Knuckles the Goat
We rescued Knuckles from a goat farmer who said that she had become a burden because she had been attacked by a donkey and couldn't walk. UGA Vet School removed a lesion from her spine and she is able to walk again. It was suggested she would never walk again, so her recovery has been nothing but miraculous! She is now home and still moving around like a champ! Please donate to help continue her rehab and recovery!
Follow @sweetolivefarm on Instagram to see her recovery in the works!
Every donation helps!
We will be taking a break during the cooler weather, but are accepting requests for hosting private yoga groups.
Our animals go through a huge amount of food and hay. Click here to help donate towards some specific needs.
What’s in a name? Sweet Olive Farm is named for one of our many rescued dogs from over the last 10 years, and this dog’s name is Olive! She is not so sweet, but that is part of the fun! Our journey with animal rescue began with dogs.
We lived in the midtown Atlanta neighborhood of Ansley Park which was a great home for the dogs, but the neighbors weren’t too crazy about the ever increasing number of canines. An officer from Fulton County Animal Control came to grant us a special permit to house up to 10 dogs and before she left, Melissa, the officer, asked, “Don’t y’all want a pot bellied pig?” The rest is history!
We rented the property and house that is now Sweet Olive Farm in June of 2010.
Sweet Olive Farm Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves as a sanctuary for a wide variety of animals! A magical farmhouse and a hundred year old barn amid rolling pastures set the scene for happily ever after for our peaceable kingdom.
