Hearts On Noses A Registered Charity since 2001
2023 Holiday Fundraiser
Join the Hearts on Noses Saturday Team
Hearts On Noses Sanctuary is looking for help on Saturdays such as doing waters for the animals here. A little scrubbing, moving the hose to position and fill to the top. Petting pigs, kissing pigs and singing to pigs is well received, dancing not so much. Let us know if you want to join the team!! Even if you can only come twice a month, the pigs really need your help here and the drive out here is beautiful. The areas is littered with lakes and set on a rural acreage guarded by majestic evergreens . Breath in the fresh air with a variety of squirrels and birds who join the pigs at our bird seed tree. Over the years dedicated volunteers have driven from West Vancouver to Chilliwack to help care for the pigs. Totally worth it as we make the worst coffee anywhere and there is plenty of space to keep our social distancing intact !! Please note this is a work day, we are not open for tours or for that one time experience but Summer is around the corner and hope to see you then.

Located in Mission, BC, Hearts on Noses (HONs) was established in 1999 as a sanctuary for potbellied pigs. "Mini pigs" were a popular pet in the 1980s, and continue to be bred and sold as companion animals today. However, many purchasers are ill prepared or misinformed about the adult size, behaviors, and needs of potbellied pigs, and fail to carry through with a lifetime commitment. In other cases, these pigs fall into the hands of abusers where they suffer cruelty and neglect.
The sanctuary, inspired by Willy, now provides a home to various breeds of pigs including Pot Bellied Pigs, Guinea Hogs, Heritage Pigs, a Piney Rooter and a Tamworth. Any and all these breeds of pigs are currently farmed all over the world for both meat and medical research. Together we will save as many as we can.
The sanctuary is a place where these animals have found refuge from the harsh world that sees them as little more than pieces of property. Unlike so many others, they will receive love and care for the rest of their lives. At Hearts on Noses, all animals are equal and deserving of love and respect.
Please support the work that we do to rescue animals and provide them with the best care. You can also make a huge difference for animals by refusing to support their exploitation - learn about living a vegan lifestyle to save countless unseen animals from lives of misery.
