Because of New Moon Farm Goat Rescue, I now have Mr. Big, Brother, Sweetness, Voodoo, Fiona and Pickles. I found New Moon Farm Goat Rescue in 2008. It is an exceptional example of a woman's love for animals and her dedicated, long-term efforts to create both a goat haven and goat-loving families. Dogs, cats and horses are higher profile rescues, but once you fall in love with a goat they go to the top with the others! Ellen has an outside job, which carries much of the burden of rescue support. She has developed a cadre of volunteers -- of which I have been one -- to help with everything from cleaning pens to trimming hooves. There is such a positive energy when a group of people comes together to perform physical, productive and satisfying work. With the beneficiaries all around you. What started with a small barn, pasture and some goat pens and temporary shelters is now a large barn and numerous permanent goat shelters with sturdy fencing and larger pens. Ellen's efforts, personal, fund-raising and volunteer, have created a professional and successful goat rescue. As of the first of July, she has taken in 95 animals this year, and found homes for 105 (some that came in last year). There are currently 25 goats and 2 sheep looking for new families. There is currently a fund-raising effort for a new tractor, which is greatly needed, considering the growth of New Moon Farm Goat Rescue.
