In June 2018, MFS took in three pigs as part of two rescues: Harriet and Jack, and Chester. 

Chester is a Juliana pig whose elderly guardians had difficulty caring for him. When he arrived at MFS, he required special attention for skin problems and overgrown teeth. Chester was about six-years-old when he came to MFS, and he will not grow any bigger.

Chester is a very sweet little pig. He is the only one of the three pigs who has tusks, but he never uses them to try to get his way – even when the other two get pushy, which usually happens when they are waiting for treats. He can often be seen cuddling with Harriet or waiting patiently for back scratches.
