You may remember the story of "Betty White," the goat who was left to fend for herself in a Seattle neighborhood in September.

Betty was one of a group of goats used to clear brush. She wandered around the Seward Park area until someone called New Moon Farm Goat Rescue & Sanctuary.

The great folks at New Moon were able to corral Betty and take her to their farm in Arlington.

Ellen Felsenthal of New Moon reported last week that Betty, along with her friend Jewel, had found a home. But now Ellen says the two were returned to the sanctuary - it was simply not a good fit.

Now Betty and Jewel are safe at the sanctuary, waiting to be adopted.

New Moon's latest rescue is a tiny 5-day-old doeling that was left on their doorstep just days before Christmas.

Ellen says the woman who had her was clueless and had been feeding her Gatorade and Coca-Cola, instead of milk.

"Little Holly couldn't stand or even hold her head up. Her eyes were clouded, and she had no appetite," Ellen says.

Ellen says now Holly is making good progress. Her eyes are clear, she's eating better and she is beginning to walk.
