In October 2019 a brave young pig escaped transport between a confinement farm and the processing plant. She was marked for slaughter with paint down her back but somehow made her way to the Story County Animal Control Shelter. Her new caregivers had numerous requests to bring her home for dinner. Shelter staff urgently needed to find her a safe home, and the Haven answered their plea. We picked up Phoebe on November 15 and fell in love! She is loving and vivacious with no sign of trauma. After quarantine, our little miracle moved to the Pig Barn with Babe and Blossom. They have separate sleeping quarters with play dates on warm afternoons. Phoebe reminds us of the power of forgiveness and resilience. She will have long and loving life at the Haven!
Your sponsorship of Phoebe will help us ensure that she has enough healthy food to feed her belly, medical care when needed, and a warm place to sleep at night. Phoebe enjoys sharing with her friends. So if there are extra funds leftover, we will use them to help care for her friends at the Haven. We will send you periodic updates about Phoebe (delivered to your email inbox).
