Bedtime at the Sanctuary

A huge thank you to GCS Alarms Ltd who upgraded our CCTV system yesterday with brilliant new cameras to keep us even safer. It is good to see what the horses are doing in the barn when our back is turned! Here is picture of Chocolate’s bedtime.

Charlotte the pig’s selfie

Charlotte, our elderly pig, had a new house built for her, but she did not want to venture up the wooden slope. It has taken several days to find a way of moving her without stressing her. This morning she decided if Carol could walk up the slope so could she and this is her ‘pleased with herself’ face. Is it a selfie pout or is she blowing a kiss? Whatever it is she is one happy pig!

Will you sponsor me for Christmas?

I’m bright, aaffectionate and cheerful. I love playing and eating. Sponsoring me will make a really special Christmas present for somebody…  Wishing all my fellow friendly creatures and supporters at the Sanctuary a very happy and peaceful 2016!

New piglet family rescued

The Sanctuary welcomes a beautiful new piggy family to a safe and fun-filled life with us.  A new enclosure has been made by volunteers for Mum Mary and her three little piglets. Mary is a Kunekune pig, a breed originally kept by Maoris in New Zealand. They are very friendly, hairy, rotund pigs!
