These humans care so deeply for the animals they rescue. They give the best care possible ND provide a wonderful, natural environment for them. I run a cat rescue, and I know the toll it takes. I am a monthly supporter of Life With Pigs. They definitely deserve this honor.

I first learned about Life With Pigs on the occasion of Ryan and Mallory’s wedding and I was absolutely enchanted by all of the animal attendants and the love and happy life they provide for them. I love their promotion of a vegan diet and I enjoy seeing the daily life of these lovely creatures and their wonderful human caretakers.

Life With Pigs is more of a home than a non-profit farm sanctuary. They don’t just do functions or events on the weekends or during certain times, they live it! 24/7/365. The love and care that they give to their two and four-legged furry and fluffy family members is profound. You comprehend this the first time you meet them. They see all of the farm residents as their family unit and show them all the love and respect befitting of such. They work tirelessly to make sure that the public sees this affectionate interaction by posting YouTube videos and other social media content, not to get “likes” but to show that no matter the species, everyone and everything is deserving of compassion and respect. They provide that to the nth degree. All one has to do is stop by for a visit and meet both Ryan and Mallory and see the familial bond they share with their “children”. They go above-and-beyond to bring awareness to the fact that animals all animals, both big, like Jovial Jenna the 1500 lbs. lawn puppy to the small, Wonderful Wish, the super-sweet disabled chicken to everyone in between, are loving creatures that have souls and are deserving of all the hugs, kisses and treats as you would give anyone in your household. All are rescued and the rewards are resounding! From a parrot to three pigs, adorable doggies to serene sheep to one feisty rooster named Billy and the King of the Roost Quincy the turkey, all are doted on, spoiled and the best thing you will ever see in a non-profit organization! http://www.lifewithpigs.com @lifewithpigsfarmsanctuary https://www.facebook.com/lifewithpigs

This place is amazing! It’s a definite bucket list place to visit! They care for their animals and fight to give them lives they deserve but otherwise would never have experienced! They’re still fighting for Sophie, who was taken away from them by a horrible farmer! God bless this place always!

An amazing charity! They help so many animals live fulfilling lives that they wouldn't have had otherwise. The dedication to these animals and their mission is sincere and wonderful.

I am the mother of Ryan Phillips who loves this very special sancuary with all his heart. His joy in life is giving these animals, who would be dead by now, a loving, caring forever home. Not only does he and his family share their daily lives they literally share their own home. I spent some time there and enjoyed seeing my grandchildren share with visitors how to care for animals and that they have feelings and should not be treated the way many people and farms do. Take the time to visit this incredible Sanctuary with your family and don't be surprised you leave with a new insight into the need for animal awareness and what is really being done to them.

This place is beautiful and the animals are so sweet. They all have such wonderful and unique personalities. I love getting to see the friendship between Jenna and Maisie and the family bond between the pigs. All animals deserve to get to know this kind of love.

Life With Pigs is a little piece of heaven for the animals they have rescued and for their visitors. I really enjoy volunteering and spending time with the animals (especially Millie and Maisie lol). All of the animals have their unique and Loving personalities. It is amazing to see them live the lives they deserve. Thank you for all that you do Ryan and Mallory

I’ve visited Life with Pigs on multiple occasions and I can’t say enough about the great work Ryan and Mallory do. They provide such a loving home for so many animals, and do an excellent job of educating the public about animal rights issues. It’s very obvious they’ve put their hearts and souls into the sanctuary, and I’m so thankful that there are people like them out there. They’re the best!

This sanctuary is a wonderful place! I have visited multiple times now, and each time, I am warmly welcomed by both the humans and the animals. It’s clear to anyone how much Ryan and Mallory love their animals - they are all so happy and healthy. They will work with you anytime to arrange a visit, and I encourage anyone to go who would like to see how all farm animals should live

I have followed Ryan Phillips from the time he brought Pumpkin and Charlotte home to his condo, shortly followed by my favorite little pig Millie. I was there "virtually" when Ryan found the property and moved to what is now the Life With Pigs farm animal sanctuary. I followed the heartbreaking story of Sophie, the rescued calf they were forced to relinquish to an abusive owner, and have watched Jenna the Calf Who Lived grow from a gangly little calf to a 1,000 lb diva of a cow, who waits by the window patiently for her dad to come outside and play.

Although I've never met Ryan and Mallory in real life, their compassion and kindness is palpable through the posts they make and the images and video that they post. I love these guys! It is one of my greatest wishes that one day I'll meet Millie and Jenna, Maisie and the rest of the fur kids at Life With Pigs!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Life With Pigs farm animal sanctuary. Ryan and Mallory are two of the most genuine people you could meet. To say they have a passion for helping animals, ALL animals, is an understatement. They are open and informative, always sharing photos, videos and stories about life at the sanctuary. So thankful for them. Can’t wait to visit again!

Life With Pigs Farm Animal Sanctuary is my happy place! One truly hasn’t lived until they’ve met Jenna the Calf Who Lived and experiences being loved by a 1000 pound puppy. And all the animals here are so well loved and cared for that they are always happy to meet new people because they have such a positive experience with people. They truly are living out their happily ever afters in the magical paradise. Where else can you find a cow who demands hugs and carrots out the kitchen window and three pigs who sleep on their private loft bed? And where a rabbit makes her way between her dog pals on the couch and pigs on the loft bed. Best life ever? No! It’s even better than that!

My family and I visited Life with Pigs sanctuary this year and were impressed with how happy and healthy the animals are. The animals, many of whom are victims of animal agriculture or pet trade industries, are now safe and living their best lives after being rescued by Life with Pigs. We saw Ryan and Mallory treat each pig, cow, chicken, turkey, dog, etc., with love, respect, and appreciation for their individuality. Ryan and Mallory are imbued with uncommon integrity and a passion for making the world a better place for all its inhabitants, regardless of species.
