About a year before The Grinning Goat opened its doors, the owner began volunteering at The Alice Sanctuary, a farmed animal sanctuary located NE of Calgary, AB. The Grinning Goat is named after Arwyn who is the first goat to become a permanent resident at The Alice Sanctuary and an ambassador for goats everywhere. TGG has also worked with TAS to rescue 4 more goats from the dairy industry in Alberta. These crazy kids now live at The Alice Sanctuary and love getting up to no good with all the other residents there.
As activists for animals, TGG contributes a portion of the sales of our branded items to help care for the residents of The Alice Sanctuary. We also hold various raffles and fundraising events throughout the year in support of TAS. All of the items you see here help us help The Alice Sanctuary with the important work they do in rescuing abused and abandoned farm animals and also in educating the public about the realities of factory farming and what these animals would typically go through during their life on a farm. We cannot thank you enough for helping us ensure that there are enough funds for all the residents at TAS to live out the rest of their lives free from hard and full of love!
