PIGS Animal Sanctuary exists entirely because of the generosity and commitment of our donors.  We do not buy or sell donor lists.  Most of our donors have come to know us by visiting the Sanctuary or learning of our work from television or newspaper accounts.

It is the regular support of this small group of compassionate individuals that has sustained the Sanctuary and its animal residents for more than a decade.

The Perfect Vegan Smoothie

The Perfect Vegan Smoothie

One easy way to start your day with a vegan plant-based meal is to have a smoothie! It is a faster alternative to a traditional breakfast and way healthier than just grabbing a muffin or bagel.

Your smoothie can have as little as two ingredients or as many as 20 and you can mix and match for endless varieties. It can be sweet or savory (think soup). But you basically want to include something from each of these categories:

  1. Liquid base like almond, hemp, cashew, rice or flax milk, juice, coconut water, or just plain ole water
  2. Fruits and/ or veggies like berries, kiwi, bananas, pineapple, dates, oranges and mango, red pepper, tomato, cooked sweet potato, squash
  3. Greens like spinach, lettuce, kale, cilantro, and parsley
  4. Nuts, seeds and grains like almonds, walnuts, hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, rolled oats, cooked quinoa or millet
  5. Add-ins like cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, maca powder, spirulina or wheatgrass
