We’re delighted that our little Sweet Pea has at last found her forever home, and she lucked out with the perfect new family, two-legged and four-legged!
Sweet Pea, her new dad Jim, and four donkeys Jim and his wife Faye adopted from The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada
This adorable goat came to BCFS in the summer of 2017 along with MT, her duck friend.
They were enjoying life with our animals in foster care while awaiting their forever home, when MT sadly suffered life threatening injuries last month and was euthanized.
Fortunately, we heard from a lovely couple experienced in animal rescue that they were interested in adopting Sweet Pea. They’d just lost one of their goats and wanted to give Sweet Pea a good home with their female goats, donkeys, ducks, chickens, cats and dogs who were also rescued!
Sweet Pea off to her new home
Sweet Pea may find her new family of kindred spirits helps ease her loss of MT, with whom she was closely bonded. She’s already making friends with all the animals, and Jim writes, “I should note that neither Isabella or Betsy had ever shown an interest in being elevated, before she arrived.”
They have a spacious farm and barn that’s heated in winter and cooled with fans in summer, which Sweet Pea has already made her home sweet home. She has two acres of fenced pasture to graze and romp in with her new friends, too!
They write, “First pasture with everybody at 4:30″. Sweet Pea fits right in!
We’re thrilled to already have new photos and updates on Sweet Pea from her adoptive dad and mom, Jim and Faye, whom Sweet Pea has clearly taken to.
Inside the barn. “Our dogs don’t seem to be an issue for her, and the donkeys and goats think she’s swell.”
They understand rescues have a period of adjustment in a new home, are patient and say their own animals introduce new ones into the family. Sweet Pea should have a smooth transition and her happily-ever-after with such a friendly welcoming committee!
We couldn’t be happier for Sweet Pea, and are grateful to her new family for giving her the loving home she deserves. Thank you, Jim and Faye!
