Potbelly Pig and Friends Rescue
Juma's Potbelly Pig Rescue center accepts vulnerable pot belly pigs and farm friends into a welcoming and caring environment. Animals on our farm have access to open pasture and heated shelter. We love all of our animals as cherished family members. We provide a permanent home for unwanted, neglected, abused babies including those whose parents are simply unable to care for them any longer and wish their loved-ones to live in an animal paradise here on Earth.
We are located outside of Woodburn, Oregon and have been taking in pot belly pigs since 2003. We also accept their companions including what I call my "Menopausal Mamas", hens who no longer lay and so are no longer desired despite their tireless years of work. We also have plenty of "hot-stuff" roosters inherited by city-folks expecting hens and unable to keep them because of city ordinances. The pigs' companions have also included goats, ducks, rabbits, geese, llamas, ferrets, the usual barn cats, a cow and a peacock. Everyone lives together (mostly!) in harmony frequently sleeping together.

The pigs are so generous to share grass with the Llamas
We have an excellent farm vet, Dr Blake, who makes the necessary routine and emergency visits to the rescue. Given that many of the piggies and other critters received are in poor health they understandably need a lot of medical care plus the prerequisite love and attention needed to recuperate.
While ultimately deciding on family practice and care of humans I originally studied wildlife biology and try to keep up with all of the newest information on pot belly pigs and am happy to share my knowledge with any pot belly pig owners who wish to provide appropriate care. Please check out my education pages. Should you be interested in contacting me about your animal joining my flock, please contact my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a fully non-profit organization we appreciate any one time or recurring support you may be able to provide. See donation page to provide a donation via PayPal with options available. We are always in need of blankets (in any condition) for bedding. You may also wish to make a donation in honor of one of your own departed babies and I will place photos of your baby on our In Memorium page as a reminder that all our children play together on the other side.
Our animals bless (and count!) on your generosity!
