Visiting Pigs Peace Sanctuary
Open: May 1st - November 1st.
Closed: November 1st - May 1st.
When we are open all visiting is scheduled by appointment only and will be afternoon times.
Each person must be pre-scheduled with name and must confirm the day prior to visiting.
We love our visitors though the size of groups may be limited for the enjoyment of all.
The sanctuary is home to many animals who have suffered abuse and neglect prior to life at the sanctuary. This is not a petting zoo. The animals' needs always take priority so visits may be cancelled due to critical animal needs.
Visiting / Volunteer Guidelines
You are a guest in the home of many rescued animals in various stages of healing.
We want you to enjoy your visit. Ask any questions you want. No subject is out of bounds and no question is dumb.
Our goal is to make your visit enjoyable and educational. You will have many good photo opportunities.
To schedule a visit
Please email Judy with the following information:
If we must cancel your scheduled visit due to weather or an animal emergent need we will reschedule your visit to the earliest availability.
We are forever grateful to visitors who bring a financial donation.
We have 190+ pigs who live at the sanctuary. All visiting is based on the activity of the sanctuary. Some days or weeks I have no visiting as we are busy with new rescues in trauma or pigs in acute medical conditions in need of intensive care. The animals always come first.
We have no staff and no help most days.
Mornings are full with feeding, cleaning and medical treatments, thus all visiting is scheduled for afternoons.
It is a joy to introduce people to the gentleness and true nature of pigs. I wish I could accommodate all visiting requests. I do the best I can.
Thank you for loving pigs,
