Introducing our sweet boy Wilbur!!
Wilbur is a Large White which is a British breed of farm hog. He was found walking down the side of a highway by a good samaritan. After he was caught he went to animal control, where his new friend who had originally found him advocated on his behalf for his future. We are so grateful that we were called, a un-castrated farm hog up for public adoption at the local shelter wasnt a good thing. More times than not it doesn’t end well for the pig. So we waited and waited, fighting to get him released to the sanctuary. And after three days we got to pick him up and brought him back to Ojai.
He was checked out by our vet, castrated, and treated for ticks and fleas. He has an old injury that has resulted in the loss of an eye but it doesn’t slow him down. He also received what we believe to be his first official bath, scrubbing away and he leaned into our brushes.
Wilbur will live the rest of his life at the sanctuary. He will be able to root around and sunbath, eat fresh fruit and vegetable and will be loved everyday.
