Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph a special event held at WearWoof: baby goat yoga! If you haven’t heard of goat yoga, it’s exactly what it sounds like, a group fitness class combining–you guessed it–goats and yoga!
WearWoof, an upscale women’s fashion resale boutique in McCandless whose proceeds benefit animal welfare in throughout western Pennsylvania, teamed up with one of its partner rescues, Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary, for this unique private event. The rescue’s founder and director Karen brought two baby Pygmy goats, a breed of domestic miniature goats, named Gary and Lamby.
About 10 participants attended the event, led by a local certified yoga instructor. I’m not sure how much yoga-ing took place, but I do know there was a lot of goat-gawking going on. Then again, how can you not be distracted by this adorable brother-sister duo?
Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary is just one of many local organizations, rescues, and shelters supported by WearWoof. To learn more about its mission and animals, visit www.hopehavenfarm.org. Like countless other small, volunteer-based rescues in the region, it relies strongly on WearWoof’s efforts to help end pet homelessness and to provide education and resources on responsible pet ownership. WearWoof is located at 3400 McIntyre Square Drive in McCandless.
