Photo Gallery | Photo Gallery: Baby Goat Takes Spokane By Storm

Flash is only 15-days-old, but he’s already had a run-in with Spokane Police. His cute ways even sent him to the Spokane County Juvenile Justice Center. Some say he was the scapegoat for more devious pursuits, but really, he’s just helping kids make their wishes come true.

Baby goats are the fundraiser tactic of choice for Wishing Star Foundation to help raise money for their non-profit. Volunteers travel around the region with baby goats to surprise unsuspecting “victims” with a bundle of cuteness that aims to snuggle his way to your heart.

We followed three volunteers including a “wish mother” through downtown Spokane on Wednesday morning to visit the Public Safety Building, Spokane County Juvenile Justice Center and Vanessa Behan Nursery Crisis Center.

Want to send a goat to a friend? Wishing Star is continuing their fundraiser through the end of this week. You can order a "goating" online at their website www.sendafriendagoat.com. When the goat arrives in your arms, any donation to the non-profit takes the goat away, but $50 sends it to the next person of your choice. Wishing Star Foundation helps grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3 and 21 in Eastern and Central Washington, and Idaho. 

To celebrate the goat week, Wishing Star is hosting a carnival and petting zoo this Saturday at A to Z Rental, located at 10903 E. Sprague in Spokane Valley. It's 1-3 p.m. and is free to all ages.
