Pig Sanctuary

[singsong-insert:http://www.koinoniafoundation.com/music/Pig01.wav]

FOUNDED IN 1992

PIGS, A SANCTUARY is a place of refuge for abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted animals. 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 safe haven for approximately 400 animals, including 150 potbellied pigs, 60 farm pigs, 9 horses, 5 cows, 30 adoptable cats, 70 feral cats, 9 dogs, 25 goats and 4 turkeys.

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 they are often considered un-adoptable. The Sanctuary serves as a home of last resort for these animals and has played a crucial role in the placement of countless others.

Although our primary mission is to provide lifelong sanctuary to animals needing a place to call home, we also believe in educating the public on the plight of farm and domestic animals.

We conduct educational tours of the sanctuary, so that people may see first hand the exploitation of the wonderful sentient beings that find themselves in situations of abuse, neglect, slaughter houses or simply thrown on the streets to fend for themselves.

Last year we educated over 1,000 students, 500 individual families as well over 1,000 visitors who attended our two large public events.

Koinonia Foundation gave PIGS, a $5,000 grant to install watering stations so that staff would not have to carry massive amounts of water to the animals. Being freed from this task better enables them love and care for these animals, and allows for more time to educate thousands of people on the terrible plight of our sentient and valuable Earth relations.
