Josie & Gus in Need of a New Home

Location: Herron

In 2016, Josie and her baby boy Gus were dumped at a beach . Mandurah Wildlife Rescue were notified about the abandoned goats and they were taken in one of the organisation’s volunteers. Both mother and kid were very underweight, and Gus who was only 4-6 weeks old at the time had to be hand fed while his mother was treated for mastitis. Gus was so week he couldn’t stand on his own, and his carer was concerned that he wouldn’t survive. Thankfully he made it through this hard time, and is now a healthy young goat.

Josie and Gus are very affectionate. Gussy loves his head scratched between his horns and Josie loves a shoulder massage. They both love to go on walks with their carer and the resident dogs.

“Every morning Gus waits for me to have my coffee so he can put his head on my lap for a scratch – they are not normal farm yard goats. They roam free and graze the property all day and then wait for their rice cracker, nuts and/or fav veggies and fruit snack to go up to their pen for the night. Josie then comes and nudges me affectionately every morning when I let them out – I know this means thanks and then gallops off to enjoy her day.”

Josie was clearly mistreated by her original owners as she is scared or brooms and wouldn’t allow anyone to touch her head. But with time and lots of TLC she has learnt to trust again, coming to her carer for head and shoulder rubs.

Gus also has his own Facebook page Gus in the Wild West!

Unfortunately their carer needs to sell her property, and will no longer be in a position to provide a home for these gorgeous goats and we are looking for a loving new home for them. Josie and Gus will be vaccinated and wormed before handover to their new family. An adoption fee of $100 applies.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST

NAME:                         Josie and Gus

AGE:                            approx. 4yrs; nearly 2 years

SEX:                             Female; male

BREED:                       Nubian

WORMED:                   Yes

DE-SEXED:                 Gus is de-sexed

VACCINATED:            Yes

TEMPERAMENT:        Friendly and sociable, like to be around humans.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  Josie and Gus would like to be adopted together. Gus needs interaction with other goats, as his mum Josie cops the brunt of his bunting. A home where there are some other goats would be idea.  Goats require adequate fencing and enclosures. You will need shire approval and a Department of Agriculture registration (which is easy to get).

ADOPTION FEE:         $100

Rehomed! Toodyay Trio Find a New Home

Panda, her daughter Possum, and little Nugget are currently in foster care and looking for a loving home. Panda is about 3 years old and her daughter Possum is 4-5 months old, as is young Nugget.

Panda has black patches around both eyes, hence the name Panda. Caramel-coloured Nugget is a Boar cross miniature, whilst Panda and her daughter Possum are Alpine cross miniatures.

The goats are quite timid around humans due to previous neglect, but should warm to a loving owner over time.

All three will be wormed and vaccinated before handover to their new family/s, and an adoption fee of $50 each applies (less if they are adopted as a pair, or threesome). We really would prefer mother and daughter (Panda & Possum) to be homed together.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME:               Panda, Possum & Nugget

AGE:                  Panda – 3 years | Possum – 4/5 months | Nugget – 4/5 months

SEX:                  Panda & Possum – female | Nugget – male

BREED:             Panda & Possum – Alpine x miniatures | Nugget – Boar cross miniature

WORMED:         Yes

DESEXED:         Nugget – castrated | Panda & Possum – not de-sexed

VACCINATED:  Yes

TEMPERAMENT:  Timid, unsure of humans.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  The goats will require adequate fencing and enclosures. You will need shire approval and a Department of Agriculture registration (which is easy to get).

ADOPTION FEE: $50 ea or less if rehomed as a pair or all together.

Rehomed! Queen G and Gigi

4th May 2017

Update : Queen G and Gigi have been offered a new home with a lovely family.

Gorgeous Oliver pig and his two goat friends Gigi and Queen G have found themselves looking for a new home. The owners of these much loved pets are struggling with health issues within the family, and due to these unforseen circumstances, they are unable to provide for the delightful trio long term.

Oliver is available to adopt on his own, but it is preferable that the two goats are adopted together. Gigi was a rescue goat and was hand raised by her current owners. Queen G was purchased as a companion for Gigi, so the pair are quite bonded.

Oliver is incredibly friendly, he loves human interaction and wants to be around humans all the time. Gigi is also very friendly and loves human company, whereas Queen G can be rather skittish when meeting new people. However, she comes around quickly when she sees yummy treats!

All three animals will be wormed and vaccinated before handover to their new family/s and an adoption fee of $50 each applies.

QUICK REFERENCE LIST:

NAME:          Oliver (pig), Gigi and Queen G (goats)

AGE:             Oliver – 2.5 years, Gigi and Queen G – 1 year

LOCATION:  Bejoording, WA

BREED:        Pig and Goats

WEIGHT:      Oliver – approx. 100kg

HEIGHT:       Goats – 80 to 90cm (at the head)

WORMED:    Yes

DESEXED:    Oliver is castrated

VACCINATED: Yes

TEMPERAMENT:  Oliver and Gigi are very friendly and sociable, Queen G is a little shy at first but will eventually warm to new people.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  Oliver would be best suited to a home where he will have lots of human interaction or piggy companionship.  Gigi and Queen G need to be homed together. Bear in mind both species require particular fencing and enclosures. You will need shire approval and a Department of Agriculture registration (which is easy to get).

