Tax deductible donations and gifts of goods to help run the refuge are always welcome.

Dogs Need Help Too…

The Goathouse Refuge partners with nearby county shelters to include listings for dogs who are in need of foster and forever homes. In the last few months, we’ve taken in two of them in who were in dire need of help because they were perfectly adoptable dogs who were scheduled to be euthanized.

Even though we are primarily a cat refuge, we are always interested in the well being of animals who we can help. Cricket and Rebecca are two dogs who we could just not turn away from…

Cricket is happy and healthy now at the Goathouse Refuge

Cricket is white puppy with brown spots who is very, very sweet and gentle. He’s been neutered, dewormed, checked for heartworms (on preventative now), vaccinated, and cured from kennel cough. He is a wonderful 8 or 9 month old puppy that gets along very well with other dogs and is very smart – he is learning to “sit” when we bring him food even when he is absolutely starving…which seems to be always!

If you are interested in adopting Cricket, please email Siglinda at siglinda@earthlink.net or call at (919) 542-6815.

Rebecca is a Boxer and she’s a sweet, loving girl who will shower you with kisses and wash your face when she is not concerned about guarding her people and her territory. She gets along with other dogs but Rebecca wants to be in charge. Boxers are known as loyal, playful companions as well as excellent guard dogs. They protect their families.

Rebecca was in a high killing shelter but since she has come to the Refuge, she has gained weight and is now in good health. She is probably 1 to 1 1/2 years old. She is well trained and in desperate need of a family to call her own. If you are interested in adopting Rebecca, please email Siglinda at siglinda@earthlink.net or call at (919) 542-6815.
