Gilbert was rescued in 2001 after he was left outside in the blazing heat hogtied. In the backyard, his purchasers were preparing to slaughter and eat him. Concerned neighbors contacted animal control, who arrived promptly and confiscated the poor goat. We welcomed the goat to the sanctuary, naming him Gilbert. Even after all these years, Gilbert is still pretty shy around people, though he'll sometimes let us massage his back. We respect that.
