Meet Runner! In October of 2021, Animal control in Riverside received a call about a loose pig running thru the streets of Riverside city.

Animal control officers located Runner running in lanes around Magnolia Ave. and Adams St. They were having a difficult time in capturing him so Riverside City Police Officers were called in to aid in the capture. 

He eluded both animal control Officers and Riverside City Police Officers as he would quickly run around them or turn around to evade capture. It took Officers about 20-30 min to eventually apprehend Runner. He put up a brief struggle when he was captured but he wasn’t harmed. 

Animal control officers took him into custody, then we were contacted. We happily took him in. Now he roams our sanctuary free and will live out his life here.
