DEAN FARM TRUST

PIGGY PADDOCK APPEAL

We are appealing for funds to fence a new area for our pigs – Giving our residents enough space so they can express natural behaviours, run, play and sleep is really important to us at the sanctuary.

Pigs are very intelligent and highly sociable animals and since we have been rescuing them they have shown us they like to spend their time foraging and rooting, making nests out of twigs and old grass where they will sleep in the warm nights.

In the summer months they wallow in mud to keep themselves cool and to help keep any parasites away by getting them rubbed off as they roll around in the muddy water.

Our pigs like to rest under the trees and use stumps as scratching posts.

We also know from poo picking and our paddock checks that our piggies have a designated area for for going to the toilet.

PIGGY PADDOCK APPEAL

PLEASE PLEDGE A METRE

We are very lucky to have a beautiful two acre area of mixed woods and pasture which would be ideal for our little pigs to live in. It will provide stimulation, rooting and fibre, a natural wet area for wallowing and lots of trees for shade.

We just need to fence it. The total cost to clear the old broken fencing and re-fence with posts, stock and wire is £2,208.00.

This is 230 metres at £9.60.

Please pledge a metre and share our appeal.

Our existing piggy areas can then be rested and ready for us to use again in 12 months.

Our target is four weeks and the work to be carried out on the 1st March. Please help if you can.
