Celebrating 6 years of Arthur's Acres!

A Brief Word from Todd...

Arthur's Acres Animal Sanctuary is 6 years old and I cannot believe how much we’ve all done together! 

Six years ago, I was considering starting a sanctuary. I decided to look around at property and came to this land in Parksville. I was absolutely sure this was not the place for me—too much of a mess. And it had been a backyard butcher of all things. But I heard there were still animals onsite so I had to check it out.


And then I met Arthur. The last pig left on the farm, abandoned and left to die. 


Arthur looked at me, I looked at him and everything changed. 


Arthur’s Acres was born. 


Okay, fast forward through a lot of work, heartbreak, joy, peace, mud, snow, sun, moon, pigs starting new lives, humans coming together, and love. Always love. 


It's 6 years and we did it together. So let’s come together--onsite and virtual around the world--and celebrate what we’ve accomplished together, plus all of the magic and miracles yet to come. 

Peace, Love, & Pigs,

Todd Friedman
Founder, Arthur's Acres Animal Sanctuary
