Farm Sanctuary, a national farm animal rescue and protection organization championed by Jon Stewart, rescued Benedict along with over 170 animals. They've been working with Benedict at their Watkins Glen, New York, shelter and now he's thriving!

Since getting his new set of wheels, Benedict has been able to run around the farm with his friends and is happier than ever. He especially loves to play tag all day long with his best friend, Chucky!

Benedict and Chucky are extra lucky because they get to live on the shelter's turkey farm. National shelter director Susie Coston told TODAY that they love to run with the chickens who live with them.

The Lamancha goat has been getting stronger and stronger every day and doesn't need help getting up on his own any more. He's been reversing some of the muscle loss in his legs, but he's also enjoying playing in his new wheelchair with friends.
