Pygmy goat available for adoption at Peninsula Humane Society

The Peninsula Humane Society in Burlingame is looking for a home for a female pygmy goat.

“Dottie” was left at the Humane Society’s after hours receiving area on Nov. 13.

“Unfortunately we have no background details about this friendly goat,” Peninsula Humane Society spokesperson Buffy Martin Tarbox said in a statement.

“Goats are herd animals and Dottie is quite lonely without other goat friends so we are actively seeking an adopter with goats,” Tarbox said.

Goats require outdoor space with strong, secure fencing. Pygmy goats are compact and smaller than other goat breeds. They usually stand 16 to 23 inches tall and are known for their friendliness.

“Dottie loves to be petted, is charismatic and can also provide organic lawn maintenance since she loves to nibble on grass,” Tarbox said.

The adoption fee is $25. Potential adopters should call (650) 340-7022.
