MEET THE ANIMALS

We have over 150 rescue farmed animals at the sanctuary saved from cases of severe abuse, neglect or abandonment. Below are just a few of the rescue residents that live at Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary, some are available to sponsor.

Our animal sponsorships cost A$75.00 and are an affordable way to help us cover the costs of the rescued animals' care. Animal sponsorships are perfect for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and Christmas. You or your chosen recipient will receive a beautiful, personalised photo card of the animal you select. The cards will be mailed within five workings days from receipt of order. Please note our multiple sponsorships are symbolic, and the funds go towards the feed and care of all the animal residents and are not earmarked to that specific animal. You are one of many sponsors for animals selected under our multiple sponsorship programme.
