What you'll do

Dottie Ru, Lulu (our baby pig) and our urban farm consist of 2 ducks, 2 cats, 2 small dogs and 1 puppy, 1 260 LB sulcata tortoise and 1 pot bellied pig. All are rescues and extremely friendly. Pigs are known to be very intelligent animals and Dottie Ru is no exception! We supply various treats and guests can feed, communicate and generally get to know what living with a pig is like. We will be hanging out with her in our backyard. There are comfortable chairs to lounge in and tons of treats to give Dottie. If you would like to meet the other animals, that is certainly welcomed and we will bring the others outside to visit (except the cats, they must stay inside). With "mini" pigs gaining so much attention we wanted to open our home to show the true size of a pot bellied pig and bring awareness to all the wonderful pigs that end up in shelters.

I have been in love with pigs my entire life and have worked with many animal rescue organizations as an adult. The very first week we moved to Joshua Tree, I found a rescue pig in need and we fell in love. Dottie was instantly apart of our family and we'd like to welcome you to visit and interact with her to see why pigs are so special. follow them on IG - @AlmostFarm
