If there is a perfect rescue for goats in this world, that might be Goats of Anarchy, a group in New Jersey, led by Leanne Lauricella. This woman has a big heart and a lot of love for all animals that have shelter in her house.
The Sad Story About Polly
Polly is a goat that lives in the house with Lauricella and other animals. She is very vulnerable because she is blind. That is the reason Lauricella pays a lot of attention to her and follows her every need and all her activities. She takes care about Polly like about a child because that is the only way to handle.

Why Polly Needs Lauricella So Much?
It is a very simple question why this little goat cannot live without help. Besides the fact that Polly is blind, there are many other things this goat suffers. She is neurologically unstable, and because of that, she does not eat well. The result is evident; Polly is much smaller than other goats of her age. In the end, this goat has a problem with anxiety. Because of all, she needs a protection all the time, like with this blanket on the picture.

The Real Love
When this wonderful woman who takes care about Polly can be with her, the goat is calmed down and sleeps without a problem. But, it is impossible that she spends every minute of the day with her, and this is when Polly starts to cry and call her.

New Calming Costume
Once Lauricella went shopping at Marshalls before Halloween, and she saw a duck costume. She took it for young goats, as she thought that might be a good idea. When she put the dress on Polly, she noticed a strange reaction. The goat calmed down and started to sleep.

Back to the Blanket
After this had happened, she decided to test Polly and put her in the blanket again. Well, this worked only at the time when somebody was beside her. The question was how this simple costume did an amazing thing so fast. It looked like the old blanket was not a good protection like this new suit of a duck.

The Signs on the Wall
If you look better on the walls of this house where animals enjoy the safety, you will notice suck marks. This is one bad habit that Polly has because somehow she has very unusual behaviour and all the time she is licking the walls when she is near them. In this new costume, we know she will stop doing that.

Sometimes, when Leanne has to go and do some shopping, she cannot leave helpless Polly alone at home. She found a new pattern to make this shopping satisfactory and without problems. She just put a duck costume on the goat, bring it in the shopping cart, and everything is solved. No voices around, the animal is sleeping all the time.

Flowers on the Head
It is hard to say what the magic of duck costume is. They tried to put some other things on her head, like flowers. This had a similar effect, but not even close like when she is caring the yellow suit.

The Big Cat on the Goat
Even when Polly has a costume of a big cat, the effect is not the same. Yes, she feels a bit better than when there is nothing around. But, she still loves her new duck costume like something the most precious in this world.

The New Friend
There is a fear what will happen in a time when this costume cannot fit on her body after some time? How will she calm? It looks Pocket will be a new therapy goat. This small goat came lately to the house. He was also rescued, and Lauricella put him on Polly’s back. She saw the similar effect like when Polly has a duck costume on her. Will this friendship make her feel safe without the suit?

Love Is a Cure
Love is always right. Either it is a love between partners, or is a love between friends, this is the most powerful weapon this world has. We can only hope that Polly will get better while hanging around with Pocket. At least, maybe she will get over her anxiety. The one is sure; although she is blind, she has the best surroundings in the world because she is a part of a lovely family.
