We are spending $500 to $800 per month on gas right now just for Vet Visits .


  • The cost for gas for the Truck and Van to Cornell and back is over $100; it costs almost $50 for the Suburu.
  • Our Local Avian vet is a hour away and Cornell is 2 hours and 15 min.
  • Our Trip to Virginia for a prosthetic for Ella Bean and our little jelly roll Lilly will be over 300 miles each way.


We don't mind traveling for top notch medical care but that travel comes at a cost. The average cost of a gallon of gas is $3.79 in November 2023 (it was $3.39 in March 2023).


The picture shows what it cost on November 9, 2023 to fill  about 3/4 of a tank in the truck.  We would love your support to help us defray the cost of gas.


Peace , Love & Pigs,



P.S. Please know that this is a donation to the sanctuary so that we can defray our gas costs - no actual gas will be mailed to you. Excess funds (if any) will be used for animal care.

    General Shipping Information 

    We appreciate your patience as our store is run by our volunteers! Our volunteers typically pack orders on Saturdays, and the packages are usually brought to the post office on Monday or Tuesday.  Please know that sanctuary schedules may delay delivery by a week should an emergent need arise.

    Orders that are shipped by media mail, in a poly bag, or in a box will be shipped out via a service known as "Pirate Ship".  You will receive a separate email from that will contain tracking information about 2 days after we have packed your order. 

    Delivery fees include both shipping, handling, and in some cases, insurance fees. We reserve the right to contact you and request additional payment if actual shipping due to size or weight exceeds the amount we have collected for delivery.  

    International Shipping

    Your destination shipping company may charge brokerage fees, additional customs, duties, or taxes.  We cannot calculate those fees, and your courier may contact you for these fees. The purchaser is responsible for all applicable customs and duty fees, brokerage fees, and any country assigned taxes.   Your package is valued at the invoiced purchase price for each item in your order on any applicable customs forms. Items that include the word "donation" are not included in customs forms. 

    We have added international shipping to countries where there is the ability to track the order. If you are interested in shipping to a country that is not currently available, please contact us by email at and we will work with you to see if we are able to supply a solution.

    International shipping will take between 1 to 4 weeks to deliver, depending upon individual carrier practices.  Please see the tracking information that will come from the email address . Your order will go to a central international shipping center via USPS, and then be shipped to your local carrier to deliver.
