About

We are Pigs in the Wood, a non-profit sanctuary passionate about pig welfare. We rescue pigs from slaughter, abuse and neglect; and offer them the freedom of a natural woodland home for the rest of their lives.

We need to raise money to renovate our sanctuary. The lockdowns meant no visitor donations for nearly a year, and with daily running costs and vet bills adding up to nearly £2000 a month, it has left us with limited funds.

If everyone reading this appeal gives £3.00 or more, it would be a brilliant boost towards our target.

Our priority is to build a new, larger stable block with electricity. Next to this building would be a new food-preparation area with hot water.

Next, we aim to reinforce the fencing around the woodland.

Another priority is to build an education cabin to raise awareness about animal welfare on a larger scale.

Once our renovations are complete, we will continue to offer a second chance to pigs in need, so please give what you can to our Renovation Donation appeal. Your kindness will make it happen!

Your Renovation Donation is received with heartfelt thanks.

Pigs in the Wood - Renovation Donation Appeal from Pigs in the Wood

All pigs deserve to be loved, but some are not so lucky.

We are 'Pigs in the Wood', a non-profit sanctuary passionate about pig welfare. We rescue pigs from slaughter, abuse and neglect; and offer them the freedom of a natural woodland home for the rest of their lives.

Sadly, some of our pigs were badly mistreated before we rescued them. They were denied bedding, companions and daylight; and lived alone in cold, concrete pens - yet the trust they show us at our sanctuary is truly heart-warming.

Please help us! We need to raise money to renovate our sanctuary, so we can continue to rescue pigs who are suffering. The lockdowns meant no visitor donations for almost a year, and with daily running costs and vet bills adding up to nearly £2000 a month, it has left us with limited funds.

We are hoping that our fantastic fans, visitors and supporters will be kind enough to make a donation. If everyone reading this appeal gives £3.00 or more, it would be a brilliant boost towards our target.

Our priority is to build a larger stable block, with electricity for cosy heat lamps during winter. Alongside this building would be a new food-preparation area with hot water. Feeding our hungry hogs every day is no picnic - some of our pigs weigh over forty stone!

Next, we aim to reinforce the fencing around the woodland, hopefully before our roaming residents make pig-shaped holes in the walls!

Another priority is to build an education cabin at our sanctuary. Working alongside schools and adults in our community will enable us to raise awareness about animal welfare on a larger scale.

Once our renovations are complete, we will continue to offer a second chance to pigs in need. Pigs don't ask for much, just a loving home and a full belly, so please give what you can to our Renovation Donation appeal. Your kindness will make it happen!

Your Renovation Donation is received with heartfelt thanks.
