PIGS Animal Sanctuary offers a refuge for abused, abandoned, and neglected animals. Founded in 1992, PIGS Animal Sanctuary is a true safety-net for a variety of animals -mostly potbelly and farm pigs.
Today there are more than 200 animals in our care, living in a safe haven.
Animals who arrive at the Sanctuary often have complicated medical or emotional needs, a history of abuse, neglect, or ailments related to factory farming or genetic engineering, and are often considered “un-adoptable.”
However, the Sanctuary seeks to find forever loving homes for some of our animals. We need your help to continue providing this life-saving refuge for animals who need us for survival.
