Will ‘Little Beanie Tofu’ and ‘Dolphin’ find their incredible forever home?

by Kathleen Cole | April 14, 2019

When my daughter Madilyn started college I never dreamt that I would soon become the mother of Pigs.

By far, this has been one of the best experiences of my life. I never knew how intelligent, affectionate and amazing pigs were. In fact I had zero knowledge of pigs at all! I now know that they are full of joy and curiosity, tenacity, love and as a bonus, they are also super cute! Taking care of them is my daily meditation. They live their best pig lives digging, napping, snacking and greeting one and all with a tail wag, snort and a smile. Pigs do smile!

Pigs do smile!!

I feel very accomplished, grounded, blessed and extremely fortunate to have raised these beings from just weeks old and now into their 2nd birth year!

I have been fortunate that many friends and family as well have pitched in and have helped support the girls with produce, treats, labor as well as encouragement and enthusiasm.

When I rescued Little Beanie Tofu and Dolphin, my main objective was to prevent them from being slaughtered and then to find them an incredible forever home.

It’s a miracle Lynn, Oscar and their family came into our lives. Beanie and Dolphin have found their forever dream home at JP Animal Farm Animal Sanctuary. I couldn’t be more excited and grateful to them and their enormous hearts! I know that Beanie and Dolphin will live their lives deeply loved, safe, happy and that we will all forever be connected through their journey.

Keep up-to-date for their arrival this summer.

I am Kathleen Cole and I AM so lucky to be the mother of pigs.
