NDR-Goats need new home...anyone in Maine?
« on: April 03, 2009, 08:15:55 am »
Hi Everyone,
Well, I have some sad news- I have to re-home Jasper and Ferdinand, my 3 y/o Nigerian Dwarf goats.  We were planning to move back to our other house this spring but the housing market is so bad, we can't sell the house we're in now.  As we are in the city, the ordinance people will not allow me to bring the goats here.  The goats were boarded over the winter but I am now commuting 2 hours a day to feed and water them...  I feel so awful but it's not fair for them to be alone all the time.  I just feel so guilty and never thought I would have to re-home an animal, but can't find a way to make this work.
If anyone is in Maine or knows of anyone in Maine who might be interested in giving these guys a great home, please PM me.  I am so worried about finding good people to take them and I am not sure how to find the right family-any advice on that front would also be appreciated.  Thank you.

I am in the Portland area and the goats are up midcoast.  If you know anyone looking for goats, I am definitely willing to travel to find them the perfect home!
Thanks everyone for the sites and I will check them out.
