Animal Spotlight: Butch the Goat
Butch (pictured here with Maude in the background) came to Heartland in 2011 along with Frosty, Jake, and Dakota (who has since passed away). The boys were around 8 years old when they came to us, and were surrendered because their caretaker was unable to care for them any longer. All four goats were a little shy when they arrived, but opened up as time went on. Butch was a wonderful friend to Dakota when he was sick, and was with him until the very end. Butch is a sweet boy who loves head scratches and being around people and his animal friends. Although he is an older boy, he is very active and loves to play with the younger boys and mull around the pasture all day. Butch’s favorites include: grass, hay, head-butting Michael, cuddling people, naps, and grabbing a snack from the produce table on his way outside!
Heartland Farm Sanctuary, located in Verona, Wisconsin, is the only dedicated farm animal sanctuary in Wisconsin. Heartland is a nonprofit organization who’s mission is to provide care for farm animals in need, nurture people through the human-animal bond, and foster respect and kindness toward animals and each other.
