About Troll House Animal Sanctuary

The Troll House Animal Sanctuary is a non profit animal rescue located in Williamstown NJ. Focused on Chickens and Potbelly Pigs but open to all sentient beings.  

My name is Eileen Persia. I am the founder of The Troll House Animal Sanctuary. 
I was inspired to start a sanctuary the day I went vegan over 4 years ago. I had been a vegetarian for 15 years prior. I just didn’t know that I was still contributing to the exploitation and death of animals eating eggs, dairy and using products tested on animals.
I started my search for the perfect property. Big enough to move my horses, run my grooming business and start a sanctuary. 
On Dec 28, 2018 I made settlement on what became known as “The Troll House”. It got it’s name from the little castle structure to left of the home. The house was in major disrepair but it was adorable and tucked into 7 beautifully wooded acres in Williamstown NJ. 
A year into renovation, I discovered a lump in my left breast. (thanks to my dog Chewy for jumping on me and causing a bruise or I wouldn’t have found it until it was much more advanced) On Sept 3, 2020 I was diagnosed with Her2+ hormone receptive - breast cancer. A rare, very aggressive and quickly spreading cancer. 
My treatment was just as aggressive. I had 4 months of chemotherapy followed by a partial mastectomy, radiation, physical therapy and a full year of Herceptin infusions. 
During this time I fought so hard to keep going because I knew I still had so much left to do. My animal companions really are what kept me going. Along with my family, friends and clients. 
my final treatment was on Oct 29, 2021 and I am happy to report I am cancer free!
My entire outlook on life has changed and my passion for all animals is even stronger. 
I moved into The Troll House and started grooming again on Sept 3,2021  The one year anniversary of my cancer diagnosis. 
I have since welcomed 5 potbelly pigs, 20 chickens, 8 guinea pigs, 2 bearded dragons and 2 ducks to the TTHAS residence where they will live out their entire natural lives in peace and treated with the respect and dignity they all deserve. 
My plans are to expand. Giving more animals a safe landing. Future goals are to have a large barn built, tons of fencing put up and just to be able to provide top notch Care to these deserving but mostly overlooked animals. 
I aim to educate about them, the care they require and about the horrors they can face for simply just being an animal. 
Donations from this Patreon are used to provide feed, housing, enrichment and veterinary care to the animals. 
WE are extremely grateful for your Patronage. 
I am a NJ Non Profit Corporation. Currently working on getting our 501c3 status.

In order to expand and take on more animals I need to make sure each of our resident’s needs is met and then some. 
I work full time and pay 98% for everything they need currently. More Patreon members would ease the strain on my finances and would secure a safe, stable new home for more animals in need.
