Replenish the Piggy Bank for Sanctuary One

LET'S HELP OUR SENIOR PIGS GET TO THEIR FAVORITE PLACE IN THE SUN

At Sanctuary One pigs have always been an integral part of the care farm life. Currently we are home to four large breed pigs (650 pounds roughly for our two younger pigs). We deal with health related issues that stress our older pigs, such as Jigsaw, as their joints endure over 800 pounds of pressure.

As three older pig friends age and deal daily with growing arthritis and other pains, we have prioritized building a new large pig habitat in our pond pasture.

This new build with spacious evening accommodations would allow our seniors to have a significantly shorter walk to their mud bathing spots in the summer, and their favorite grass spots in the spring. Currently the distance from their beds in the barn to the mud baths under the trees puts a great deal of pressure on our seniors’ bodies. https://sanctuaryone.org/pigs/

[Update, 5/14/20]
Recently Lulu, one of our senior pigs passed. We will continue to fundraise for the pig habitat in her honor and for our future senior pigs as the new location will increase their quality of life as they age.  We will be naming her side of the build in her honor, as she was the inspiration for the project.

In funding our $12,000 goal you’re supplying them with their annual vet care and food costs, as well as ensuring their new pig habitat is built – offering the best life possible to our seniors. 

We appreciate all of you who decide to be philanthropig and support our critical needs for the pigs. If you have interest in being further engaged in Sanctuary One, please visit our website (link below) and consider volunteering, engaging your business as a corporate partner, and/or donate in-kind to the care farm.

The other benefit in creating their own pig habitat (which would allow them to still have access to the full pond pasture in the morning), is that it would help free up four stalls in the barn for our other goats and alpacas.
