Goats are smart, funny, eager to learn, and magical. They make amazing therapy animals and have the added bonus of being sustainable. When they aren’t engaging with their human community, they love eating weeds and clearing brush around the city.
Our goats come from trusted farms including Amazing Acres, to insure that they are disease free and their temperaments are suited for engaging with people and each other. They come to us after they are weaned, usually around 3 months old, often as a group of siblings or cousins. They are nurtured and cared for by our team members, supporting them to become comfortable in multiple urban settings with a wide range of visitors and caretakers. Our team members follow a training protocol to teach the goats functional commands both verbally and with hand signals. Each goat has a distinct personality and relationship within our herd and with the humans around them. PGP offers a variety of ways that visitors of all capacities and ages can enjoy and experience this delightful connection.
