Adopt a Fun-Loving Goat for the Holidays

Fred loves people and makes a great family pet.

It isn’t often that a pet goat comes up for adoption, but the family that loved him had to give up 2-year-old Fred because he was too much of an escape artist.

He is a friendly guy although a little shy at first. He does well with other pets and children and loves to follow people around. He was housed in the yard of his old home and would sleep on the porch.

Fred will need fresh water, hay and alfalfa available to him at all times. He enjoys treats like animal crackers, raisins and carrots, because eating is one of his favorite pastimes.

He will need to have a shelter available. It doesn't have to be anything big or elaborate, but it needs to keep out wetness and cold winds. Most goats hate to get wet. And good fencing is a must. You don’t want your goat munching on the flowers in your neighbor’s yard do you?

Goats love to climb and play, and if you provide Fred with something to climb on, he can furnish you with hours of entertainment.

His former family learned that goats are herd animals and are miserable without company. He would not thrive as a solitary pet. Two goats aren’t much more expensive than one to care for and are much happier and easier going. A pair or more will make a good addition to the right family.

Hate to mow? Have a good amount of property? Then Fred is the goat for you.

To choose Fred, request ID A4511544. The Agoura Hills Animal Shelter is at 29525 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills. Occasionally pets have already been adopted. To check availability, call 818-991-0071 or visit the website.

A "fun-loving" goat? Just give me a normal goat, please.

Goats need the company of other goats although my first goat who we still have was a solitary goat spending all his time day and night with our German Sheppard for nine months (his herd) until we got him a girlfriend. I don't think Fred will break out from his pen with the right girl getting his attention.
