Where Hearts and Hooves Matter
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to add almost 50 acres to our sanctuary, ensuring a bright future for the ever growing number of mini pigs in need. As little as $1.50 a month from each of our followers can change the future for ~300 pigs that require continued investment to live their best lives. READ MORE
My Pig Filled Life is a 501c3 non-profit organization specifically dedicated to promoting and supporting the rescue and care of mini pigs by providing the compassion, commitment and companionship they deserve. Our rescue journey started like many, with a mini pig and a big heart. After a few months of educating myself, I saw a growing need for rescue facilities in East Texas. So me and my Pearl started My Pig Filled Life Mini Pig Rescue to do what we could to make a difference. I’m a mom to two kids. I work full time as a purchasing consultant in the restaurant industry. I love GOD and I love the outdoors!
It all began a few years when back I saw a pair of piglets on a local livestock page. Like most people I didn’t know a thing about mini pigs or any pigs for that matter. BUT they were so cute right!?! A short while later I added two more piggies to the family! More cuteness and those itty bitties are just the best! Not long after adding our second pair did I realize I needed education about their needs, best habitats, feeding, etc. So like many I joined the pig pages to learn. Quickly I realized I didn’t know anything about mini pig care. More than that I saw so many pigs needing to be rehomed, so I offered to foster a pig. It was awesome! I opened my farm to many others soon after, and quickly was at a dozen! Seeing more and more heartbreaking stories I prayed about next steps. I truly believe that GOD has given me this farm and a huge heart to make a difference for these pigs through my commitment, compassion and companionship.
In five years... Pearl and I have rescued 371 pigs. We currently have 276 pigs with more than 200 adoptable and 172 in need of sponsorship. As part of our mission, all of our pigs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped upon intake. We have successfully spayed and neutered more than 350 rescues in 4 years of rescue.
