Hercules the pig

our story

The Haven’s story begins with one baby pig. This little pig was so small that he fit right into the palm of your hand. Who knew this little pig, named Hercules, would be the beginning of something so amazing and special?

As Hercules fought and struggled to live, Haven founders Alison and Danny Stone held him and nursed him until he became strong. Hercules’ Haven is home to farm animals, large and small, who tend to be the most overlooked when it comes to animal cruelty. Too often, are not seen as living, feeling beings. We are here to show the animals love, care and kindness that many of them have never experienced.

When visiting Hercules’ Haven, we welcome you to connect with the animals and experience the peace that comes with your new found bond. When you look into an animal’s eyes and really connect, you can find friendship and healing of your own soul.

Our Mission

We are a forever Haven for farm animals that provides opportunities for people to connect and restore while nurturing respect for all creatures.

Our Vision

  • We will rescue and give forever Haven to abused, neglected and unwanted farm animals.
  • We help move Iowa and this world to more compassionately see animals for who they are.
  • We will help heal the minds and souls of all that visit the Haven.
