MACK, Colo. (KREX) — The potbelly pig sanctuary has a lot to celebrate. It just marked 25 years of service as the only pig sanctuary in the country to work with a county-operated animal rescue.

The sanctuary also claimed its first win in anything this year, placing first in Chesnick Realty’s Charity Lights competition and “Best Inflatables” for the “Let It Glow” Light Decorating Contest in Fruita. Passerby often stop for the 25 lit artificial trees and then some generous donations are made randomly to support Pig-a-sus.

Sanctuary Owner Sioux Robbins-Bartels says letting the display linger on allows the transition into the new year start and end the same: with joy.

“We’ve had such a turn out with people driving by, looking, and giving thumbs up that we’ve decided to let it go until January 5 and give the new year of some hope and, maybe, bring smiles to some more faces,” Pig-a-sus Homestead Sanctuary Owner Sioux Robbins-Bartels expresses.

The display will be lit 24/7 until January 5th. Parking will be available on site, at 506 S Rd, Mack, CO 81525, and across the street from the sanctuary.
