Meet Rocky
from CT Rescue

Rocky is a seven year old neutered male who lives in the sanctuary herd, in an enormous 25'x3' cage. Rocky came to the rescue three years ago. He had been a single piggy all of his life, and on top of this, his family lost interest in him.

Rocky is a real character with a mind of his own! He was adopted out three times to excellent homes with friendly buddies over a one year period. Each time he went to his new home he stopped eating. He was checked out thoroughly by different vets, but no medical issues were found.

After the third time this happened, The Critter Connection decided to keep Rocky in the rescue as a sanctuary pig, so he was neutered. He lives in the sanctuary herd with twelve other old-timers, and is the boss of them all.

Our fundraising goal for Rocky is $360, enough for a three month supply of veggies, pellets, carefresh, and hay.

The Critter Connection is especially in need of this funding, as they are going through a financial crisis. Their garage collapsed from the weight of the snow earlier this year, meaning they lost all of their surplus rescue supplies, bedding, hay, extra cages, and many personal items. The homeowner's insurance covered the personal items, but not the rescue's items. The Critter Connection is working on rebuilding their building and supplies. Any extra help we can offer them during this time is much appreciated.
