Saube Pig Rest In Peace

Dear All, It is with great sadness that we have had to say goodbye to our beautigul pig Saube. In August 2019 she was diagnosed with A mammary tumour which was malignant and was operated on to remove the tumour. Saube recovered well from the operation but the vet said they could not gaurentee it would not return. 2.5 years later the Cancer had returned. The results from the Post Mortem shown it had spread through her body, Uterus, Liver, Large & Small Intestines and Spine. If it was not for Niall Connolly and his Team at Leahurst Campus, University of Liverpool, Saube would have not had another 2.5 years of life. We thank them dearly for the care and attention they have given her. We will miss her beautiful, friendly nature dearly. Saube has now crossed over the rainbow bridge to be with the rest of her piggy friends on her next journey through lifes path. R.I.P Beautiful girl.

Boris, Housey & George

Over the last 6 months we have lost 3 pigs to ill health, Boris, Housey and George, all 3 pigs suffered with severe arthritis and weakness in their joints which is very common in pigs as they get older. If you look at a pigs legs, they are only short in comparison to their body. the weight of the body over time puts strain on their legs. They will be very much missed and are now with all the other pigs we have rescued who have now gone over the rainbow bridge. R.I.P. We will always love you.

Rehome Stan, Ollie & Kevin

Stan, Ollie and Kevin have found a forever home in the Cotswolds with Tom Raikes and his family and will be moving to their new home on Tuesday 27th January. Stan, Ollie and Kevin have been in our care for 2.5 years and it is wonderful that they now have a new life and adventure ahead of them. We would like to wish them every happiness and a long and healthy life. They will be dearly missed. Another happy ending.

Happy New Year

Happy New year to each and everyone of you. We hope you have had a lovely festive season. We know it has been a difficult time all over the world as some of you would not have been able to spend Christmas and the New Year with some of your loved ones. We hope 2021 will bring new hope, new beginnings and that everyone around the world gets vaccinated and keeps safe. Please wear your Mask, Gloves, Sanitise your Hands and keep your Distance until it is safe to mingle once again. Babe & Bella pigs have now been rehomed and have a lovely new family. They recently sent some snowy pictures of them enjoing the snow. Also Pepsi and Bobby were also rehomed before Christmas and have settled in very well. Keep Smiling.

Babe & Bella Rehomed

Babe & Bella were rehomed to their forever home on Friday 02nd October 2020. They have now gone to live with Sarah Smith and her family. We would like to say a massive thank you to all of them for giving both pigs a happy and caring home and wish them a happy and long life. This is always the best possible outcome for our rescue pigs. We will miss them dearly but know they have gone to the right place. xx

Changes at Pigs Inn Heaven

Due to decisions made out of our control we have had to make some changes. As most of you may know we have now moved to North Wales but because we have had many problems with the Councils especially with the relocation of the Pigs we have had to rethink how we run the sanctuary moving forward. The sponsorships have now been removed as from 15th September 2020. We will not be taking in anymore rescue Pigs or Turtles, general visits have had to stop. We will still offer a rehoming scheme (Pigs only) and your kind donations will still be greatly recieved.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported the sanctuary over the years it as been greatly appreciated by all of us. We have rescued many Pigs and Turtles over the 9 years, lives that would have been lost if we had not been there to help.  We will still be sending out a quarterly newsletter so you can see what the Pigs and Turtles are getting upto. All sponsorships that have recently been purchased will continue until September 2021 and receive their quarlerly updates.

We wish each and everyone of you best wishes for the future and please wear your PPE and keep safe. Thank you.

Keep Safe

We hope you are all keeping safe and wearing your PPE throughout the pandemic. It has been a difficult time for everyone. The more mixing we do the more important it is to keep to the health and safety guidelines when out and about. The pigs are thinking of each and everyone of you. Oink Oink.

Pig Wallows Out of Stock

Our Pig Wallows are now out of stock, unfortunately the company that were making them have now stopped and we will not be able to supply any more wallows in the future.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Pig Wallows for Sale

We now have various sizes of pig wallows for sale. Pigs need to be able to cool down in the Summer months and our pig wallows are just ideal, they are robust, hardy and the pigs cannot break them unlike an inflatable swimming pool. You can add mud to the wallow so they can have a mud bath which protects their skin from getting burnt.

Terrapin Outdoor Pool

The Terrapins have now moved to an outdoor pool for the Summer months. The natural sun rays are very beneficial to the terrapins and their health and well being so is essential that they can spend time outside. They also have the chance to graze on grass and stretch their legs.
