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!
