Resident piglet, Wanda, is adapting to her new home at Heartwood Haven Sanctuary.

Fundraising Campaign for the Three Little Pig(lets)

Just under two weeks ago, Heartwood Haven expanded the sanctuary grounds once again, this time to intake three piglets in need of a new home. We were able to build a secure temporary barn using primarily recycled materials and a budget of $300 USD. Now that a few days have passed, we are looking toward the future for the piglet trio. Today, we launched a YouCaring campaign specifically to raise funds for robust fencing, a barn, spaying Wanda, and care-taking for the three rescued piglets. Please visit YouCaring and help us continue providing an improved, safe, and happy life for Wanda, Yoshi, and Koopa. As a 501(c)(3), your donations to Heartwood Haven are tax-deductible.
