The goats, now housed at the MSPCA-Nevins Farm, are undergoing treatment for Coccidia, a highly contagious intestinal bacteria, as well as round, whip and tape worms. Many of the female goats are pregnant, according to the MSPCA.

The MSPCA is now looking for people to adopt the goats and will consider adopters who have other farm animals on their property or those willing to take home at least two of the goats.
