This is Stanley, one of our most social residents at the sanctuary!
Stanley came to us in October of 2010 as a tiny, 13 lb piglet. A kind-hearted woman spotted him running down a busy two-lane road at night as she was driving by. There was no home in sight and she, with the help of her kids, managed to catch him the next day using a plastic laundry basket. They then contacted us to see if we could give Stanley a home. We’re grateful that we had recently adopted out two pigs and so had room to take in little Stanley!
While Stanley is no longer a piglet, he’s still quite small compared to our other porcine residents. Everyone has fallen in love with him here (we hope it’s mutual!) and Stanley thrives on affection from his pig and human friends. He rolls over readily for belly rubs and is playful all day long!
In fact, if Stanley knows he can count on you for a rub or a treat and you shout his name, he’ll come bounding happily across the field to say hello.
