Goats of Anarchy



"A woman's quest to save the world one goat at a time"



If you aren't familiar with the Goats of Anarchy Instagram account, then allow me to introduce you to your latest (and greatest) Instagram obsession. Goats of Anarchy is a non profit goat sanctuary founded by Leanne Lauricella located in Northern New Jersey. Jax, Opie, Nero, Tig, and Otto are GOA's founding members, and if you're a fan of Sons of Anarchy, then you'd get the reference (it should be noted that I didn't get the reference until my sister pointed it out to me... believe it or not, there are a few tv shows out there that I haven't binge watched... yet).




I have been completely invested in Polly and Pocket and all their other goat friends ever since I found the Goats of Anarchy Instagram a few months ago. I would find myself bringing up the goats in everyday conversations and telling everyone I knew to follow GOA on Instagram because everyone needs to see videos of baby goats learning how to walk with casts on... everyone. If you're as invested in these goats as I am, then the new Goats of Anarchy book should definitely be your next Amazon purchase.


The Goats of Anarchy book gives incredible insight on Leanne's story as well as each individual goat's rescue story. I teared up a few times reading about the horrible conditions some of these goats were rescued from, but felt completely reassured after knowing how incredibly loved and cared for they all are now. I commend Leanne on everything she's done in starting a sanctuary. My end goal has always been to have my own sanctuary, but my heart breaks every time I imagine seeing any animal in any type of pain. It takes an extraordinary person to be able to quit their day job and dedicate all their time and resources to giving animals a loving home and to endure all the heartbreak that comes with caring for neglected animals, but I'm sure the outcome out ways any and all of the negatives.

With Easter coming up, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that, though baby goats, bunnies, chicks, and ducklings are all extremely adorable, they should never be a last minute Easter present. Like all babies, these incredibly cute baby animals will grow up to be full sized chickens, ducks, goats, and rabbits and they are a huge responsibility that needs serious time and research before even thinking about purchasing or adopting. Every animal deserves a loving home, and if you do find yourself in a situation where you don't feel like a suitable pet parent, always look for a sanctuary for your pet to ensure a happy and full life.

  1. AH I literally barely got to scrolling half way through this post and I picked up my phone to go on Instagram and follow Goat's Of Anarchy straight away! I then got lost in a rabbit hole of following adorable rescued animal accounts lol, I love all of your Vegan/Cruelty Free posts, it's so good to come across a fellow Vegan and someone who is passionate about cruelty free products, especially in the blogging community! Opening up a Sanctuary would be the dream, me and my step mum always say we're going to open our own donkey sanctuary one day aha.. Keep spreading the animal love girl!
