Goat and Donkey Charities and Rescues for Christmas and Always

Last year I started my own holiday tradition of donating to various goat and donkey charities for Christmas, both on behalf of myself and in the names of family members.

Sure, some of my non-goatie-loving family members thought it strange, but no matter — the goats and donkeys appreciated it. I just know it. Because some even sent thank you cards!

On my links page, I always keep a list of goat and donkey charities and rescues, but I also wanted to highlight them here for those of you looking to help out some needy goats and donkeys this year:

I have donated to all of the above organizations, and all have been very appreciative, so I know they’d love to hear from you as well; if you have others to add to the list, please do so in the comments, and I’ll add them to the links page as well.

Another way you can help is by pledging to Katherine Dunn of Apifera Farm’s Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to make “Misfits of Love,” a book of short narratives, photography, and art about the rescue work she does with aging and ailing goats, donkeys, and other fine creatures. You can read more details at Katherine’s blog and on her Kickstarter page. Also, watch this video:

So please join me in helping the less fortunate among our goat and donkey friends this Christmas.

They’ll love you forever and always — goats and donkeys are like that.

    How nice of you to share this with everyone – thank you so much. And I also love the other places you have listed, especially those New Moon Goats since we have so many.

    We love you Goat Berries!
