Pigs Peace Sanctuary: 27631 56th Ave NW, Stanwood, WA

I can't believe I have wanted to visit the Pigs Peace Sanctuary for nearly 20 years, and then finally, yesterday, my wish came true. And the experience was truly amazing. If you are not yet familiar with the Pigs Peace Sanctuary, I encourage you to learn more about it. We are so lucky to have such a valuable place so nearby Bellingham. Not only does it provide a safe place for rescued animals to recover from trauma and live out their lives in peace and happiness, it also offers humans a place to connect with and learn more about these beautiful, often misunderstood creatures.

 Judy Woods and  the volunteers that help her are doing really incredible work and you cannot help but be moved by the stories of bravery, survival, recovery, and connection that Judy shares with you when you visit the sanctuary. Tour appointments have to be scheduled and approved with Judy in advance, and people are eligible to sign up as volunteers with the sanctuary after attending a tour. My tour experience yesterday was so profound, I am determined to work as hard as I can to overcome my driving anxiety so that I can visit at least once a month and help where needed.

I encourage you to check out their website, learn more about this awesome sanctuary, and consider making a donation of your time, skills, and money to support this valuable place that provides such love and care to so many who would not otherwise have any. Thank you to my wonderful friends who made this life-changing day possible for me (especially you, Molly!), and thank you to Judy and all of the incredible animals at the Pigs Peace Sanctuary. I will see you again very soon!
