Our Princess came to us via an owner surrender situation. She had been purchased from a breeder and then bred. When her family had to move away they could not take her with them. She lives here at the sanctuary in harmony with our chickens. She just loves the little cluckers! They all pile on top of her at night when she sleeps. One big pile of poultry!

Penelope LOVES LOVES LOVES chickens as she grew up with her own pet chicken when she was younger. This chicken and Penelope did everything together and were BFF’s. The chicken would sit on Penelope’s back and they would take little strolls around the farm. One day a hawk swooped down and grabbed Penelope’s chicken killing it.  Penelope was totally devastated and it took a long time for her to get over the loss of her little chicken as pigs are very intelligent and emotional beings. They have incredible memories, can get easily offended and need a lot of love and respect from those around them.

Penelope is an amazing piggy with way too much attitude! She goes into heat every three weeks so during this period of time she gets pretty grumpy but the rest of the month she is absolutely the loveliest piggie! Penelope is unfortunately too old to spay combined with having been bred makes it very dangerous. So we just live in harmony with her cycles and complex emotions.
