Rio originally came from a dude ranch in Colorado that had shut down and sent all of their livestock to slaughter. A friend of a friend pulled him straight off the slaughter truck. He kept him for several years and then Rio became ill and spent six weeks in the hospital. At that time he determined that he could not give Rio what he deserved and asked if he could relinquish him to us on the condition that he remain in sanctuary for the rest of his life. Once released from the hospital Rio finished his rehabilitation here on the ranch and has been with us ever since. Rio has become a part of our family and will live here safe, loved and adored for the rest of his life.

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!