Lani

Lani (goat) Arrived 11 August 2016

Lani was impounded by a municipal council after being surrendered by her owner, who was having trouble containing her on his Perth Hills property, and after complaints from neighbours. The Shire contacted us to see if we could take her, and so she joins our trip of 19 other goats. She was about four months old when she came to us and is initially hanging out with Mimi, Tumbles and Isla the other small females, and Zayn who is still a bit slow from his previous leg injury. They may all move up together with the bigger goats when they grow… if they grow.

 

 

 

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

Billy McLeod

Billy McLeod (goat) Arrived 8 June 2016

Billy arrived at Happy Hooves with Rosemary and Jackie Jackie – we call him by his full name, as we already have one Billy here. They were surrendered by their previous owner because she had to move and start a new job and sadly couldn’t take them with her. This is what she had to say about Billy:

“Billy is a castrated male who came into my life as a rescue – he had been dumped in the wild to fend for himself after being a pet for years. He (and 2 other goats) ended up in the pound and I saved him from there before they put him down. I really had to fight to get him and very sadly, was not able to acquire the other two so they didn’t make it. Billy is a very very friendly boy who loves his cuddles and is always rubbing his head up on you. He just loves his affection!

He can come across a little boisterous with his forceful desire to rub up against you but he has a beautiful nature and means you no harm. He always comes to his name, especially if you have food. Since Billy arrived, he has claimed top position (over Patsy) and it only took him one day to do it. This wasn’t a bad thing as Patsy was too bossy with the others but now that Billy is on the scene, she has calmed down a little, which is nice for everyone. Billy is good with the other animals, he’s not afraid to let the dogs know if they get in his space too much by feinting a head-swing at them. (he rarely actually connects). Billy is great with adults and children but you do need to take care with him as he forgets he has horns so when he displays his affection by rubbing his head on you, it can get a little rough, but he is harmless. Billy has a slight funny walk for reasons unknown, perhaps due to his age, otherwise he is in great health. Billy doesn’t jump high due to his leg issue so he is not one to try and escape or jump on top of things. He is a really beautiful boy who deserves a safe and loving forever home.”

Billy is six years old – loves his food and always has to be in to eat first – super affectionate – doesn’t realise he has horns – loves being the boss of the goats – is the mediator and keeps the herd peaceful – loves to ride in the car with the other goats and dogs, though gets mildly jealous that the dogs get to ride up front. He has the most adorable nature and his favourite activity is cuddles and head rubs.

These three join our trip of 14 other goats! When we first opened the sanctuary here in Gidgegannup, we had just two: Rupert and Thurman.

Rosemary

Rosemary (goat) Arrived 8 June 2016

Rosemary arrived at Happy Hooves with Jackie Jackie and Billy McLeod. They were surrendered by their previous owner because she had to move and start a new job and sadly couldn’t take them with her. This is what she had to say about Rosemary:

“Rosemary is a female Saanen Goat (we’re not sure about that – lacks features of Saanen goats) who came into my life at around 5 months old as a friend for Patsy with her brother Nugget.  They were happy and full of life but unfortunately the beautiful affectionate Nugget passed away suddenly from bloat. Sadly, Rosemary took Nuggets passing badly as they had been inseparable, she mourned deeply and didn’t come near me for weeks as I think maybe she thought I had hurt Nugget and was somehow responsible for his death. Her whole personality changed, she withdrew from everyone, becoming cautious and quiet – it was so sad to see.  Over time she is slowly finding her confidence again but she still has a way to go with this. She has made friends with Patsy and follows her around everywhere, even though Patsy bosses her around they have a respectful and essential relationship. She is a beautiful girl who is yet to show her full personality due to her grief, she will need a loving and gentle home to help her to on her journey to heal her broken heart.”

She is 3-4 years old – comes to her name – gentle and has never used her horns on people – good with dogs and chickens – quiet and waits her turn at feed time – has the most beautiful nature – not an escape artist – her favourite thing to do is to hang out with her goat friends and go to the dog park in the car.”

Rosemary, Jackie Jackie and Billy McLeod  join our trip of 14 other goats! When we first opened the sanctuary here in Gidgegannup, we had two: Rupert and Thurman.

Jackie Jackie

Jackie Jackie (goat) Arrived 8 June 2016

Jackie arrived at Happy Hooves with Rosemary and Billy McLeod. They were surrendered by their previous owner because she had to move and start a new job and sadly couldn’t take them with her. This is what she had to say about Jackie:

“Jackie was originally found with his deceased mum on side of the road – he was still attached to his mums umbilical chord. He was hand raised and when I got him at 4 months Jackie would hang out with my dogs as he was too young to be with the older, bossier goats. Jackie loved hanging out with the dogs they were best mates and he would join in and come inside to lay with them on the dog beds. He is very friendly and comes to his name, you can approach him at any time. He is great with other animals as he used to ride in the car (along with the dogs and other goats) for trips to the dog park. Once Billy arrived Jackie and he become the best of friends, which made Jackie very happy as he now had a goat mate that didn’t boss him around and protected him from the girls. Jackie was de-horned when he was young (sadly) but they are growing back now. He has one horn that now grows into his head and needs to be regularly trimmed to avoid injury. Jackie is a beautiful boy who is very tame and loves his goat family.”

Jackie Jackie, Billy McLeod and Rosemary join our trip of 14 other goats! When we first opened the sanctuary here in Gidgegannup, we had two: Rupert and Thurman.
