Pot Belly Pig Sanctuary Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary

The Happy Rails Farm and Animal Sanctuary houses over 1,300 animals, including pot belly pigs, horses, chickens and goats.

According to Cleveland.com, Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Sunday June 27 from 12:00pm-5:00pm. The Ravenna sanctuary was founded by Annette and Ross Fisher and has taken in over 1,300 farm animals over the last 10 years. The couple, along with about 100 volunteers raise money and care for the animals’ needs; treating injuries, malnutrition and emotional stress. Volunteers also take animals to visit nursing home residents.

The Fishers have rescued animals ranging from pigeons to pot belly pigs and provide each and every one of the rescued critters with plenty of tender love and care. They’ve taken in animals from Scioto County, Brimfield Township, Deerfield Township, Trumbull County, Ross County and just recently rescued eight horses from Orange. They also rehabilitate former Amish plow and buggy horses and teach Amish farmers how to take better care of their horses used for such activities.

This Sunday, tour Happy Trails Farm and Animal Sanctuary for a donation fee of $10 for adults or $5 for children between 6-12 years old. Younger kids are free. Visitors may pet the goats, ponies, chickens, sheep, pot belly pigs and horses that reside on the sanctuary. Happy Trails will also provide free cruelty-free vegan desserts and beverages to guests.
