About Carroll's Animal Sanctuary and Rescue
Once the word got out that we had a large farm property and that we kept potbelly pigs as pets, the calls started coming in! We heard from so many people who no longer wanted their pet pigs that we are now home to 69 pigs and counting.
That year we also rescued a senior dog named Dash who was 11 years old and had been at a shelter for months. Because of his age, nobody was interested in adopting him. It was harrowing to discover that loving animals are often cast aside due to issues like their age, a disability, or the need for expensive vet care. Dash has been with us for almost 4 years now and is thriving with the love and care he gets every single day.
A true calling
Our goal is to provide a forever home to animals who are senior, have special needs, or are hard to adopt, as they are the ones who struggle to find a safe place to go when they are no longer wanted. We provide the animals with unconditional love, quality food, all the vet care they need, and any rehabilitation they might require.
Many of the animals come to us with fear of humans, anxiety, physical disabilities, or signs of neglect. Our job is to help them trust and learn to love again, while supporting their recovery from or adjustment to whatever physical issues they may have.
Our mission in action
We gave him the proper vet care, had him neutered and vaccinated, and worked with him for more than six months to help him trust humans again. He is now thriving in our care and enjoying his life with his large group of potbelly pig friends.
