Meeko

Meeko was sold as a "micro pig" to his original family. Micro or teacup pigs are not real and breeders tell the buyers to keep the pigs on a strict diet. This special diet actually starves the pig and stunts his growth. So poor Meeko came to us very underweight. Luckily he came from a family who loves him & knew he needed more than they could provide. Meek-man is a sweet, goofy, laid-back guy, until he thinks he needs food or finds a bar stools to knock over. But we wouldn't have him any other way!

Marge

Poor Marge was living outside with nothing but a wooden box to call her own. Her family had 7 kids with another on the way & 2 dogs. It seems like Marge was forgotten. We are not sure what she was being fed, but it wasn't a proper piggy diet. Her skin was in horrible shape. And I mean horrible. We aren't really sure what Marge went through before she got here, but what we do know is that she is a sweet and sassy independent woman. She loves her family fiercely and often takes the babies under her wing.

Gus

Gus was born in a factory farm. He had just been weaned from his mom & packed into a transport truck with his brothers & sisters when he jumped for his life! Gus was found running down the interstate when Animal Control picked him up and called us. Thankfully we were able to take Gus in and give him a forever home at Kanda! Now Gus will be able to live his life however he pleases, just like every pig should!

Cheesecake

Cheesecake was the first pig pulled during the Indy Pig Rescue mission. She was living in a fully enclosed metal livestock trailer with no fresh air, clean water, or sanitary place to use the bathroom. Cheesecake was in respiratory distress and rushed to Purdue. Cheesecake is working on losing weight, but otherwise she is now a happy healthy, sweet little piggy! She loves to eat veggies and talk to her neighbors, Meeko, Marge, & Gus!

Charlotte

Charlotte was another pig from the Indy Pig Rescue mission. There were almost 70 pigs living in the most horrible conditions, because of a hoarder. They were chest deep in mud and their own filth. They had no shelter, no clean water, no nutritious food. Many died in these horrible conditions before we could get to them, or even knew they were there. But Charlotte has a few medical issues because of the conditions she was forced to live in. So she will be spending her life in luxury at Kanda!

Andi

Andi was another pig from the Indy Pig Rescue mission. ​Many of the pigs were adopted out to forever homes or split between the sanctuaries that made up the Indy Pig Rescue group. However Andi is Charlotte's best friend and protector. We knew we could not rehome Andi and take her away from Charlotte. We want both of them to live their best life. So Andi will also get to call Kanda her forever home!

Brenda

Brenda was another Indy Pig Rescue pig who was rescued from extreme cruelty and neglect. Brenda was one of the only pigs on the property who didn't have any friends or family in her pen with her. Since her rescue, Brenda has become one of the sweetest pigs. She never stops talking and will drop everything to greet you. She also sings when you itch just the right spot on her back!​

Linda

Linda was also rescued during the Indy Pig Rescue mission. Linda and Karen are a very bonded pair. They lived together before they were saved and are still inseparable. Linda took a minute to warm up to us, but since she has she absolutely loves attention! Linda also loves eating grass and taking long naps curled up with her sisters. 

Karen

Karen is the third "big girl" to call Kanda home after the Indy Pig Rescue mission. We knew it would be difficult and scary to adopt out the big pigs, so we were more than happy to make room for Karen and her sisters! Karen was the last of the 3 to allow us to touch her. She has since learned that belly rubs are amazing, but is still a little jumpy. We are so proud of her and how much she trusts us already in such little time, especially after all they have been through.

RJ

RJ was a 4H "project" who stole the hearts of his owners and they couldn't imagine sending him to slaughter. This spring RJ's owner passed away. The family knew they couldn't care for him but also wanted him to live out the rest of his days peacefully. They contacted us and we brought him home to Kanda! RJ was 10 years old and extremely overweight when he came to Kanda. He was being fed a horrible diet and honestly we were shocked he was alive. RJ has since adopted a healthy diet and a love for life!

"The Fam"

Dali, her 8 babies,​ and 8 other pigs were going to be killed that night if they didn't find a new home. The home owners had 3 pigs and had to temporarily move. They rented their house and the tenants agreed to take care of the pigs, including neutering the boys. The home owners were home for a holiday and found way more than 3 pigs, and the tenants said they were out of food & just planning on shooting them that night. Thankfully the owners contacted us. Mama Dali was also pregnant with 10 babies, who she gave birth to at Kanda.

Tru

Sweet baby Tru was found running down the road by a kind woman who took her in and contacted us. Tru somehow escaped a factory farm. She was sick, in extreme respiratory distress, suffered multiple broken ribs and injuries. Tru is now healing at her forever home, Kanda, where she will never have to worry about being treated with anything but kindness. We are hopeful for Tru's recovery and cannot wait to watch her grow and thrive at Kanda!

Tilley

Tiny Tilley jumped off a transport truck at just a few weeks old. She knew that truck was not her destiny. We think she survived alone for a few days before finding a kind family to help her. The kind family reached out to Kanda and we knew we just had to help baby Tilley. She is now thriving at her forever home with Kanda. Shes spunky and silly, always keeping us on our toes!

Bruno

Bruno was brought into this world as a 4H "project" and destined for slaughter when the year was over. Luckily Bruno charmed his way into his human's hearts and they spared his life! After a year with Bruno, his family realized they could not provide the best life for Bruno, including friends for this social piggy! We agreed that we could take Bruno and provide a happy life filled with friends and love. Bruno is a social and goofy pig, he's happiest when we are laughing with him!

Mowgli

Mowgli, along with 9 other family members, was rescued from a horrible neglect situation. His family was being used to make money (breeding) yet left without proper shelter, feed, or even clean water. They lived in tiny make-shift pens and the "lucky ones"only had a tarp to sleep under. No one was fixed and most were terrified of humans. Mowgli instantly bonded strongly with Andrew, so he is officially a permanent resident at Kanda!

Micky

Micky, along with his brothers, was dumped at a shelter because he was born a rooster and was deemed "useless" by his family. Roosters obviously can't produce eggs so they are considered a byproduct of the egg industry. Davy and his brothers now get to live their lives together in a bachelor flock, where they don't have to worry about producing anything for humans!

Millie

Millie chicken has the spunkiest personality of any chicken we have met! She has some medical issues and has to live in the house, but that doesn't stop her from living her best spunky life! Millie loves to boss around the kitten, jump in the rabbit cages, & steal treats from the dog!​ Millie might seem like a wild woman, but she also knows how to relax. She loves to sit on the couch with us and scroll through Facebook or watch TV. She's also very fond of the cat tower!

Steeve

Steeve was found in the middle of the road one day when Kate was on a feed run. A car had clipped his ear and tail. He also had a mysterious patch of missing fur. Steeve was incredibly lucky that was the extent of his injuries. He is now a happy playful kitten and will get to call Kanda his forever home!

Luna

Luna was found wandering a neighborhood after being dumped by her owners. Often bunnies are dumped when their owners realize they are more work than just feeding & watering them. Lucky for Luna a sweet couple spotted her and brought her inside. They contacted us and we were able to give Luna her forever home. Luna is an adorably high energy girl who already loves Keef, our dog. Soon we will see if she will bond with Philip or Daphne!

Daphne

Daphne aka Little Bean has been in Kate & Andrew's care since 2012. She was liberated from a pet store before we learned that is actually not helpful. Daphne is a sweet and shy little girl who loves to give kisses while we scratch her back. 

Keef

Keef was pulled off a Craigslist add when she was just a few weeks old. They were giving her away or taking her to the local pound. We knew we needed a fluffy butt in our lives and decided to welcome Keef home. She has now been with us for 10 years!
