QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - An unlikely duo comprised of a miniature horse and goose in Bucks County has found its forever home.
Waffles, a 6-year-old miniature horse, and Hemingway, a goose, were rescued from unsanitary living conditions on the same farm in July.
Having formed an inseparable bond, the Bucks County SPCA sought to keep the pair together.
Rachel Freeman, a shelter supervisor, said their bond was forged while they were living in deplorable conditions.
"Everything they've gone through, they've gone through together," Freedman said. "So for us to bring them in here and separate them would have been pretty detrimental," Freeman said.
The pair's adoption was finalized Wednesday afternoon.
“Waffles and Hemingway have left our barn for their new home! Waffles hopped right in and was ready to go with his best buddy by his side,” the Bucks County SPCA wrote in a Facebook post. Video shows the mini horse joyfully hopping into a trailer en route to his new home.
“We will miss them, but we couldn’t be happier for this special pair," the shelter added.
