Maurice the “seeing eye goat”, and his best buddy Marcia
Farm Sanctuary resident Marcia, a rescued goat from a breeding facility, was born blind and rejected from her mother. Lucky for Marcia, Farm Sanctuary’s New York location was able to rescue baby Marcia, who struggled early on due to her disability. “We knew she was going to need help,” said a spokesperson for the sanctuary, “and that’s where Maurice came in.” Both goats are lucky to be living on a pro-vegan sanctuary, and as adorable as the photos and their story are, there’s an extra satisfaction in watching them play together as a vegan. It’s a lovely reminder that this is the kind of kindness and compassion we are fighting for every day.
Maurice was a rescue as well, as all the Farm Sanctuary residents are, and when he arrived on the property at just six weeks old, he and Marcia immediately started to cry out for each other. The two were put together, and it was “love at first sight!” Maurice acts as a “seeing eye goat” of sorts for Marcia, and guides her through her day.
They’re spotted eating together, sleeping together, and playing together, all while living in peace, just like they both deserve.
