Goatalympics: A Fundraiser for Neglected and Abandoned Goats, and a Mix and Mingle for Goat Owners

Goats aren’t Ellen Felsenthal’s favorite animal—that would be cats—but they are an awfully big part of her life. Felsenthal is the founder, director, and animal caretaker at the New Moon Farm Goat Rescue & Sanctuary, a nonprofit based in Arlington that takes in abandoned or neglected goats, nurses them back to health, and then re-homes them.
