Oh No! The cats are almost out of food! Please consider donating food ASAP to the Refuge. We need Chicken Soup for the Soul Adult wet and dry food. The Pet Pantry is running a food drive for us, for every 12 cans donated they will match with 3 extra cans! They also deliver which is very helpful! You can order by phone at 919-303-1990 or online at feedyourpets.com. Click on “Cat Products” then “Chicken Soup” and you will see the Goathouse logo on the promotion. Thank you!

This is what the Goathouse Refuge is all about! Take a look at the success stories of Gypsy and Adeline, who are recovering wonderfully thanks to the devoted care of our staff and the support of our donors.

PetPartners, Inc. is giving away $5,000 on October 7, 2016 to someone that fits the Animaltarian criteria. Starting today, vote for the Goathouse Refuge in Pet Partners’ Animaltarian of the Year contest. Your vote could help us win $5,000, which we will put towards improving and maintaining the fencing that encloses our outdoor area, ensuring that our cats can safely enjoy our 15 wooded acres.
Why should we win “animaltarian of the year”? At the Goathouse Refuge, Siglinda has spent the last 9 years creating a special sanctuary that welcomes unwanted cats, kittens, goats and dogs who have no place to go. Many have been abandoned, and others are at risk because they are not easy to adopt — they are older, easily frightened, some arrive blind, injured or neglected. Kittens arrive in the Spring, when shelters are full and they are surplus; here they are nurtured, socialized by a dedicated network of volunteers. Many of the animals need medical care and to learn to rebuild trust. At The Goathouse, the cats flourish in a communal environment with indoor and outdoor spaces in which to roam and play. Once healthy and restored, they are available for adoption. Those who are not adopted have a home for life. Siglinda is also an artist, ceramicist and sculptor. Her museum quality artworks help support the missions of the Goathouse.
Help us celebrate a woman who has created a life and place of service to animals in need!
