Cochranton, PA – Farm animals need loving place to call home!

The following 3 animals are at Hog Heaven Rescue Farm in Cochranton, PA. They, along with many other barnyard friends, are looking for new homes.


Xavier is an almost five-year-old alpaca. Alpacas not suited for breeding are neutered and donated to Hog Heaven to generate funds to help the hooved animals. Now, I don’t think Xavier deserves to be treated just as a “donation” and a “fundraiser.” He deserves a loving, spacious home where he’ll be treated like the wonderful animal he is. Alpacas are heard animals, meaning to adopt Xavier you have to either have an alpaca or llama, or adopt another along with Xavier.

Dudley is an adorable and gentle Appaloosa Gelding. He suffers from some loss of sight in his right eye. He also has some fatty growth on his right shoulder. The rescue says neither of thse things affect his ability to be ridden. Dudley needs a good home where perhaps he can retire from giving rides. Please help him live the simple life he deserves.

Tank is a beautiful Quaterhorse who was adopted from Hog Heaven, but his owners now need to return him. Hog Heaven is full at the moment and cannot keep Tank. Tank is looking for a new family to love him. He is suited for an advanced beginner. He really enjoys the trails.

Shelbie is an 11-year-old Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie, Collie mix. She is spayed and weighs 58 lbs. She was owner surrendered because they didn’t have time for her. She was their dog for her entire 11 yrs. She was kept largely outside. Shelbie is housebroken, loves to be by your side, loves to be petted , get along with other dogs. Has no problem living indoors. She lived with cats before and is fine with them. She likes going for walks and this should help with getting off those extra lbs she needs to lose. She is already on a reducing diet to get her into top shape. She would be fine with well behaved children. Better off with children that understand that some dogs need their space. She would have a problem with children climbing on her. She is very gentle. She has a little food aggression in close quarters. Please help make her senior years wonderful! (I know, I cannot understand how anyone could get rid of a dog after 11 years either…)
