Get Involved and Help Support Rooterville Animal Sanctuary
Support Our Pet Food Pantry!
We are starting a pet pantry to help keep pets in their homes. Choose 1 bag for $10 or 2 bags and a box/bag treats for $25. We'll be stocking food for cats, dogs, and pet pigs to start. If you'd like to donate more, just go to our donate page and make a note in the comments that your gift is for the pet pantry and we'll make sure that is where it will be applied.
Thanks SO much for being so kind and helping animals in need!
HELP SAVE LIVES BY BECOMING

Rooterville’s members are the lifeline of the sanctuary. When you become a member of Rooterville, you contribute to the daily care of hundreds of farm animals.

The Rooterville Rescue Memberships
Starting at just $15 a month, Rooterville Rescue members gain unlimited access to the sanctuary, exclusive updates and savings at our store, The Pink Pigs, where every dollar you spend helps rescued animals!
BE A FRIEND TO A SPECIFIC RESCUED ANIMAL BY "ADOPTING" THEM AND GIVING THEM A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE!
Rooterville is home to hundreds of animals — from cats and dogs to cows and chickens. Oh, and pigs, of course! We need your help to give these animals the best possible life. We have some terrific opportunities for you to help out, even ways that cost you nothing and you can even earn great Rooterville swag merch! Helping animals has never been easier!
While we get all of the details for our new reward program hammered out, here are some awesome programs that we have in place NOW for you to take advantage of!
With Rooterville’s Adopt A Rescued Animal program, you can symbolically adopt an animal and help us with all of their necessities — food, shelter, and health care. You choose what kind of animal you would like to sponsor and we will match you up with a Rooterville resident. If you want to adopt a specific animal, just let us know! Every month our amazing staff will send you an update on your animal, this is PRICELESS! No other sanctuary gives you this level of service when you become a sponsor! You'll be thrilled with the adorable video update of your new family member!
All adoptions come with:
✔ An adoption certificate
✔ A color photograph of your animal(s)
✔ A tour of Rooterville to come and meet your animal
✔ Monthly updates on how your animal is doing, as staff time allows. If we're really busy, you might have to ask us!
Adoptions start at $15 per month:
$15 per month for a chicken
$25 per month, your choice to sponsor one of the following:
1 turkey or 1 duck
$50 per month, your choice to sponsor one of the following:
1 piggy or 1 dog & 1 cat
$100 per month, your choice to sponsor one of the following:
1 cow or 1 piggy & 1 turkey & duck.
If you choose a Rooterville Rescue Adoption, we will match you with 2 pigs, 2 chickens/roosters, and 1 cow or goat. We ask that you make a one-year commitment to sponsoring your animal, in monthly donations. If you would prefer to make an annual or quarterly donation, please contact elaine@rooterville.
Are you interested in boosting your resume? Does your class require internship credit? Or, do you just want to make a BIG difference in the lives of animals?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, Rooterville is the right place for you! Rooterville offers a variety of semester-long internship positions and we will create a program that is tailored to your needs. Our internships range from animal care, marketing, grant writing, and so much more!
