Just when the sanctuary thought everyone was safe, this lucky boy was spotted just minutes before they were heading home from an incredible rescue. Squirt is a sweet, wild, playful little boy and is thriving in his new home with his loving foster family.
Squirt went through an amazing transformation since coming into the care of Road to Refuge. Once a frail and orphaned baby, now Squirt is a spoiled little house goat with long shaggy hair and big horns and can run freely in a field. He is having a blast playing with his brothers and sisters at the sanctuary and being bottle-fed.
“How freakin cute is this creature? Honestly, I can’t even handle it. He has such a big personality and is growing like a weed too. Him and I have bonded so much these last few weeks & I’m so glad our paths crossed. He makes me so happy!” said Road To Refuge Sanctuary.
Squirt is not only alive, but he is now thriving because of the hard work that this sanctuary does every day.
Although the start of Squirt’s life was tough, he seems incredibly happy in her new home. It is truly incredible to see how a little compassion can change the entire outlook of an animal!
Because these lambs are bred for their wool, unfortunately, unwanted lambs are either taken to auction as bottle babies or left out in the elements to die. While many people believe the wool industry to be harmless, the countless lambs left in fields or taken to auction and denied veterinary care paint a very different picture. Every lambing season, sanctuaries are overwhelmed with distressing calls about orphaned lambs; and sadly, most simply do not have the capacity.
Road To Refuge Sanctuary is a haven for neglected, abused & special needs farm animals. They are committed to removing animals from toxic and desperate situations as well as saving animals from slaughter. They run solely on donations and rely on committed monthly support to be able to save lives.
