On the afternoon of Tuesday February 25 the Animal Shelter of Schoharie Valley received a call from the Schoharie County Sheriff’s Department requesting our assistance. They had just rescued an elderly man from a snowed-in, unheated home in Summit, and three goats and a dog had been found to be living on the property without adequate shelter or sustenance. Our Shelter Manager, assisted by her husband and another Shelter employee, and aided by a friend familiar with goats, spent two hours at the scene in below-freezing temperatures and high winds rounding up the frightened animals. They are now all safe, and being cared for.
