Daisy (Pig)

5 years old

Daisy is quite the character.  She's the biggest and oldest of our pigs.  Daisy was picked up by animal control as a stray so we know nothing about her background.  She loves people and other pigs but we believe that she thinks she is a horse.  She has a wonderful friendship with Atlas and likes to sleep in the shelter with the horses at night where she built herself a little nest in one of the stalls.  She might not be a classic beauty but she is undeniably adorable.

Dot (Pig)

1 years old

When another sanctuary had a surprise litter of piglets and needed homes, we agreed to take the runt of the litter - Dot - and her sister, Harriet.  You can't see it in this picture but little Dot has a big dot right on the top of her head.  Dot is still a little girl but has a lot more growing to do.  She's one of the lucky ones here who has known only love in her life so she's a happy, friendly girl who squeals when she sees you coming and it's amazing what BIG squeals come out of such a little pig.

Hamlet (Pig)

2 years old

Hamlet was rescued by a kind woman in NC when his mother rejected him at birth.  She bottle fed him, got him neutered and took excellent care of him but as he grew, he needed more than she could provide so he came to live with us here at FSFS at about 7 months old.  He is friendly, funny and a little mischievious.

Harriet (Pig)

1 years old

Harriet came to us along with her sister, Dot when  another sanctuary needed homes for a surprise litter of piglets.  She's pretty girl who looks black in the dark but has streaks of red that show up in the sunlight.  Just like her sister, Harriet is one of the lucky ones who has never known anything but security and love and that makes her especially friendly and happy to meet people. She's still got a lot of growing to do but soon she and Dot will be joining the other pigs in the big pasture.

Jack (Pig)

2 years old

Jack is blind in one eye and his face and right ear will always bear the scars from a dog mauling prior to his rescue by Polk County Animal Control where he landed after being found wandering and injured.  He is the sweetest, most gentle pig in the world who refuses to let his tough pre-rescue life color his rosy color of the world.  He has a heart of gold.  We have no idea of age so we celebrate his birthday on the day he came to us!

Laverne (Pig)

2 years old

Laverne was our first  pig ever.  Poor Laverne was penned in a tiny little pen with no fresh water or food when animal control removed her.  Her saving grace is that she was penned up with her best friend, a tiny goat that we named Shirley.  Laverne had been fed lots of empty calories and had no room to exercise so she has a lot of weight to lose in order to be healthy and more mobile but she's on her way with Shirley right by her side.  Laverne is already getting around a little better and she absolutely loves people.  She comes running whenever she hears us coming and loves attention.  She also loves finally having a shelter with a soft bed of hay, soft green grass to run around on and healthy meals to eat on a regular basis.  And she really loves that she and Shirley will get to be together for the rest of their lives.

Samantha (Pig)

3 years old

Samantha is a young pig but we're not sure of her exact age.  When her owners moved out of their home and left her behind, this smart girl sought help from neighbors.  Just like a friendly stray dog showed up at their doors begging for food.  She was sweet, very talkative and nobody could say no.  Unfortunately, no one had the ability to keep her and they were worried that she could get hit by a car, attacked by dogs or suffer some other dire fate if they left her roaming free so they caught her in a large dog crate and brought her to FSFS.  We got her spayed and vaccinated and now she's safe and loved in her forever home.

Willow (Pig)

5 years old

When sweet Willow was a young pig, someone shot her in the back, leaving her paraplegic.  She was rescued by a good samaritan and deeply loved for the next 3 years.  But as Willow got older and bigger, she needed a new home so she came to us in the fall of 2021.  Although we originally intended to get a wheelchair for Willow, it quickly became apparent that she prefers to pull herself around using her front legs and she can really scoot.  She loves hanging out in the hay with the llamas,  likes dining with Willy and is a big fan of fresh fruit when it comes to snacks.  Whatever Willow lacks in mobility, she makes up for in personality!

Willy (Pig)

2 years old

To know Willy is to love Willy.  He is the youngest, happiest pig at FSFS and he is ALWAYS happy.  Willy was picked up as a stray by animal control with lots of skin problems and entropion (an uncomfortable eyelid condition.)  He has injections, medicated baths, and minor surgery on his eyelids but nothing has ever kept him down.  He loves everyone and everything is always thrilled to have company.
