Goathouse News

Participant of 2021 Clear The Shelters Campaign

The Goathouse appreciates all of your support more than ever as we continue to recover through the pandemic and kitten season. All of the precious little kitttens we were able to save and take in a few months ago are now old enough to get spayed and neutered and complete their vetting, which is a big expense!
Our designated page link below will stay active through November to allow people to donate.

To Donate click this link:  Goathouse Refuge in Pittsboro, NC | Clear The Shelters

Please Help With Pinnochio and Julio

Help needed for Pinnochio and Julio!

The Refuge is a place where no cat will be refused due to age, illness or disposition. Even cats that are “unadoptable” can live in comfort, with the care, attention and love they deserve. The sanctuary also accepts FIV+ cats and is devoted to their care like any of the other residents and no cat will be euthanized unless it is suffering and there is no hope of recovery. Our goal is to find every cat their own home but they can live at the refuge their entire life if that goal is not met.

Pinnochio has been undergoing treatment for cancer to give him a good quality of life. His vet bills have understandably added up though. We have set up a Giving Grid fundraiser to help with the bills for Pinnochio and Julio as well. Can you help us?


The Kitties Need a New Generator!

Generac Guardian 18000-Watt (LP)/17000-Watt (NG) Standby Generator with Automatic Transfer Switch in the Home Standby Generators department at Lowes.comThe Goathouse Refuge is an amazing place and part of the charm is it’s remote location. Unfortunately, being off the beaten path has it’s draw backs. We are on a well for our water so if the power goes out, so does our well pump! We also lose our heat or air conditioning and we have hundreds of cats and kittens that rely on us to provide them with fresh water and a comfortable living space. We received an offer for an awesome Guardian 22 KW Home Back Up Generator! We need to raise the funds to purchase the unit and have it installed. Please help us reach our goal! The price is good until the end of July so please donate ASAP and help our cat refuge stay comfortable when the power goes out! Thank you!
