- Sometimes when you leap out on faith, you find your true calling. Leanne Lauricella left a lucrative career as an event planner in New York City and found that sense of purpose rescuing farm animals: a pig named Piney, chickens, roosters, but mostly goats.

She has 11 goats now at her sanctuary in Warren County, New Jersey, about 70 miles from Manhattan. And they have a huge following on Instagram. The Goats of Anarchy page is followed by people from all over the world.

When Leanne started the GOA Instagram page, she had about 2,900 followers. After the first photo, it jumped to 30,000. Now, more than 197,000 -- and it's through social media that finds her new cases.
