Ruby-Tuesday was born on the 27th August, 2019 at Little Oak Sanctuary - yes, on a Tuesday!
Her young Mum, Sandy arrived at Little Oak Sanctuary on 18 April 2019. Sandy and 5 other goats (including her Mum) were impounded in a Sydney animal holding facility after being picked up as strays. Once at the animal holding facility, these animals are typically put up for auction and purchased for immediate slaughter, fortunately for this gang, Little Oak was able to provide them with sanctuary and they were spared just in time for Easter, 2019. Whilst we were unaware Sandy was pregnant when she arrived, her swelling udder over the coming months revealed she was in fact carrying kids, although as we did not have a record of her history prior to being impounded, we could not pinpoint when she would be due to deliver them.
Sandy delivered her single kid, Ruby-Tuesday unassisted, and is proving to be a loving and protective Mum.
Ruby-Tuesday was born a large, strong but shy girl. Born into Sanctuary, she will know nothing but kindness.
You can sponsor Ruby-T and her friends on a one off or ongoing basis and help us continue to help goats like her and her Mum, below.
Sponsor a Goat
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.
