Where: San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus, 3500 Burnet Drive.

Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays.

Profile: Blitzen was fearful when he arrived as a stray at the San Diego Humane Society, but continues to become more comfortable with people. Blitzen loves taking yummy treats, such as apple slices, from his caregiver’s hands. Anglo-Nubian goats like human interaction and will take every opportunity to be at your backdoor bleating for your attention, according to the Humane Society. They are active animals who do well in a large space where they have plenty of room to roam. These goats are can be loud, so Blitzen may not make the best pet where there are close neighbors.
