Freckled Fergus


Come to the ranch and meet Fergus!


Fergus came to Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue from the North County Shelter.  Fergus is going to be a big boy!

Pigs are intelligent animal relations.  They can be potty-trained and walked on a leash.  Pigs have attitudes too!  Pigs make great family members.

In the last 6 months Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue has seen a spike in pig relinquishment.  We have had to turn away about dozen pigs in the last 5-6 months.  Fergus was on his last token.  We made some room and found a sponsor for him.  All of us at Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue are thankful for our wonderful volunteers and supporters.  With your help, Fergus is now safe!

Waiting for a loving, permanent home.

It’s Cat & Kitten Season!

Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue has a couple of cats that were kittens from last season still waiting for a home.

When you adopt a cat from Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue your kindness opens the door for our fosters and homebase to bring in abandoned and neglected kittens this Season.

Guppy is with one of our fantastic fosters!

Guppy the Teacup Puppy came to Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue a day after Valentine’s Day in 2013.  Guppy is neutered, microchipped and licensed.  Guppy is also disabled.  His back legs
aren’t 100%.  Often walking like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, Guppy’s legs will fall out from under him, however he gets right back
up and runs.  Guppy is not in any pain.  He will need someone who is
very patient and has at least one dog or one cat in their home.
