GoFundMe for Medical Fund

Between routine health care, and unexpected university vet hospital visits we've depleted our medical funds. We currently have a mini pig (Bugsy) that needs a leg amputation as soon as possible, a large domestic pig (Mr. P) that needs an exam at WSU Veterinary...

Volunteer Day! May 19th 10-2pm

We're gearing up for event season and we would love a few hands to help tidy up the sanctuary. We need painting, field cleanup, weed pulling, mulch spreading, possibly post pounding, and a variety of odds and ends. A group of 10 -15 throughout the day would be great!...

Abby and Blitz, Peacemakers

Pigs never cease to intrigue me. We recently introduced Frances and Sonny, a rescued mother and son couple, to the rest of the sounder. In most ways it went better than expected. There were some battles, but everyone settled into their positions quickly- except for...

Late night at the sanctuary

Every night when it’s below 40 degrees I make a late night round between 10 and 11 to make sure every animal is either tucked in, or has what they need to be comfortable. I make sure Onyx isn’t stuck in the hay, and is able to snuggle up to Hammy. (They are our...

Sonny, Top Mini Pig

Sonny- now top mini pig! After several months of separation, Frances and her son, Sonny were able to meet the rest of the sounder face to face without a fence between them. It's always nerve wracking to watch them establish hierarchy. Tidbit and Sonny fought many...

Thanksgiving Thoughts

I sit at the breakfast table with a cup of English Breakfast Tea. It’s usually warm this Thanksgiving morning. The sun peaks through the intermittent clouds. A fog bank lazily rolls over the Horse Heaven Hills, on it’s surface a sliver of silver reflects the sun. The...

Elvis has Girls!

After 3 months a lonely bachelor, Elvis finally has rescue hens to watch over. It was so moving and beautiful to observe Elvis’ reaction. He was outside the coop when we released the hens into the coop. He listened intently to the commotion coming from the coop. In...

Walking 108 Years of History

Yesterday, I was able to spend a few luxurious hours at the farm property, walking the 10 acres, and making mental notes of what needs to to happen after we move in. The weather was lovely, and the sweet scent of spring was rising from the field. The Horse Heaven...

Finding the DREAM Property

We started looking at property in October of 2014. We looked at acreages throughout Benton and Franklin Counties. A few places would've worked but nothing felt like home. In the spring we nearly settled on a 5 acre place in Prosser, but lucky for us it sold too...

Meet Onyx, Our Pot Belly Pig!

In early February of 2015 I received a message from Kit Jagoda at River's Wish Sanctuary in Spokane. A woman in Spokane had contacted Pigs Peace Sanctuary (near Seattle) to explain that she desperately needed to rehome her 4 month old pot-belly pig, Onyx. She had...
