Hamilton came to Pigs Peace Sanctuary as a tiny runt piglet on the verge of death from starvation.

Hamilton’s favorite activity is eating the clover in the fields.

What most people don’t know about Hamilton is that he is the last one to bed every night. He will often be up very late on summer nights enjoying a full moon.

Hamilton’s secret that he doesn’t share with other pigs is that Judy will occasionally give him a late night snack before bed when she checks on everyone and finds he is still up.

Hamilton’s favorite bedtime snack is a peanut butter sandwich. He loves it when the peanut butter sticks to the roof of his mouth.

Hamilton’s favorite sanctuary visitors bring jars & jars of peanut butter!
