When a family found out that one of their goats, LaBelle, who they describe as "the sweetest thing ever!", tested positive for CAE - an incurable viral disease that is contagious to other goats - they tried separating her from the herd. But LaBelle cried all day and night wanting to be with her companions. A vet suggested culling her but they would not even consider doing that to LaBelle. They started reaching out to rescues to find a safe place for her. CAPE was contacted and we knew that she would be the perfect companion for Lorrie, a sweet goat with CAE already living at the sanctuary.
Last year we built Lorrie her own enclosure with a separated piece of pasture and she has settled in very nicely to her routine. We are thrilled that she will now have another goat companion. Although Howard the pig and Bogart the turkey may be a little disappointed as they have been excellent company to Lorrie.
Labelle will be quarantined in a separate stall when she arrives, given a full health check by CAPE’s trusted vet, and then introduced to Lorrie. We’re crossing our fingers that these two sweet goats become the best of friends!

Since 1992 thousands of animals have been rescued, cared for, adopted into loving homes, and given sanctuary by CAPE. I cannot overstate my great appreciation for your generous and continued support over all these years. You are part of the team that provides the vital assistance which enables us to save so many lives. And for this I thank you!
Our end of year goal has been to raise $50,000 to help with our ongoing veterinary care, animal care, feed and supplies. As this letter goes to print, we still need to raise $18,000. Your donation today will help us meet that goal.
I am happy to tell you that CAPE has continued to advocate, rescue and care for animals despite the restrictions of working during a pandemic. Our outreach and social media platforms are interactive and unique and this year we have had a huge surge in the number of people who engage with us to learn more about what they can do to help animals. The CAPE Animal Sanctuary is bustling and our dog rescue programs continue to focus on saving dogs who have special needs. CAPE currently has 49 animals in our care – many who otherwise would have faced a lifetime of homelessness, neglect, or death. Your generous donations made saving their lives possible!
As this very intense and difficult year comes to a close, we at CAPE look forward to 2021 with some new and innovative plans to help animals in the upcoming year. So many people have stepped up to foster animals, to give generously, and to spread the message of CAPE’s mission - Every animal deserves to live a full life free from suffering.
I want to wish you all a very happy, healthy New Year and to join with you in the vision and the goal of making our world a compassionate and safe place for all living beings.
With much warmth and gratitude,
JP Novic, Executive Director
