What you'll do

How often do you have the chance to spend time with an adorable pot belly pig? Well, here is your chance! All of the pot belly pigs at Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary have been rescued, whether from abuse, neglect, or simply owners who were not properly educated about how to care for them. With so many myths being perpetuated about these so called "mini pigs" we want to educate about what they are really like while we have fun spoiling them with you. Come and enjoy a piggy day when you can come, take a tour of our entire facility, learning about the work we do with horses, goats, dogs, cats, and pigs. Finish the tour by helping us to feed our pigs their dinner and some treats and you will get happy grunts and tail wags in return!

Other things to note

Whenever you are interacting with animals, it is important to keep in mind that animals can be unpredictable. They may accidentally scratch you or even grab a finger when they mean to grab a treat from your hand. Our pigs are not aggressive generally, but it is always best to be cautious around all animals!

I am a co-founder of Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary, Inc., a nonprofit animal rescue and sanctuary dedicated to providing a quality life to the animals who need it the most. Rescuing and educating about animals is one of my passions in life, but I don't think I love anything more than I love pigs! Our herd of rescued pot belly pigs changed my life and taught me to think about the food on my plate, and look about animals as friends instead of food, and maybe they can do the same for you. Even if you do not choose to become vegetarian or vegan, you will still get so much out of an experience with our pigs, and it will be something for you to remember for a long time!

    Oh what a perfect experience- we loved it. Our tour guide was super nice and his love for the animals was infectious and wonderful to see. All these animals are so clearly loved, and it was so fun to pet the pigs and the horses. Only complaint was that I didn’t have room in my car to take a goat home. ;)

    The experience was truly wonderful in just a short bit of time. The sanctuary let you spend time with all different kinds of animals aside from the pigs, such as goats, horses, and cats and the owners and workers truly care and provide their animals with a quality life. I love that so many of the animals are rescues and are given a happy home with lots of care. I will 100% be back for another visit in the near future!

    This was a fun experience - even on the coldest day! Getting a chance to interact with abd feed the animals was so much fun! The small group allowed for everyone to get a chance to interact with all the animals as well. Would love to visit again!
