Rosie is the name of a 10-year-old potbelly pig we rescued two years ago from unwilful but serious neglect. She was taken in previously by a woman in her early eighties who saved her from an auction but didn't have the physical or financial means to meet even her basic needs.
When we went to pick up Rosie and her companion, Peanut, we found them living with their owner in a feces-filled rundown shack. They’d been fed left overs from the woman’s "Meals on Wheels" food assistance program, their hoof nails were curled up inches above their feet, and their skin was infested with parasites to the point that they had scratched much of it off. They were also chewing on anything they could in the house, due to malnutrition and boredom. (They’d not been allowed outdoors for over three years.)
Rosie's Fund will specifically be used to cover medical, care and feed expenses for our current residents. This fund will remove our dependence on fundraising and outreach events which are on hold right now due to the current pandemic situation.
Rosie’s Fund will also be used to help owners with temporary companion farm animal care & feed expenses — allowing the animals to stay in place when it is deemed in their best interest.
With this fund, we are ultimately committing to being there for more animals like Rosie.
Please join us! All contributions, big and small, will have a direct impact on farm animals.
Thank you!!! 🌸🐽❤️
