We are so happy for McKayla, Billie, Frost and Beckham because they have all been adopted together! McKayla came to Happy Trails last year with a horrible case of hoof rot so bad she couldn't walk. Even after treatment, she had a pronounced limp that lasted quite a few months. She is now happily running and playing with the boys while Billie keeps an ever so watchful eye on them. ...

A huge thank you to employees at Dominion Energy who donated their time and talents to tackle a big project at the sanctuary. Friends were made as we all worked together to paint the exterior of our gift shop and boy does it look beautiful! We are so grateful for all their help!
Does your company promote volunteerism in your community? We would love to have the help! Complete our group volunteer application to schedule your group day today!
I am so amazed on how the years have passed and this place looks so beautiful with all your hard work. So happy for the animals too. I have been following for many years and will donate again when I am able too. God Bless you all.
Wish I could have been there with my Dominion Energy team. Maybe next year 😀
We received a new piggie named Charlotte recently. She came from Cincinnati due to a neglect case - her hooves were horribly overgrown and crossing over, her eyes are ulcered and entropic and she is overweight for her size and age. Like most pigs we get she was let down by mankind and left in a horribly uncomfortable state. Two of her hooves broke during her ride to the sanctuary thus exposing the sensitive quick. She is a sweet and tolerant girl despite what she's going through. Our care coordinator has been able to take a few inches off of her feet but they still have a ways to go. At least she won't be tripping on them every step she takes. Charlotte's eye folds were cleaned removing the dead skin and lashes that had accumulated in her eye sockets. her face was wiped of all the gunk that covered her natural pig beauty.
Also, like most cases she was not fed a proper diet. She received dog food and table scraps. She is slowly adjusting to her new diet so she can become happy and healthy. Charlotte will be seen in the upcoming week by our vet after she has some time to decompress. ... See MoreSee Less
Des, a great thoroughbred who is looking for his forever home trail rides! We took the opportunity to trail ride Des last week and he was great. He carried a fairly new rider through the trails and although he does need some fine tuning, he did well! Find more information about Des at: happytrailsfarm.org/des/... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations Marbles!! Marbles came to us in 2016 from a cock fighting raid in Mahoning County. He recently found his forever home along with TEN hens, one of which is a hen that was rescued from an overturned semi in Stark County. They are living the life and are quite happy! ...
