San Clemente Island Goats


Chopin Valse No.7

In order to survive as a breed, San Clemente Island goats need geographical diversification and genetic diversity within the breed. If you would like to be a responsible steward for this highly-endangered breed, please consider beginning a breeding program. If you already have San Clemente Island goats, you may wish to get additional goats to improve your gene pool. If you don't want to breed goats, you may still be interested in purchasing any non-breeding goats available.

Only purebred San Clemente Island goats may be listed on this page. We are relying on the integrity and knowledge of our breeders to provide accurate information and to act ethically. If you would like to list a goat for sale or trade, please contact us with as many details as possible. For Sale listings will be removed 30 days after posting. If you're looking for a goat, let us know and we'll post it here.

Tips for purchasing goats

  • Consider asking the breeder to sell the goat pregnant. This will increase the gene pool in your area. Don't expect a guarantee of pregnancy.
  • Goats have to have permanent ID to ship interstate for breeding. Usually this means a scrapies tag.
  • Think biosecurity—any goats you buy should be dewormed, healthy, and test negative for diseases specified by state regulations. (Go to Map page to find out what your state requires. If your state doesn't have breeders listed, visit the US State Animal Import Regulations site posted by the USDA.)
  • The San Clemente Island Goat Association only lists purebred San Clemente Island goats on this For Sale page and on our Breeder List.
  • If you're selling to a zoo, please read our zoo page.
  • Unsure about Scrapies and Scrapies tags? Visit our Scrapies Page.
