Four cute kids have stolen the hearts of Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) rehoming staff as they look to find their new homes. The six week old goats are named Poker, Marbles, Puzzle and Jenga, and you can bet that they are lapping up all the attention.
“They are just gorgeous, friendly little creatures who love a pat, and especially a milk bottle,” AWLQ Beenleigh Rehoming Supervisor Helen Andrews said.
The two females and males were strays found on the Gold Coast a couple of weeks ago.
Puzzle, one of the males, had to have intensive medical treatment after a paralysis tick was found on the back of his neck. It was an opportunity for him to endear himself with the AWLQ Gold Coast Vet Clinic team.
“He spent time in the recovery pens where we normally have our dog or cat patients in the middle of the ICU,” AWLQ Community Vet Clinic Director Andres Townsend said. “Puzzle was a model patient and is now on the road to recovery. We miss him already.”
Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) is well known for its lifesaving work, rehoming stray and abandoned dogs and cats in South East Queensland since 1959. In that time it has rehomed more than 115,000 animals. This year it hopes to rehome a record ten thousand animals, including guinea pigs, rats, pigs, horses and, of course, goats.
The kids have adapted well to the tender loving care of the Beenleigh Rehoming Centre.
“We just love having them around but they need a permanent home now,” Ms Andrews said.
The kids would be best suited to a home that is goat savvy and we would love them to either go in pairs to their new home, or ideally altogether.
“Goats are such social animals, they love a little bit of room to wander, strangely enough don’t like getting wet and prefer to sleep off the ground,” Mrs Andrews said.
