    Hello,

    New here--I'm in the process of moving from Texas overseas to Australia in the next few months and need to find a new home for my pair of geese. One is African (male) and one is Chinese (female). I've had them for about 5 years now, since they were chicks. Unfortunately, I do not have any relatives with land large enough for wildlife so I'm trying everything I can to find a place that will accept them. I'm not asking for anything in return for the geese except that they be kept together and placed in a good situation with land to roam, people to care for them and a pond to swim in.

    I'm also open to suggestions if anybody has any contact information for refuges, sanctuaries or farms in SE Texas (preferably) that can accept these geese. I've tried calling local animal shelters and tried internet searches with no luck so far. I'm attaching a photo of them below.

    Thanks!

    Ben, how far do geese tend to roam? I have a 40 acre farm with mini cows and some chickens, along with several ponds. Also, can they be shipped...I live in TN.

    Thanks,
    Connie

    Connie,

    My geese roam the entire range of my property. About the only thing that stops them is fencing and dense vegetation. I'm not sure about shipping. The farthest I've ever transported them is about 5 miles from my home to the vet.I'll be happy to keep you in mind, but I was really hoping to place them within an area here in Texas where I'd be able to transport them in my truck and not have to keep them cooped up longer than a few hours.

    Thanks for replying,
    Ben

    Where in Texas? I live in the north eastern part of Texas. Would love to care for your geese. We have chickens, and ducks right now. Thanks!
