Looking to fill a few volunteer hours? The team at Paradox Farms in Moore Country, North Carolina is looking for volunteers to cuddle with their baby goats.
The baby goats born at Paradox Farms certainly hit the jackpot. Whereas most baby goats are separated from their mothers at birth and bottle-raised before being shipped off to other farms, the kids at Paradox Farms are raised with their mothers until they are ready to be adopted as a family pet.
Since these goats are destined to be four-legged additions to families, it's important that they are properly socialized. While being with their mother does help with adjustment, they also need to be comfortable around humans. That's where volunteers come in.
For a couple of hours a day, volunteers are invited to spend time interacting with and cuddling the farm's baby goats. By doing this, they form positive relationships with humans making them an even better family pet.
This volunteering isn't just beneficial for the goats, however. Many volunteers say that the time spent with the kids is therapeutic and calming.
Paradox Farms welcomes volunteers any afternoon from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. They are located at 449 Hickory Creek Lane in West End, North Carolina and can be reached by email at [email protected]
If you're interested in volunteering, don't wait! We have a feeling that there will be no shortage of volunteers willing to give up their time to cuddle a few baby goats.
