In 2014, Leanne Lauricella was working as a New York City event planner. The young woman realized she wanted to do something with animals, so she quit her job and started searching for something more meaningful.
That’s when Jax and Oppie came into Leanne’s life. The two little ones were baby goats, and they changed everything for Leanne.
Many of the residents of the sanctuary are special needs goats. Some experienced frostbite as babies, while others were born physically disabled and abandoned by their mothers.
These special needs goats may have died if it wasn’t for Leanne. She and the volunteers who work with her care for the sweet goats. They feed the babies, tend to the injured, and give them all a lot of love.
And the goats have become pretty famous over the last few years! They have their own social media accounts, with tons of fans. On Instagram, the goats have over 550,000 followers — people see the goats and absolutely fall in love with them.
