Dare to Dream - MPFL Property Expansion

What's the purpose of the expansion?

In the five years since MPFL was founded, we've focused on the highest standard of care for our rescues, in vet care, feed, housing and pasture, maintenance care and socialization. We can foresee issues in the future that may compromise that standard if we don't act today.
We know that a shocking 90 percent of pet mini pigs will be abandoned before their second birthday, while adoption of mini pigs from our rescue stalls at less than 10 percent. The need for mini pig rescue will only grow over time.
Our once green and lush 20 acre parcel of land has become sparse, and we know that in less than two years this acreage will be cleared of all grazeable material, biodiversity and potential for productivity. New and greener pastures for the pigs afford the opportunity to regrow our overgrazed pasture without disrupting natural and essential pig rooting and foraging behavior. As we renew the forage, we also reduce the microorganism load that can build over time, compromising the health of our pigs.

Why is funding so critical, right now?

Rural land prices are rising rapidly in many parts of Texas, even as available land is increasingly scarce nationwide, driven in large part by the pandemic and resulting societal changes. At this pivotal moment, My Pig Filled Life has been offered the chance to buy not just any land, but the contiguous 47 acres - provided that we complete the transaction within two years. That's why we're asking for a commitment from each of you, our supporters, to pledge $1.50 each month for the next two years.
