Matteo was a little goat kid who lived locked in a corral until, one day, the owner of the corral decided to allow Matteo a second chance at life. Matteo’s is a rare case whereby the person who was responsible for him had a change of heart and chose not to harm him. The owner of the site sought someone to take care of Matteo and he was inundated with offers. Of course, we knew that most people did not want to provide Matteo with a long and happy life, and instead saw him as a future meal for their dinner table. So we decided we must save him. So we drove to Burgos – some 350 kilometres from the sanctuary and brought Matteo back to his new home.

When we first saw Matteo, it was love at first sight. We could not believe how little he was, just the size of a medium dog. And we were not the only ones to fall in love with him. When he arrived at Wings of Heart, he stole the hearts of Montxito and Datxu and the three share a very special bond. Matteo is outrageously happy in his new life. He loves his family and does not know how lucky he is to have been given a second chance at life.
