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 ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-08-00255Rooster (male)

Farm Animal    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Animals 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed) 

    His name is Ceasar, and he's one year old. He is a great protector of the flock and he's very good at spotting predators. Unfortunately, I currently have too many roosters in my coop and I have to find him a good home. He does get a little defensive if you're around the hens but it's nothing to worry about. However, he does not like small children, and I would not recommend having them around him.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-14-00568Pot Bellied Pig (female)

Farm Animal    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Stella she is a 4.5 years old pot-bellied pig. She has actually been put on a diet since this pic and has been losing weight. She takes awhile to warm up to people but loves her ears and belly scratched. She does not care for dogs, but was always good with our chickens and ducks. We recently lost the second income in our home and can no longer afford her, which makes us very sad. She is a pet not food and must go to a great home!

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.
