• Herbert found peace at Rooterville Animal Sanctuary.

    Herbert was orphaned and on the verge of death, but a series of miraculous events brought him home to Rooterville!

    Herbert the feral pig on a lush green field.

    Herbert was rescued as a tiny five-pound feral piglet when he was found wandering the riding trails of a small town in Florida. Likely orphaned when his mother was shot by a hunter, tiny Herbert was covered with over 200 ticks, riddled with parasites, and desperately dehydrated. He was on the verge of death.

    Herbert’s rescuers rushed him to the vet where intense antibiotic and anti-parasitic treatments saved his precious young life.  That night, a mishap with a hot lamp caused a fire and that his rescuers thought killed him. Thankfully, Herbert survived his second brush with death!

    After his rescuers realized their laundry room was no place to raise a pig, they found him a loving home at Rooterville. Now, this miracle piggy is very happy to live out his life playing and frolicking with his friends at Rooterville Animal Sanctuary
