About Our Organization
Shepherd’s Rest Goat and Sheep Rescue exists to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide sanctuary for goats and sheep in need, to educate the public about goats and sheep as therapy animals, to provide qualified animal assisted therapy and to train others to provide qualified animal assisted therapy with sheep and goats adopted through our program.
Shepherd's Rest Goat and Sheep rescue is the only rescue of it's type in the Midwest. In addition to Nebraska, we have taken in goats and sheep from Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas.
Because of Covid 19, the need for rescue is great. Due to job loss, people are unable to care for their goats and sheep. Without us, the only option is a sales barn, and the boys fate is most likely slaughter. In the past 6 months, we have taken in 10 boys alone.
Additionally, because of long term health consequences of early wethering (neutering), boys remain at Shepherd's Rest until they are at least 12 months old, at which time they are wethered and placed for adoption. The cost of wethering alone is $100 per goat, and is done under anesthesia in the most comfortable way possible.
Shepherd's Rest also provides sanctuary for goats that cannot be kept either short term, or long term by their owners. Owners assist with taking care of all the goats, in exchange for room and board. We currently have 62 goats on premises. They will consume 500 bales of hay, at a cost of $3000 this winter and $3720 in goat feed and beet pulp.
Please help us to help those with no voice, and no other safe haven.
