Max the Goat has had a rough life. When he came down with deer worm at his former home, his then-owner let the disease progress to the point where the little guy could only get around by dragging himself by his front knees. Now, thankfully, he’s in the (tender loving) care of animal lover Jody Morris, who’s been working tirelessly to get him a clean bill of health and rehab him.
Unfortunately, Max’s story might not have a happy ending. “I’m not quite sure how long he has,” Jody admits to Moment of Awesome (in our first-ever interview). But she is certainly going to do her darnedest to give his story at least a happy middle. “We are just making sure this is his best summer ever.”
To that end, Jody has begun selling eye-catching Max T-shirts to help offset the costs of his care. “That idea came from one of my friends on Facebook,” she explains. “She thought raising a little bit of extra money for Max would help with his medical expenses and also help with the bucket list for him — such as, you know, buying his favorite treats, taking him places, that type of stuff.”
If you would like to help out — and get a stylish T-shirt with Max’s adorable face on it to boot — all you have to do is click HERE and place an order.
And if the thought of Max not making it seems more a Moment of Sadness than a Moment of Awesome… well, we get it. It bums us out, too. May we suggest that you cheer yourself up by taking a look at the way Jody and her four-legged friends celebrate the holidays?
What? Doesn’t everybody dress up like a cross between Lady Gaga and a Christmas tree for the amusement of their goats?
