The Ultimate Sanctuary Showdown — The 4th Annual Goat Games Are Here!

It’s time to put on your virtual game face and join the fun as Catskill Animal Sanctuary proudly presents the 4th Annual Goat Games! Happening from August 7 to 13, this nationwide hybrid fundraising competition promises an action-packed week of fun, camaraderie, and compassion.

Prepare to be swept up in the spirit of friendly competition as 17 animal sanctuaries from across the nation go “head to head” in a fundraising faceoff. Leading the charge on our behalf with grace and charm is our very own Team Captain, Hermione the goat — a natural-born leader and steadfast friend to our beloved goat herd.

In this competition, YOU have all the power to determine the winner by rallying your family and friends in support of your favorite sanctuary team. Whether you’re donating directly or creating your own social media fundraiser through platforms like Instagram and Facebook, you’ll be part of a nationwide movement to support sanctuaries doing lifesaving work, providing vital funds so that we can continue helping animals in desperate need of rescue and rehabilitation.

The Goat Games isn’t just any competition; it’s a heartwarming reminder of the crucial role sanctuaries play in providing refuge, medical care, and unconditional love to animals in need. As we come together for the Goat Games, we’re not only celebrating their spirit but also highlighting the importance of creating a kinder world for all beings.

During this six-day virtual extravaganza, all 16 sanctuaries will vie for the coveted title of “Greatest Of All Time” or “G.O.A.T.” by raising vital funds. Every dollar you contribute will directly support the operational needs of these sanctuaries, ensuring they can provide essential food, shelter, and medical care.

In a time when charitable donations have taken a hit and the costs of essential resources like hay and grain are skyrocketing, your support has never been more crucial.

And the excitement doesn’t stop there! The Goat Games will culminate in a special on-site event at our Saugerties property on August 12, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Prepare for a day of old-fashioned games, a lively children’s tent, delectable food trucks, captivating live music performances, and memorable encounters with our endearing rescued farm animals.

Don’t miss out on the chance to be part of this heartwarming, game-changing event. Mark your calendars, gear up for action, and let’s come together to ensure a brighter future for animals everywhere.
