Do you love cats?  PIGS is in need of volunteers who can commit to a minimum of three hours per week (or  bi-weekly) to help us clean the catteries, brush the cats and simply sit and socialize the cats.  If interested in volunteering please use the contact page to email the sanctuary! 


PIGS, Inc., a Sanctuary is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.


The Sanctuary is a place of refuge to abused, abandoned, neglected or unwanted animals.  The Sanctuary specializes in the care of pot-bellied and domestic pigs, but shelters other farm and domestic animals as well. 

Typically, animals residing at the Sanctuary have complicated medical and/or emotional needs, a history of abuse and/or neglect, diseases or ailments related to factory farming or genetic engineering, and are often considered “un-adoptable”. 

The Sanctuary seeks to find forever homes for many animals, but serves as a permanent home for up to five hundred un-adoptable animals on any given day.

What We Do

We create a place of refuge for abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted animals.

Founded in 1992, PIGS Animal Sanctuary has been a place of refuge. We specialize in the care of potbellied pigs and farm pigs, but shelter other farm and domestic animals as well. The Sanctuary currently provides a cage-free safe haven for approximately 400 animals, including potbellied pigs, farm pigs, horses, cats, dogs, goats and many other species.
