Thanks to everyone who purchased from our web store, we are proud to announce that Don’t Be Cruel sponsored Henry the Goat from for the Animals Sanctuary in the month of April and will continue to do so in May.
Henry was a neglected pet. An elderly couple had gotten Henry to keep as a pet in their backyard. After feeling that he was a bit lonely by himself, they got him a companion named Pippin (who was also living at for the Animals sanctuary but unfortunately passed away earlier this year) and they were immediately inseparable. Unfortunately, the husband and primary caregiver passed away and his wife was no longer able to keep them healthy. Goats in captivity need their hooves trimmed every 4-6 weeks. Henry’s hooves were overgrown and becoming painful to walk on. He began limping and eventually crawled on his knees, as he was no longer able to bear weight on his hooves. The elderly woman contacted for the Animals sanctuary and they took Henry and his brother Pippin into the family. Henry is an extremely outgoing goat, and is often the very first farm animal to greet you when you come for a visit. He loves munching on evergreen sprigs trimmed from the trees on the sanctuary property.
The for the Animals Sanctuary is a non-profit organization dedicated to food, bedding, and medical care for farm animals and is located in Blairstown, NJ.
Debbie Kowalski, the sanctuary’s founder, has devoted most of her life to helping people and animals. She is a full-time critical care nurse, in addition to being the only live-in caregiver to the animals. She works day and night to sustain the sanctuary and provide medical care to our injured animals.
