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!

High five! Thanks to your generous support we met our $20K Kitten Care Matching Grant goal!
Kitten-season is always hard, and here in the warmth of the South, it never seems to end. We always walk a tightrope between rescuing as many cats & kittens as we can while not taking in more than our budget can afford. Your donations help us give more kittens the second chances they deserve, saving them from high kill shelters and desperate situations.
By raising $20,000 by 8/1 the cats received a total of $40,000!
We can’t say it enough – YOU are what makes us a place that gives a home to kitties who would otherwise have to go to a public kill shelter. And YOU made all the difference!
