Heartwood Haven Astro Finn Pig Greeting

Astro and Finn


Rescue Date

June 6, 2020


Astro and Finn arrived in June 2020. These two fascinate every visitor with their unique look. You see, they are mostly naked and have little hair. This is a trait of the tropical Yucatan pig breed. This breed is often used for laboratory testing due to their lack of hair and sweet disposition. Astro and Finn were test subjects for a study and were going to be euthanized after the study ended. Instead, Farm Animal Refuge negotiated their release and they made it to sanctuary here at Heartwood Haven. These two are inseparable! Astro thinks the best way to say hello is to walk by and rub himself against your legs. And Finn loves to bring branches he collected as presents to anyone he meets. We are happy to offer them sanctuary forever.
