Pinky and Sheldon

Pinky and Sheldon

 

Pinky and Sheldon were rescued from a slaughterhouse. Sheldon was such a friendly goat the people who worked there were sure he must have been someone’s pet. Because of his outgoing personality a rescuer was able to beg the proprietor to spare his life . Pinky who was bonded to Sheldon was released as well. Pinky was so scared and traumatized when they both arrived that he spent all day and night hiding behind Sheldon. Sheldon was the only living being that Pinky trusted. They are the best of friends and with the help of Sheldon, Pinky has learned to trust humans and understands that we only want to give him love and care. He has come out of his shell and is a very friendly goat now.

Both boys had horrible respiratory infections and oarf (sore mouth disease) that is actually transmitted to humans. Most of the animals in the “food” chain are terribly sick when they go to slaughter. We are so grateful that their precious lives were saved and that they will live out the rest of their lives in sanctuary.
