Goathouse Refuge Closed to Visitors

Dear Valued Goathouse Refuge Supporters,

The Goathouse Refuge continues to be closed to all outside guests beyond essential staff due to the current COVID19 state and local ordinances & mandates and for the safety of our staff during this challenging time. As the state and county progress through the different phases and ease restrictions, we will continue to assess the situation and provide updates as they become available.

If you’re interested in adopting a Goathouse cat or kitten, please plan to take the following steps required in our process:

  1. Complete our online adoption application.
  2. Schedule a Virtual Home Check: Upon receipt of your completed adoption application, a refuge representative will contact you to schedule a virtual home check with you and any other members of your household.
  3. Schedule a Meet & Greet Appointment: Upon review & approval of your home check report, we’ll arrange for a virtual visit with the cats of interest who would be a great fit for your home.

Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!

The Pet Pantry Holding Food Donation Drive for Goathouse Kittens

It’s kitten season!

Kittens are so precious and adorable but they can also be expensive. As they need nourishment for their growing bodies, they eat….and eat a lot! We have a bunch of kittens and they are going through a lot of food.

Through The Pet Pantry you can feed a kitten at The Goathouse Refuge. With 5 different levels of sponsorship, The Pet Pantry will provide food to The Goathouse Refuge on your behalf. Will you help us feed our kittens? Just click on the link: http://ow.ly/3ZXh50zMQYR
