Rooterville Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit sanctuary with over 400 rescued animals dedicated to rescuing abused, neglected, and desperate farm animals all over the United States.
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, Rooterville encourages compassion for all animals through education, rescue and activism.
