It’s all too common we’re exposed to miraculous animal rescue stories and fail to realize the rescue is just the beginning.
That was exactly the case when a goat named Mr. G was rescued from an animal hoarder in Southern California.
According to Animal Place — the sanctuary in Grass Valley, Calif. that rescued Mr. G — the seemingly lucky goat didn’t eat or leave his stall to go outside, for six whole days. Mr. G was depressed.
Thankfully, the folks at Animal Place figured it out.
During his time with the animal hoarder, Mr. G had made a friend with a burro (a small donkey) named Jellybean. The two had become inseparable.
After recognizing this was why Mr. G was sad, Animal Place sprung into action. A volunteer made a 14-hour trip to bring Jellybean to be with Mr. G. At the time, Jellybean was living at a different sanctuary.
After watching the unbelievable reuniting of Mr. G and Jellybean, you’ll be reassured animals are, in fact, more emotionally capable than we give them credit.
Watch the sweet scene above, and then give your pets a big hug.
