Honey Bear the pig, living in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn California

Honey Bear was found wandering on the street about an hour north of us and then picked up by animal control. He was at least 200 pounds underweight, had multiple open wounds, deep scars, and was frantic. The shelter described him as being very gentle and kind, and said he had a piggy grunt that was more like a purr.When we went to bring Honey Bear home, he happily walked onto our trailer, his blind faith taking our breath away.

When we opened the trailer at The Gentle Barn, he immediately investigated the piggy pool, had his first dip, and started rooting in the mud. He found his bowl full of clean water and drank until he was satiated. He made himself at home in his own room, digging a soft bed in the hay and then lied down for a belly rub.

When it was dinner time, he didn’t have to wonder when or if food was coming, but instead was served a big warm porridge topped with organic fruits and veggies, filling his belly and his heart. Now, Honey Bear rests assured that all of his needs will be met and he truly appreciates it so much. He sleeps and dreams, usually accompanied by chickens sitting on him. On sunny days, he lounges in the pool for hours. He calmly waits for dinner, no longer desperate or starving. He takes none of it for granted.

As he’s gotten older he’s developed some mobility issues, so do everything we can to keep him mobile and comfortable. Your donations help us provide him with weekly acupuncture therapy, massage therapy, Sun Chlorella USA, Puremedy, Inc and plenty of CBD. Because of your generosity, Honey Bear is able to explore the barnyard and go for his daily dip in the pool as a happy boy.
