We Are A Registered Charity Now!!

We are officially a Registered Charity as of August 27, 2019 and got a confirmation email yesterday from our amazing lawyer Nick Wright.

Now we can issue tax receipts as well as be able to apply for grants that are only available to Registered Charities.

Thank you for everyone who’ve supported us from the start, and who continue to support us going forward! #teameffort

Vivian, Felix, Greta, and Marigold.

We got contacted by Michelle from Home For Hooves about 4 black pot belly pigs, in a dire situation on Vancouver Island. We helped finding them a home at Little OinkBank Pig Sanctuary and assisted in transportation, from Victoria, BC area back to Aldergrove, BC to their safe forever home. This was a big team effort with so many people involved, including The Farm on and SPCA on Vancouver Island. A big thank you too to the two amazing P.E.A.C.E. volunteers who came along to help, Zoe and Nicola, as well as of course Little OinkBank for giving them a safe forever home.


Morky

This is Morky from Island Pacifica Animal Sanctuary on Denman Island. Cheryl Henkelman has been rescuing animals for 40 years and this year started a life long dream of having a sanctuary.

This is how Morky and Cheryl’s story started. Michelle from A Home For Hooves contacted us in April of this year about an abuse case and emergency rescue of 3 pot belly pigs on Vancouver Island. It was a hard search but at the end Cheryl luckily could give them a forever home, which we are forever grateful for!

At the end Cheryl could take care of the transport so we said we’d in return help out by paying for Morky’s neuter. As she is remote with no local vet specialized in pig neuters, which is a high risk operation, she had to get a mobile vet to take a ferry to her. The bill came to over $600 which we can happily say, with all the recent donations, apparel sales and the support on Patreon, we were able to fully pay off for her last week!


Rest In Peace Billy

Sadly we had to say goodbye to Billy earlier this week. Her body was too broken, and now our hearts are shattered.

Zoe Peled said it the best: “We are so lucky to find them and have time with them; but we also hold the burden of losing them. We accept both.”

Billy’s Story.

GRANTS

We’ve been making a list and checking it twice… a list of GRANTS!

Especially starting out, or helping with projects at the sanctuary, grants can be very helpful. They do take a lot of work to apply for, but worth the effort if it can help with build infrastructure at sanctuaries to paying for a lawyer to help them get charity status.

So go see what we’ve compiled, and if you know of any more let us know! Sharing is caring, as they say!

Prince

We are so grateful, yet again, to Harbour Air for their help! Prince was flown in from Vancouver Island and now calls Little OinkBank Pig Sanctuary his forever home.
