Community Helps Goldfield Rescue Ranch Raise Money For Pig Rescue Barn

Not all animal rescues are built the same.

Some are built of kennels and runs. While others have those too, but also have fences and shelters built for bigger animals.

This is the case for Lazy J Rescue Ranch in Goldfield, which did begin as a dog rescue, until the founders, Tyler Linn and Haley Fitzpatrick saw the need to help “everybody else”.

“We wanted to do rescue but we realized there were a lot of cat and dog rescues around and there was a gap in what we say, everyone else so we looked for country properties bought a place in the country and said we are going to deal with everyone else,” Linn said.

Included in everybody else are pigs. Recently, Lazy J Rescue Ranch was called in to help with two pigs, one in Wisconsin and a local one named Christopher, but found it difficult without a larger area for him.

“After talking to the people in Wisconsin and telling them how much we wished we could take these two, we just didn’t have the space for them, an anonymous donor stepped up and said if you could take the local one I’ll give you guys 5k as a match to do fundraising so you can buy a new barn just for your big pigs,” Linn said.

Linn said through Saturday, that anonymous donor is matching dollar for dollar up to $5k for that barn.
