“Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul.” ~Pythagoras


In April of 2015, the Wattersons received a call from a farm in Vermont that had a baby goat who was born earlier than planned. The baby goat had not been noticed and when she was found, had some serious damage to her ears, leg and face from severe frost bite. Donna wasn’t sure she’d continue to live. Olga was only 2 weeks old when she arrived.

Donna and her father tube-fed the little goat and then taught her to bottle feed – Olga lived with them in the house for six months while Donna cared for her father (her mother had recently passed away). Olga rode in the car with her, slept with her and sat on the couch and watched television. She wore diapers until she outgrew the largest size.

“I believe Mom sent this little goat to help Dad and I through the loneliness of her absence,” said Donna. “Olga is an angel – she got us through that tough first year.”

Becuase Olga’s feet were deformed from the frostbite, one of her legs was amputated when she was 11 months old. Although there were a lot of sleepless nights for us all, Olga made it through her surgery and led a wonderful life on her 3 legs, here at the sanctuary.

In 2017 she gave birth to her little boy Finn. Sadly, on March 9, 2018 Olga passed away.

A wonderful book was written by Peggy A. Rydberg based on Olga’s story.
