Located in Williamsburg, Virgina, a huge part of their mission is providing a happily-ever-after home to the animals most abused by human society. While their name refers to their life with pigs, the sanctuary is a home to animals of all species such as calves, chickens, turkeys, dogs a rabbit.

Their vision as a a 501© (3) non-profit organization is to be a leader and partner in ensuring that communities’ open spaces and forest patches are considered priority assets in the growth and redevelopment of Baltimore. It is essential to retain existing natural spaces that have ecological value and biodiversity.

All of the “dimes” will be tallied and donations will made to the charities thanks to your generosity! Beginning February 1, 2021 we will collect for three new organizations. It’s completely up to you whether you’d like to keep your reusable bag refund or donate it to charity.

Be on the lookout for our charity collection bins, and think about giving back!
