Edgar’s Mission Animal Sanctuary in Australia is once again stopping at nothing to help an animal in need. This time they are helping two lice infested goats on their road to recovery.
When Edgar’s Mission learned that a sweet goat named Gertie was covered in lice, had swollen legs, and a horrible wound on one of his ears, the team went to go rescue him. Once there, Edgar’s Mission got a nice surprise when Bertie, another goat, decided he didn’t want to leave Gertie’s side and came along for the ride back to the sanctuary.
In this sweet video, Gertie and Bertie are safe in one of Edgar’s Mission’s transport trucks, on their way to the vet for a full checkup. They might be full of lice, but soon this goat duo will be full of love and happiness!
Bertie received an IV drip and some yummy food at the sanctuary, while he waited for his friend Gertie to return from the vet. Unfortunately, things looked grim for her, Gertie had lost a lot of teeth and one of her eyes was compromised.
Bertie was skeptical of humans at first, but the staff at Edgar’s Mission showed him that not all people are bad. Bertie is enjoying a tasty apple in this short video. We love watching his progress!
And now the moment we have all been waiting for! Gertie’s return from the vet! She still has a long way to go to a full recovery, but looks relieved to see her pal again. You can tell they really love each other!
We are thrilled Edgar’s Mission saved these two adorable goats and they are now on the road to recovery. Goats are highly intelligent and emotional animals, they also make wonderful mothers. Even after years of separation, a mother goat will remember her baby’s call, illustrating the deep bond shared between these dynamic beings. We can all learn something from the beautiful friendship Gertie and Bertie share.
