They Thought They Were Rescuing 27 Goats. They Made The Cutest Mistake Ever!
The Catskill Animal Sanctuary is dedicated to rescuing animals from nightmarish situations. Many of their animals come from hoarding situations, but some come from more sinister backgrounds.
When the local SPCA raided an illegal slaughter house, seizing over 100 animals, they knew they needed help finding safety for them. Catskills took in a group of goats from raid. They were thin, scared, and in need of some major TLC.
The rescuers had no idea that quite a few of them were actually pregnant! What’s better than a baby goat surprise? In my book, nothing! Which baby is your favorite?
All animals deserve compassionate care, but is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.
