Rescue Me ID: 17-08-14-00030Pig (female)

Farm Animal    Age: Baby

Compatibility: Good with Most Animals 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 

    Absolutely great pet! Potty trained and litter box trained. Is a house pet but loves being outdoors as well! Has been around cats and a dog since she was a baby. She doesn't pay much attention to them and they leave her alone too. Very low maintenance pet. She likes being alone and sleeps quite a bit. But will never pass up a belly rub! I unfortunately need to move in to take care of my grandma. And the apartment where we are going we cannot have her with us. I'm determined to find her a loving home! Call with any questions. Her food is very inexpensive, therefore I am willing to help buy her food monthly if needed.

Farm Animal    Age: Baby

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed) 

    12 week old Dominique rooster. Roster was included in an order of hens by mistake. We're not allowed roosters, by city ordinance and I would like to find him a good home. He interacts well with the group of hens that we ordered - his flock. I wish that we could keep him, but have to move him along.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-20-00234Roosters (male)

Farm Animal    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    Helios and Apollo were 'given' to me without my consent. I love them, but cannot keep them. I want to find them good homes where they can live out their lives happily and safely. I will be happy to provide a large bag of food for them a couple of times per year, though they are free rangers, so really do not eat much man-made feed if they have a large grassed area to roam. I do not want them to go to someone one who plans to kill or fight them. They can be separated to go to different homes or taken together if you'd like to keep them in a bachelor pad. The people who dumped them were mean to them, so they aren't the cuddly type, but ... (Read More)they will protect your hens or make good yard guards, they need to live someplace where they can roam their pen/yard during the day with a shelter to protect from the weather and then have a safe enclosed coop at night so predictors do not get them.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Farm Animal in Illinois
    Farm Animals can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Farm animals such as sheep, goats, and pigs are useful additions to working farms. For example, sheep can provide people with milk for cheese and other dietary staples, as well as wool for clothing. Dairy goats are so hardy and such valuable sources of food that providing one for a family living in extreme poverty (through an organization such as Heifer International) can completely alter the existence of that family. Farm animals provide manure for fertilizer to grow healthy vegetables. The sale of dairy, wool, and offspring of farm animals can be a major source of income. Many people think farm animals are cute and picturesque and would like to own one or more. However, caring for these animals is very labor intensive, and unless these animals are part of a working farm, they can become the victims of abuse or neglect.

    Potbellied pigs are an excellent example. Potbellied pigs became popular as house pets in the nineties. However, pigs can weigh over 130 pounds and are not as easy to care for as other household pets. Pigs need to be outside to satisfy their natural instincts to rut. Sadly, many owners of potbellied pigs are not ready for the commitment and challenges of having a pig for a pet, leaving many animals in need of adoption.

    Farm animals are useful sources of fertilizer, food, and clothing. One dairy goat can provide about a ton of milk and two to three kids annually. Sheep cheese, though uncommon in the U.S., is tasty and very popular in other parts of the world. Goat milk, unlike cow milk, contains all of the essential amino acids, making it the only regular source of complete protein for countless traditionally vegetarian populations all over the world. Goat dairy products are easier to digest than cow milk, and may even help to prevent some types of gastrointestinal problems.
