Albert

Albert (goat). Arrived 19 May 2016

Adorable Albert came to us after his previous owner sadly passed away. The daughter had no room at her suburban home for Albert (who is one of the tallest goats we’ve ever seen!), but wanted to see him live out the rest of his life happy, healthy and well cared for. That’s exactly what he’ll get here at Happy Hooves, with the added bonus of 15 other caprine comrades to goat around with!

Albert initially went off his food, but visits from previous neighbours – many bringing him his favourite things to eat, have perked him up a bit. He’s still not eating quite right and we’ll keep in in isolation (with friend, Isla) for a few more weeks to make sure he is eating right before introducing him to the others.

We’re very sorry for your loss, Albert, but hope you enjoy your time with us and your new goat friends.

Isla

Isla (goat). Arrived 27 April 2016

Isla was found roaming by a municipal shire and taken to the pound where no one claimed her, so we offered her a home at Happy Hooves. We have no idea of her history, but she is very shy and retiring and seems to have taken a fancy to Shaggy in the paddock across the run.

REHOMED: Billy Boy – needs a home to call his own

**UPDATE**

We were unable to find anyone interested to take Billy in, so he has been introduced to the goat herd at Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary. This “mixed bag” collection of rescued goats have allowed Billy into the group without too much trouble – all was sorted after an hour or so of sparring. (It’s ok, nobody got hurt – this is the way of goats.) ????

Billy seems very happy and we are happy to have him, he deserves a life of friendship, love & protection. Welcome Billy!!


 

Billy was a stray goat who was found roaming Whiteman Park on a stinking hot 44deg day, he was overheated and exhausted. He was quite friendly, so the lovely folks from Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary were able to give him a rest in the picnic area where he enjoyed brunch and rehydration. He was then transferred to Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary where he has been living during his recovery from the ordeal, and to ensure his ongoing health for the future.

Billy has now been vaccinated, drenched (wormed) and desexed and is ready to start looking for a truly wonderful home to move to. He’s a funny chap – and he’s still coming down from his Billy Goat hormones (i.e. friskiness), but we think he’ll settle right down soon. He is really great with other goats, seems gentle and protective of them so his ideal home would be to join a small herd of loved companion goats. He is located in Perth Western Australia and available for local adoption only.

Adoption Fee: $75

We hope you can help us to help this lovely boy find a home .. please fill in the Expression of Interest form below if you would like to know more, or offer to adopt.

 

Please fill in our EXPRESSION OF INTEREST form if you would like to ask questions or offer to adopt.

Animal Actionist promotes non breeding of all rescued animals, particularly in the interest of breaking the cycle of unwanted farm animals (most of them males,) that find themselves with little time to find a new home and end up in danger of slaughter. All farm animals adopted via Animal Actionist are intended as family pets, and therefore the same rules that apply for non breeding of cats and dogs, applies to these animals too. If you apply to adopt you thereby agree and are bound to not use this animal for breeding.

All suitable applications are forwarded to the current custodian for consideration, and you will be contacted as soon as possible to discuss your offer further. Please understand that it may take a few days for us to respond to you depending on the amount of applications received, and it is never a case of first come, first served with animal adoptions, as we have to do our best to locate the absolute best homes for the animals. If you have any problems or further queries, please contact Animal Actionist direct via the “contact us” link. Thank you so much for caring for animals.

Billy. Arrived: 9 February 2016

Found roaming Whiteman Park, Billy was very hot and exhausted when finally caught. He was quite friendly, so the lovely folks from Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary were able to give him a rest in the picnic area where he enjoyed brunch and rehydration before the 44C drive to Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary where he was drenched and vaccinated.

Billy is an entire goat so we will hold him here for a while whilst he builds immunity after his vaccination to ensure it is safe to surgically castrate him. Once he has been through all of that, we will reassess his situation and formulate a long term plan for him.

He smells disGUSTing (have you ever smelt a billy goat???) and is very rambunctious, but he gives us a lot of laughs; no doubt he will settle down into being a much calmer and less smelly boy once the hormones are dealt with (*snip snip*).

Rachael

Rachael (goat). Arrived 20 December 2015

Rachael was found wandering a southern suburbs park with no collar and no tags, and surrendered to us by the kind woman who found her. She appeared healthy and well-fed, has been wormed and vaccinated and now has two new BFFs in Indie and Tumbles, who she LOVES playing with – so good to see her having some fun as she was very timid and shy when she first arrived.

Would you like to help us to take care of Rachael?  One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.

Liam and Zayn

Liam and Zayn (goats). Arrived 29 January 2016

Liam and Zayn are brothers who found themselves in the care of Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary after Zayn had his leg broken by (we think) a horse, on his previous owner’s property in Toodyay. She was unable to afford the vet bill for the treatment, so contacted us to see if we could help.

We took them both on and arranged immediate veterinary treatment for what turned out to be a reasonably straightforward break to his right front leg (radius and ulna) fixed with a simple  but full-length cast – at first it was feared the blow had shattered his shoulder and he would have to have been euthanised.

Liam was very happy to see his brother back in the yard with him after their separation and they are enjoying the shade, water and abundant feed!

We will try to find a suitable home for them to move onto together after Zayn has fully recovered, but as is always the case, if nothing can be found, they will always have a forever home here with us at HHFS!

Tumbles

Tumbles  (goat). Arrived 23 November 2015

Tumbles was found wandering the eastern suburbs and taken in by the municipal pound. A suitable home was unable to be found for her, so we took her in at Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary – she was the first female goat to join our list of goat residents: Rupert, Thurman, Gary Sweet, Shaggy, Beau & Jangles and Pogo! Being so small and tame, she was kept separate from the big boofy blokes and on her lonesome (with the dogs and the humans) until coincidentally, the next two goats we took in turned out to be females also – Indie and Rachael.

They have all become BFFs after headbutting it out for domination, which appears to have been won by Tumbles, despite her diminutive size!
