All new arrivals at New Moon Farm go through a quarantine protocol based on their condition. Our intake procedure includes deworming, vaccination and hoof trimming, as well as treatment for lice, mange, hoof rot or any other condition that requires attention. All male goats and sheep are neutered by a licensed veterinarian.
Once a goat is clean, healthy and checked by the vet, they move out into one of the large pastures, where they live with the herd until the right family comes along. Our adoption process begins with an application form. If a potential adopter meets our requirements, then extensive conversations, home visits and a legal contract ensure that our goats go to safe, loving homes that understand what it takes to care for these special animals.
If at any time in the future, an adopter can no longer keep an animal adopted from New Moon Farm, they come back to the rescue.
