Two baby goats born at Lollypop after parents brought in from hoarders
Fairport, N.Y. (WHAM) - Two baby goats were born this week at Lollypop Farm.
Harvey and Noel were born Wednesday at the main campus in Fairport. The two nannies, Katrina and Darcy, were originally brought to Lollypop Farm in July after 27 goats, along with three horses and a llama, were brought in from a central New York home.
The Albany County Sheriff’s Office and the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society had to ask for help from humane societies in the upstate New York area after more than 120 animals found living in deplorable conditions in Westerlo.
“These types of cruelty cases are difficult for everyone involved, especially when the moms had been neglected so badly,” says Farm and Safety Manager Joanna Dychton. “But because of everyone’s combined efforts, these babies will have shelter, veterinary services, and the care they need for a fresh start.”
Of the 30 animals brought to Lollypop Farm, 13 have already found new homes. The nannies and kids will need care and will not be made available for adoption for a couple of months.
Anyone interested in adopting the goats must be zoned for farm animals and must currently own a goat or adoption multiple goats. Applications can be filled out and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
