Andre Bleat-thousand

Andre was born around April 2019, and arrived at Little Oak Sanctuary on 3 July 2019.

Little Andre as found wandering the outskirts of a suburban area in Sydney.  His background was unclear, and so was his future, having been collected by the local pound.  Andre was on his own in what was quite a scary environment for a baby goat, surrounded by barking dogs and no other herd members to help him feel safe and secure.

A little luck came through for Andre when he was joined at the pound by a little lamb, Erykah.  Finally he had the security of a herd member, and the two became inseparable, but their future remained uncertain.

Fortune shone on this young duo when Little Oak Sanctuary was contacted.  We offered them sanctuary and their future is now certain - it will be filled with kindness.


You can sponsor Andre and his friends below.

Help Protect Goats

Goats are great characters! Did you know goats have accents that will change as they start to hang around with new friends?  In Australia, goats are commonly used for their meat, to produce goats milk or for fibre.  As farmed animals they are not protected by the same legislation as the dogs and cats we share our homes with, and as such they can fall victim to mistreatment.

When you sponsor a Little Oak goat you will be helping advocate for all goats. Your sponsorship will support Little Oak's essential advocacy work – sharing the stories of individual goats and the plight of their kind across the nation. 


Sponsor today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about goats through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly sponsors. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for the goats at Little Oak, and their kind across Australia.
