The popular Belmont Goats may need a new name because they’re getting a new address.
They have become quite the attraction in Southeast Portland but the Belmont Goats are getting booted. The land they currently roam is going to be developed. Neighbors are sad to see them go.
“I make a special point top walk past here every day to just see what they are up to. They are just so comical and interesting.”
Their forwarding address is over in the Lents neighborhood. The owners are turning to a crowd funding website to help pay for the move. So far they’ve got an overwhelming response.
“I think we did underestimate how quickly the response would come in. We gave ourselves two whole months to raise this 75 hundred dollars and two days in we are already halfway there.”
They are trying to raise $7,500 to cover vet bills, a new shelter and permits.
