Meet Patches. He's a looker right? This guy is missing his whole back hoof. When he was just a week old, his momma accidentally stepped on him. This resulted in his hoof being so severely damaged that it completely fell off. His human took care of his injury under the supervision of a veterinarian. Daily bandages and medication to prevent infection.

Unfortunately, she could no longer give him the care that he needed and reached out to us.

Upon his arrival, we continued the daily care needed for his foot. Upon evaluation from UGA it was determined that he needed a full leg amputation due to the infected bone. Patches went in for surgery and has since made a full recovery! He is our 'tri-pod" goat and gets around beautifully on 3 legs. One of our little miracles here at the Sanctuary.
