Hello! Thank you for being here!
I'm Allie, West Michigan piggy caretaker. We took in our first 3 residents in May of 2018, and created a microsanctuary for a small herd of three wonderful pigs. We have 12.5 acres in West Michigan that we hope to use for more animals as we grow and increase financial support.

How your contribution matters:
The pigs feeding cost is about $50 per month for their nutrient dense pellet food & other veterinarian-recommended supplements. Straw and hay are about $40 per warm month or $120 average per cold month. Well-visit veterinary care on site is about $340 per 9-10 months (at least one visit every 10 months for hoof/tusk trimming & a physical examination.) Other small predictable costs are around $20-50/month: vitamins, oils, cracked food or water bowls, thrift store blankets and comforters in winter months, occasional de-worming. We are building up their emergency care fund so that when the need strikes, we are prepared. I am working toward having $3000 in an urgent care fund for them (and the cat and dog residents) that live here, to use as needed.
We recently spent about $200 on crushed cement for hoof care & cleanliness in their enclosure, and another $200 on an insulated winter hut. The costs add up and any amount is appreciated to help offset the costs. Thank you so very much for your consideration.
* Building another pig (and a chicken) house will be a comparatively huge financial undertaking in the spring, we save any extra donation money for the pig's emergency fund & for future building and growth.


One last note: We are currently a privately run sanctuary, not a legal non-profit. As we grow, I am open to exploring the possibilities and would love to hear any advice or experience that any of you have with regard to staying private vs. moving toward a 501(C)(3) structure.

Thank you for your support!
