After several days of sleeping and hanging around a residential house, Apple (fritters mother) was caught by the Medford Police Department. It is uncertain as to if she was abandoned outside of the city or if she was part of a wild herd. After arriving at Sanctuary One she was found to be pregnant. Months later a new lamb arrived who we now call Fritter. Fritter has adapted well to farm life. He is a spunky fellow just trying to find his own personality in this world. His breed is a St. Croix hair sheep so they are naturally unsocial with humans but even so they both do well with other animals and farm hands. Although we would like to adopt them out together we would make an exception for the right home. Fritter is around 6 months old as of November 2018.

Blinkin is a fun, affectionate Boer doe. She was born in 2009, and came to us with her Mother in 2010. So she has been with us almost 8 years! She's still ready and waiting for her forever home. She would love a herd with other goats similar to her to hang out with. She can be quite stubborn when she doesn't want to do something, but boy does she love to be loved on! She will freeze in place as long as you will pet her, and when that isn't enough she will cozy up to you and insist on more pets. This charming girl is more than ready for her forever humans and herd.

After living a harsh life at another farm, a mother sow was seized by animal control after the owner was charged with 30 counts of 2nd degree animal cruelty. On April 23, 2016 a mother Yorkshire cross sow gave birth to a tiny piglet named Pickles. Pickles was luckily born into captivity at the Whatcom Humane Society. From there he was brought to Sanctuary One as a piglet where he has developed into a fun outgoing pig. He loves to swim in his pig wallow and is a bit addicted to watermelons. After a harsh start to life Pickles is now in safe and loving care at our sanctuary. His favorite activity is running full speed throughout the pasture; running free and wild with our resident horses. He has a bit of a dominant personality but is learning his boundaries with a little bit of positive reinforcement. When the sun is shining you can often catch Pickles with his buddy Gumball rooting around in our pasture for acorns or sun bathing. He does well with veterinary care and lets us handle him when its time to perform vaccinations and routine checks. Although few people have the desire to adopt large pigs, he will always have a place at Sanctuary One without the fear of being abused or neglected. We are thankful Pickles was brought to our sanctuary where we continue to grow closer and closer to him as the years pass by. His outgoing and fun disposition is a great asset to the local education regarding large sows. He helps to remind people that pigs have feelings just like other animals. They feel sadness, grief, frustration and love just as all animals do. Welcome home Pickles!

Gumball is a Yorkshire rescued from a cruelty neglect case in Washington as a piglet. Luckily, he was too young to remember the trauma his mother experienced, so he is friendly and fun. Gumball will need a home where he will never end up on a plate. He would love to be adopted with his brother, Pickles. He is around around 2 years of age.

Django lived the first four years of his life on a heavy chain, treated like a lawnmower and nothing else. Now he has lots of friends and space to roam where he can learn what it means to be a happy, free goat. He has more to learn about interacting appropriately, especially when it comes to humans and fences. He enjoys shoulder rubs, treats, and testing new people to see what kind of reaction he can get out of them. He can only go to an experienced goat home, but for those that "get" him he is endless fun and entertainment with an endearing, playful personality. We are so grateful Django is unchained! Django is about 5 years old and still acts like a kid!

Sodapop is approximately 4 years old and has been at the sanctuary for nearly 2 years. Sodapop is looking for a home that understands him. He was mishandled as a piglet, and as a consequence only cares for certain people and can be somewhat unpredictable. He will only be adopted to an experienced home. However, Sodapop is not without his charm! He's smart and food motivated, making him easy and fun to train. He knows his name, comes when called, and sits nicely. When his tummy is full, he loves to stretch out on his side for belly rubs. Maybe you're the partner Sodapop has been in need of all his life?

Betty was confiscated from a backyard butcher along with several other animals. She ended up at an L.A. County shelter and from there was transferred to Farm Sanctuary. After being treated for illness, trimmed, vaccinated, and shorn, she was feeling much better. This long-legged lady is shy and sometimes hides behind the other animals, but every visitor that comes out is one more person to teach her that most people are kind and can be trusted. Betty was born in 2007 and has been with us since about 2013. She is approximately 12.. This special senior keeps hanging on and absolutely loves life here at our Sanctuary.

Grace is a lovely black and white goat. Grace was rescued from a neglect case by the Humane Society of the United States in conjunction with Douglas County Sheriff. They pulled 27 goats out of severe neglect. Many of the older goats had deformities due to inter-breeding and lack of basic care such as hoof trimming. Tiny babies were found locked in a dog crate. After being bottle-fed back to health, they were transferred to us and are now full grown. Grace is about 9 years old as of November 2018. She has been with us for nearly 8 years.

Pavarotti wakes a bit after dawn, stretches, moans, scratches, and generally lets everyone know he's waking up so they should too! He enjoys being rubbed behind his ears and will lift his head so his ears flop back and his teeth are visible. A goat as grand as his namesake. Pavarotti is a Boer mix with a neat rectangle on his forehead. He is super friendly and wants to say hi to everyone. Pav has been with us since 2012 and is approximately 15 years old.

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!

Freddy and Friday are Ambassadors for our education and outreach programs and thus are NOT available for adoption. They are listed on Petfinder for informational purposes only. Consider joining our Care Family and making a monthly donation to help care for animals like Freddy and Friday. Sign up now! http://sanctuaryone.org/donate-sponsor/carefamily/ Freddy and Friday are two Pygmy mix goats rescued by Multnomah County Animal Control (Oregon). Both were dehorned, but even with this painful procedure done as little kids, Freddy grew false horns called scurs. They curve towards his head and need to be trimmed a couple times each year. Their family had loved them, but lost their home. They were surrendered along with a dog. The dog was adopted, but the goats had no where to go until they were transferred to us. These brothers and best buds are friendly and calm. They are always looking for new and exciting ways to keep the staff and volunteers on their toes. They love to be rubbed and will walk into the middle of a school group to get all the attention. They are so good they have even attended Sanctuary events and walked down the sidewalk on leash!

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!
