County Animal Control (Oregon). Both were dehorned, but even with this painful procedure done as little kids, Freddy grew false horns called scurs. They curve towards his head and need to be trimmed a couple times each year. Their family had loved them, but lost their home. They were surrendered along with a dog. The dog was adopted, but the goats had no where to go until they were transferred to us. These brothers and best buds are friendly and calm. They are always looking for new and exciting ways to keep the staff and volunteers on their toes. They love to be rubbed and will walk into the middle of a school group to get all the attention. They are so good they have even attended Sanctuary events and walked down the sidewalk on leash!

Lulu is so friendly we have asked her to be one of our permanent Education Ambassadors. She is not available for adoption. She is listed on PetFinder for informational purposes only. Please consider donating to help us with her care. It takes a lot of good, yummy food to keep Lulu happy! Consider joining our Care Family and making a monthly donation to help care for animals like Lulu. Sign up now! http://sanctuaryone.org/donate-sponsor/carefamily/ Lulu was brought to us from Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Washington on August 20th, 2010. She had been rescued from becoming a breeding sow in a factory farm. This fate is often worse than death. She would have most likely been forced to live her whole life in tiny cage, unable to even turn around. Pigs in factory farms often go insane much like people in internment camps. Breeding sows are repeatedly artificially inseminated, which is akin to rape for these intelligent and sensitive beings. They have litter after litter of babies who are only allowed to nurse through metal bars, for fear of being crushed in the terribly cramped quarters. Babies are taken away as soon as possible to fatten up for slaughter and to force the mothers to get pregnant again and again. They are never allowed to root in the cool mud or lounge in a lovely pond, enjoying the sun and the breeze, like Lulu loves to do. She was brought to us at just 3 months old, after being spayed to prevent her from ever getting pregnant, but also to protect her from ovarian cancer and to decrease unwanted behavior during heat cycles (which come on with pigs about every 21 days!). Lulu loves racing in to dinner to try to eat all the good stuff before her brother gets to the table. She is especially fond of apples and pears. She does not like shots, but then again, who does? Lulu appreciates a cold beer before her vet appointments and naps in the shade. Pigs are creatures of comfort, so it's the simple things in life that make them happy. When the ducks and geese are laying eggs, Lulu will follow us out there in the morning to get herself a treat. Usually she has to wait for us to pick them up, then we ask her to sit nicely for a treat, which she does just like a dog. Such a smartie!
