Rooterville Animal Sanctuary was inspired by farm animals in need, like Stella, and founded on a singular principle: Compassion. We believe that true happiness, a better world, and recognition of our religious ideals require compassion and mercy for animals, our fellow people, the world we need to live in, and, most importantly, ourselves!

Our majestic Rooterville Sanctuary is home to over 400 rescued farm animals, each of whom came from harrowing backgrounds and narrowly escaped the lives of torment then slaughter that are so common to many farm animals today. Their stories are stories of abuse, neglect, abandonment, cruelty…and then – a second chance.

Rooterville was founded by Elaine West in 2004 to care for the many unwanted, abandoned and abused pot-bellied pigs in need of a safe and loving home. Unfortunately, most animal control agencies or Humane Societies will not take in unwanted pet pigs, so many of these former pets end up meeting a gruesome fate simply because no one is there to help. Since our humble beginnings, Rooterville A Sanctuary has grown from 5 to over 30-acres and provides rescue, care, and a permanent home for hundreds of rescued farm animals of all types.

Personal

I have spent my adult life and given all of my time and money working to help animals in need and to encourage people to make kinder choices.
