 . Pepper .
My name is Pepper. I’m a 1 year old neutered(male), friendly pig who wants to go go go! I weigh 45lbs currently and will weigh more as I grow to approx 75lbs. Let me say first that I am an indoor pet that likes some outdoor time. I like to root around and do zoomies because I am young & energetic. I flip over my water dish a lot because I think it’s fun! When I’m bored I like to get into things so it’s good to always keep an eye on me when I’m out to play and learn, using my food for teachable moments or enrichment with my rooting mat or balls and toys is a great way to keep me properly amused. Otherwise if I don’t have interactive things to occupy my time, I may take off the trim in the hall or chew on the carpet or flip over the garbage can ?. I don’t know any better because I’m a pig. I’m sensitive so there is no need to yell at me, simply give me something to do ?. I’m crate trained and when your not able to watch me it’s a good idea to have me rest in there. I’m sort of potty trained, meaning if you designate a spot I’ll go there and learn over time that that’s the spot I to go on using pee pads. Making me a giant litter box wouldn’t be a bad idea, unless there is easy access to going outside; you can work on teaching me that. I love to sun bathe, and get belly scratches! I know how to sit, sit pretty and turn. I love the game chase too. If you think you’d be a good home for me please let us know. You can come visit and meet me; a home visit is required. Should you ever need to go away on vacation I am good at boarding at my foster’s business (Cody Cozy’s Pals in Colonie) anytime! Serious inquiries only. To apply: www.heartsherd.com/forms

 . JADE .
 . JADE .  . JADE .
Meet JADE! She was adopted by our rescue a few years ago but sadly her owner passed away. She was in such a wonderful home and now she resides at a boarding facility. She is a sweet girl however she prefers to be the diva dog of the household so we want to find a home where she is the only dog. She is not aggressive to dogs that she encounters in the community! We are unsure how she will do with cats but a meet and greet can be done. Also, she will do best in a home with teens and older. Please ask us how to make Jade a part of your home.

We had a special visitor in the coop this evening! Our neighbor’s handsome peacock, Fernando, paid a visit and enjoyed some chicken feed.

What a freeloader! 😂

Welcome to the sanctuary, Petunia! Unfortunately the weather isn’t the best to introduce her to but she had preferred to be outside to root around at her foster mom’s house.

Thank you, Cody Wasial, for taking such great care of Petunia. She’s lost weight and her skin health is back to normal. 🐽❤️

Ava, the 🐮, isn’t phased by this impending storm. 😂

This looks to be a rough one!
