Help start a pig sanctuary!

Hi! My name is Carey Webb and I'm a pig mom. I live in Maryville, TN with my husband and 2 boys.My goal is to start a pig sanctuary and rescue pigs in bad situations. We live in a subdivision with a very small yard. This is preventing us from being able to save these wonderful animals and give them a loving home. It all started with Kookie, my 300 pound "minipig". When we went to pick her up she was only about 1 pound and could hardly drink milk yet. Today she is not so "mini". Since having her I have been able to experience what intelligent and loving creatures pigs are. All pigs deserve to live happy healthy lives and be loved. No pig deserves to be caged meat. Size doesn't matter. Market pig or minipig. So many people hear the term "minipig" and go out and buy one thinking it's going to stay small. Then they get big and are cast out like trash. Currently we have 3 pigs and are on our way to rescue a 4th tomorrow. We were browsing craigslist one night and ran across an ad for "meat pig". I couldn't stand the thought of this baby getting caged up and treated like nothing more than a slab of meat and one day being hauled off to a slaughter house. I would love to be able to save so many more pigs from their terrible lives but I simply do not have the space. There are so many pigs in our area that need help and I would love to be their savior and rescue than and treat them all How they deserve to be treated. I would appreciate any help anyone can give to help me achieve this dream. Thank you and God Bless! You can see my family of pigs on Instagram @kookieandkipper_minipigs
