Ava & Douglas came to Campfire Critters in June 2018 from a local family who could no longer care for them. Their ages and breeds are unknown. They are interested in people, but had little handling prior to living with us. These two cuties have made a lot of progress since joining us and have become very friendly and playful.
Gordan was found roaming the streets of north Gloucester and picked up by Gloucester Animal Control. After months in their care, the county deemed him "grumpy" and "unfriendly" so they chose to euthanize him. Thankfully, our friends at Animal Control asked us if we could give him a home instead. They dropped Gordan off to us in July of 2019. Since then he has bonded with Ava and Doug and has become very sweet. He simply needed someone to give him a chance and thats what Campfire Critters is here for!
Winston joined us on April 18, 2020 from Isle of Wight Animal Shelter. Winston is around 2 years old and was bounced between homes his whole life. He ended up in the shelter because of "behavior issues" which is something we specialize in here at Campfire Critters so we offered to take him. Although we have not had much time with him yet, it would seem that he was simply misunderstood. So far, he has proven to be very sweet and calm. He will join the other three pigs when he is ready.
This is our newest mini pig rescue, Shakira. She came to us on May 31, 2020. This was also the day she was scheduled to be killed by Animal Control because she was considered a "public safety problem". We are so thankful we were given the chance to rescue her and even more so since she was pregnant. Shakira gave birth on August 8th and we now have 7 piglets to care for as well. Although she still has a long way to go, Shakira is trusting us more and more every day. And she is the best momma to the cutest babies!
