CRY ALERT! Mr. G and Jellybean

If you don’t cry over this vid you’re a cold hearted snake! Here’s the story of Mr. G and Jellybean;

On a warm May day, a 10-yr old goat named Mr. G arrived to Animal Place’s Rescue Ranch adoption center. For a decade he lived with a burro on the property of a woman who could barely care for herself, let alone the dozens of dogs she hoarded and three barnyard animals.

Animal Place was one of two sanctuaries offering to help the goat and burro when they were confiscated…but we could only take in the goat, and the other sanctuary could only take the burro. The two were separated in order to save their lives. We didn’t know the depth of their bond.

Mr. G refused to eat. He spent his days lying in a corner of his stall, barely lifting his head. Staff tried every treat – molasses, sweet grain, apples, wetting down food…nothing worked.

It was time for Jellybean to come home.

It would take an additional three days but soon Mr. G and Jellybean were reunited.

When Jellybean entered Mr. G’s stall, he could not believe his eyes. In fact, he did a double-take! It was only when he smelled Jellybean’s unique scent that Mr. G realized the truth – his dearest friend had returned!

Mr. G erupted from his prone position, snorting and inhaling Jellybean’s presence. He rushed after her into their outdoor pasture. The magical moment came when Mr. G began eating from Jellybean’s bowl!
