Please realize that taking in unwanted animals can be a big big problem. There is almost always a reason that animals are unwanted and often it's not a good reason! Do you want a goat that is being "displaced" because it has CAE or CL or because I can't keep it behind any fence? Do you want my rooster that attacks anything that moves?
Do you know that the upkeep on pigs and goats is just about the same as the upkeep on a cow? Actually the calves we raise are a lot less work and take a lot less in facilities than the goats or the pigs.
Just want to you have some idea of what you may be getting into, but perhaps you already do.

You might want to mention where you are located.
