Hog Haven Farm is a recognized 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization in Colorado. Located on the eastern plains, about 55 miles east of Denver, our mission is to provide a safe, happy home for potbelly pigs and commercial pigs that are rescued from situations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
Our mission is to provide a safe environment for potbelly pigs and other livestock that are rescued from situations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. HHF strives to promote compassion for all animals, and to allow livestock animals to live happy lives without fear and suffering. We are currently home to more than 95 pigs, as well as other rescued animals, totaling more than 100 animals in our care.
Hog Haven Farm aims to:
• Promote potbelly pigs as the third recognized domesticated animal and pet by providing education and resources to the general public
• Provide a safe place for rescued pigs to call home; a place for rehabilitation of all pigs; and a welcoming environment for the community to become better acquainted with animals associated with food
• Educate the community about potbelly pigs as creatures and pets
• Educate the community about farm animals through volunteer programs, organization visits to the farm (schools, etc.), and allow community to work directly with the animals to learn more about them
• Educate the community about sustainable food options; farm animals are more than dinner, and educational programs are paramount in creating change within the food industry
• Create outreach program for children with autism (research strongly suggests that animals increase positive social behaviors with children that have ASD)
• Lobby for certain counties (i.e. Aurora, Castle Rock) to amend zoning restrictions on potbelly pigs; currently they are considered livestock and not allowed. Homeowners may amend individual zoning on their home, but process is difficult and doesn’t yield positive results.
