    Full Text Summary Of The Brochure:

    Here’s The Open Sanctuary Project’s “So You Want To Rescue A Goat Brochure” text summary:

    Panel 1: “So you want to rescue a goat? There’s a lot to consider! A short intro from The Open Sanctuary Project”

    Panel 2: “A goat is not a lawnmower! While they might enjoy spending many days munching on greens, despite popular belief, providing lifelong responsible care to goats means so much more than letting them loose in a patch of tall grass! Goats are thoughtful, inquisitive individuals, some of whom can live for close to twenty years with your help! Caring for them requires compassionate commitment
    and a lot of knowledge!”

    Panel 3: “When a goat comes home: A goat first entering your home or sanctuary may be facing challenges that need to be addressed for their well-being and safety, including:

    Health issues or emergencies
    Hoof health concerns
    Internal or external parasites
    Malnutrition or overfeeding symptoms
    Complex behavioral challenges
    Dental health challenges
    Concerning herd dynamics”

    Panel 4: “Caring for life: Providing responsible lifelong care for individual goats has a lot of important elements, just like for any other companion animal. Goats need:

    Access to an experienced veterinarian
    A diet appropriate for each goat
    Planned, intentional supplementation
    An appropriate indoor and outdoor space
    Close daily observations of the herd
    Regular health evaluations from you
    Medical intervention when necessary
    Predator safety at home
    Protection from the elements
    An enriching environment and activities

    Learning all you can about the compassionate care for goats before
    they come into your life may be critically important for their health and well-being!”

    Panel 5: “We have compassionate goat care guides for you:

    Housing + Feeding: Accessible information on safe indoor and outdoor spaces for goat care, what they can and shouldn’t eat, and a whole lot of hay talk!

    Health & Safety: From their hooves to their horns, we cover a variety of goat healthcare topics, including guidance reviewed by veterinarians. How can you keep goats safe, and keep yourself safe in the process? What does “healthy” look like?

    Social Dynamics & Enrichment: Goats are herd animals, and herds have their own dynamics to consider. Plus, what can you do to make a goat’s life more interesting and fulfilling for them as an individual?”

    Panel 6: “Learn more about The Open Sanctuary Project:

    The Open Sanctuary Project is a freely accessible, always growing digital guide for any resources or information you need in order to responsibly create and successfully manage an animal sanctuary or to provide the best possible care to animals in order to help them live long, healthy, happy lives free of exploitation.
