Pig Tales Sanctuary on Animal Planet
By [email protected] 

Pig Tales Sanctuary was thrilled when Animal Planet Pet Psychic Sonya Fitzpatrick visited the Bunnell Sanctuary earlier this year. The cable channel star, who's promoted as "a real-life Dr. Doolittle", communicated with several pigs with physical problems, and was able to offer insights into their conditions, along with suggestions that might improve their health. A portion of Sonya's visit will air on Monday, April 28, at 8 p.m. ET/PT (repeating at 11 p.m., and 3 a.m. 4/29).

Pig Tales, located in northwest Flagler County, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which provides a permanent safe haven for a host of critters, including chickens, goats, ducks, horses, dogs, cats, and, of course, a profusion of pigs. The Sanctuary's merger with another sanctuary is nearly completed, pushing the porcine population to slightly more than 600.

Pig Tales founder and President, Lory Yazurlo, doesn't allow the fact that she is wheelchair bound to keep her from providing the best possible care for the residents at Pig Tales. Still, it's a daily struggle, both physically and financially, and wouldn't be possible without the assistance of volunteers and donations of various items, including produce, baked goods, and, of course, cash.

All Pig Tales residents, critters and humans alike, are vegans or ethical vegetarians.

Pig Tales is still seeking live-in animal lovers to help with the pigs in exchange for living quarters among kindred spirits on the tranquil, but busy, 20 acre Sanctuary, where there's never a dull moment.

Anyone interested in sponsoring a pig, donating, volunteering, or just learning more about Pig Tales can call Lory at (386)437-5580, e-mail her at [email protected], or write to her at 596 CR 90 E, Bunnell, FL 32110. Checkout the Pig Tales website at
