Pickles is a happy piglet who will grow up to be a big farm pig. He is a Yorkshire rescued from a cruelty neglect case in Washington. Luckily, this boy was too young to remember the trauma his mother experienced, so he is friendly and fun. Pickles will need a home where he will never end up on a plate. He would love to be adopted with his brother, Gumball. Both piglets are neutered and are working on their training to become well mannered as they grow.

Jigsaw is not up for adoption (he is listed here for informational purposes only) and will live out his life at the Sanctuary as an Education Ambassador teaching people just how wonderful, loving, and intelligent pigs are. Please consider making a donation to help with his care. It takes a lot of good, yummy food to keep Jigsaw happy! Consider joining our Care Family and making a monthly donation to help care for animals like Jigsaw. Sign up now! http://sanctuaryone.org/donate-sponsor/carefamily/ Jigsaw was brought to us from the Boise Idaho Humane Society on January 13, 2012. He had been found on the side of the road near a hog farm. He was tiny, malnourished, and had pneumonia. We don't know if he escaped or if he was tossed out. But, either way, he was found as a tiny piglet and got healthy in a foster home before being transferred to us. There he learned to love humans and to get along with all kinds of animals. He even learned to sit on command. But, he was growing larger every day, and soon it was time for him to find a more permanent place to live. That was when he made the long trip to Sanctuary One with the help of two very dedicated humane society volunteers. He's a big sweetie and loves belly rubs. He's not as food-motivated as his sister, and he will pick the green beans out of his bowl and put them to the side just like a child. Jigsaw was named after the pig in the children's book, Granny Gomez and Jigsaw, about a Granny who needed a special pet and saved a baby pig from becoming someone's breakfast. Then she had someone to share her watermelon with and help her with jigsaw puzzles. Jigsaw loves when we have the sprinklers on in the pasture. He'll go over and rub his butt on the sprayer. What a goober!

Lulu is so friendly we have asked her to be one of our permanent Education Ambassadors. She is not available for adoption. She is listed on PetFinder for informational purposes only. Please consider donating to help us with her care. It takes a lot of good, yummy food to keep Lulu happy! Consider joining our Care Family and making a monthly donation to help care for animals like Lulu. Sign up now! http://sanctuaryone.org/donate-sponsor/carefamily/ Lulu was brought to us from Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Washington on August 20th, 2010. She had been rescued from becoming a breeding sow in a factory farm. This fate is often worse than death. She would have most likely been forced to live her whole life in tiny cage, unable to even turn around. Pigs in factory farms often go insane much like people in internment camps. Breeding sows are repeatedly artificially inseminated, which is akin to rape for these intelligent and sensitive beings. They have litter after litter of babies who are only allowed to nurse through metal bars, for fear of being crushed in the terribly cramped quarters. Babies are taken away as soon as possible to fatten up for slaughter and to force the mothers to get pregnant again and again. They are never allowed to root in the cool mud or lounge in a lovely pond, enjoying the sun and the breeze, like Lulu loves to do. She was brought to us at just 3 months old, after being spayed to prevent her from ever getting pregnant, but also to protect her from ovarian cancer and to decrease unwanted behavior during heat cycles (which come on with pigs about every 21 days!). Lulu loves racing in to dinner to try to eat all the good stuff before her brother gets to the table. She is especially fond of apples and pears. She does not like shots, but then again, who does? Lulu appreciates a cold beer before her vet appointments and naps in the shade. Pigs are creatures of comfort, so it's the simple things in life that make them happy. When the ducks and geese are laying eggs, Lulu will follow us out there in the morning to get herself a treat. Usually she has to wait for us to pick them up, then we ask her to sit nicely for a treat, which she does just like a dog. Such a smartie!
