The owners and volunteers of Shaw Pit Bull Rescue have noticed an increasing need over the years for fosters or rescues of pot-bellied pigs. It is estimated that about 90% of sold pet pigs end up being surrendered to shelters and sanctuaries, mostly due to uneducated or unprepared owners.
Kenneth Shaw recently acquired a much larger piece of land, and since we will have the separate space, we have decided to EXPAND THE VISION by raising funds to open a pot-bellied pig sanctuary - Porkchop's Phat Farm - on the opposite end of the land.
Porkchop's Phat Farm is a sister-rescue to Shaw PBR; however, they are two separate entities; two separate accounts. Any donations to Shaw PBR will be used for the dogs; and any donations to PCPF will be used for the piggies. You can visit "Where is the Money Going" on our Shaw PBR website; or "Money Matters" to see what monies are coming in or going out of either rescue...total transparency .
Shaw PBR will also be expanding, of course; and the addition of a public dog park and large walking path around the entire property are also in the plans.
No physical interaction between the two rescues will ever be permitted.
We will keep you all updated on our progress. As of right now, we are only in the very beginning stages of planning and fundraising, but our dream will eventually become a reality.
We appreciate you all!!

Our goal is to provide a safe haven for abandoned or unwanted pot belly pigs and provide them with the medical attention they need, as well as the love and attention they deserve.
We will participate in fundraising to provide veterinary treatment, spay/neuter, food and shelter; as well as foster responsible pot belly pig ownership through education and adoption.
