About Rooterville A Sanctuary Inc
Rooterville Animal Sanctuary provides a safe and compassionate refuge to hundreds of rescued farm animals. Here at Rooterville, the animals get all of the love and respect they deserve. Founded in 2004, Rooterville is a place where animals can roam freely and enjoy their lives, on 30 beautiful acres in a serene farm-like setting near Melrose, Florida. We currently have over 400 rescued animals calling the sanctuary their home. Our residents, which we kindly refer to as ambassadors, include pot-bellied pigs, farm pigs, cows, turkeys, chickens, goats, horses, and honey bees. We also have beautiful butterfly gardens to nurture the butterfly population.
Healing and Caring for Rescued Animals:
Rooterville was inspired by farm animals in need, like Stella, and founded on a singular principle: Compassion. We believe 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 Sanctuary is dedicated to rescuing abused, neglected, and desperate farm animals all over the United States. Some we are able to bring to our growing sanctuary. Some we are able to save through helping spread the word about what each of us can do to help.
Our vision is a world free of cruelty, where compassion and kindness form the foundation of how each of us treats one another.
After rescuing so many unwanted animals and experiencing the deplorable conditions found in “factory farms,” we at Rooterville have adopted a way of life that encourages people to live a compassionate lifestyle by choosing a healthy, plant-based diet.
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.
