Saving Animals & Healing Hearts has a number of permanent residents. For a variety of reasons they are unable to be adopted and remain here safe and happy. The following are just some of our current residents.


Pedro had a hard life before he came to live with us. He was rescued in poor health and was malnourished. He is much better now and enjoys his time at SAHH visiting the humans and hanging out with his friends Blondie and Harley. He is a gentle, sweet soul and we are glad he is part of our family!

Queen Rita was the largest pig rescued from the final eleven release of the SouthBay24 large rescue. Rita is the first Yorkshire pig we’ve ever had at our sanctuary. For a long time we tried hard finding her a home w lots of land she could roam free. Like the other, Rita was also confined alone in a small cement dog kennel. Rita weights aprox 1,000 lbs and being confined in that small space, not being able to walk or get even the slightest amount of exercise has lead to arthritis. She routinely gets checked by our vet and she is currently on medication that seems to be making her more comfortable. Rita is a pleasure to see every morning. Her voice and kind eyes will melt your heart with one glance. She loves a warm water morning mud hole, In sure the warm water feels so good on her body. You often see her napping outside under the warm sun. We’re not sure how long it’s been since she was able to do any of these small things that make pigs so happy. We would be extremely happy to see Rita get adopted by a sanctuary, but until that day comes... she is loved, spoiled with apples & bananas (her favorite), and a favorite to anyone that has scheduled a tour with us, or volunteered!

Roo is every bit as ornery as he is handsome! He loves to give the volunteers a run (actual running) for their money! We love his spunky personality and wouldn’t change him for the world!

Sweet, beautiful and unique. You may notice Rosie looks a little different. That’s because Rosie was the victim of a dog attack that left her with only one partial ear on the right, no ear on the left and deep scars on her shoulders. Rosie has a big personality and a voice to match when it’s time to eat . She loves belly rubs, scratches and treats. She doesn’t care much for dogs but who could blame her. Rosie is not spayed and at her size and age it would be a risky operation.

Rupert came to us in early August, 2018. At approximately 2 months old. His “family“ could not afford to neuter him or any of his medical care. So they sought a rescue to give Rupert a chance at his best life. Ruperts mom was the victim of greedy humans and under age breeding. Many breeders will impregnate a very young potbelly pig (they can get pregnant as early as three month old) they carry for for three months so at six months old Ruperts mom had a litter of piglets. As some young mothers do she could not deal with babies didn’t know what to do so she killed them. Rupert was the only survivor. At such a young age with no piggy mama Rupert had to learn how to be a pig from humans. When a piglet does not have his mama he doesn’t really know how to be a pig. They don’t always respect boundaries or no not to play with humans as if they were their own siblings. Rupert became very attached to our director. So much so that when others show him attention he tends to bite them. Rupert also became bonded with Oliver who also can never be with a herd of pigs. Oliver and Rupert will remain here in sanctuary SAHH
