    I just got a call from our local Animal Control. They asked me to help in a local situation where some animals are in need of new homes. This is a divorce situation and the husband will be taking these animals to auction for slaughter if homes are not found.
    Animal Control told me that they checked them out and all were in good health. This is the information I got from the wife.

    2 Mini PotBellied Pigs:
    Hamlet, 2 year old male, Black with white spot on head
    Piglet, 1 1/2 year old female, Black and White, had been abused and does not have good eyesight.
    Both are VERY FRIENDLY although Hamlet is a wanderer!

    Goats:
    Mommy, age unknown, all white, medium size. She has a female kid about a week old
    T.J., 1 year old, very friendly, all black. She has a female kid about 4 days old.
    Whitey, 1 year old, Nubian/Boar mix, medium size, brown and white. Very friendly, hand raised.
    Baby, Pygmy
    All are females.

    10 Geese, different breeds

    19 Chickens, different breeds

    Please PM me if you can give homes to any of these animals and I will give you the number of the owner. I just spoke to her and she is very appreciative.

    CM - She said they were all different breeds. To be honest I don't think she knows. All of these animals were bought from an auction so that they wouldn't be slaughtered. She is distressed that they may come to that end anyway. Her husband has given her until next weekend. She did mention that two of the chickens are especially friendly.

    JJ - We're in Jackson Twp, Northern Ocean County.

    Edited because of a "DUH" moment.

    I'll call her to see if she has any Polish, however, these birds all came from an auction so I think they may be standard breeds. I'll call her tomorrow.
    Thanks so much for your interest!

    I don't think 'rescue' is about acquiring certain breeds of your liking. It's to help the animal out.


    Are the goats still available? How much is the adoption fee, can you link me to a website or something? Thank you.

    As far as I know the goats are still available. She isn't looking for an adoption fee. She's only interested in finding them good homes before their time is up.

    SA - I just sent you a PM with her phone number. I don't think she has a website.
    Thanks so much for your interest!
