Facility workers have given the goat the name Charlie. Over the last few days, Charlie has been recovering from a bout of diarrhea.

Veterinarians say Charlie's energy also started to decline so they put him on the IV.


Right now Charlie is spending a lot of time with the student doctors, and his favorite stuffed animal.

Charlie still has a long road to recovery and is looking for donations to cover his medical expenses. Click here to make a donation to Charlie and the Love Creek Sanctuary.
