Media and Special Features

Keep scrolling to see some of the publicity we have gotten over the years and special features that our animals have gotten!
We love showing the world all the unique personalities every single one of our animals possesses and changing the way people think about farm animals. Every single one of our babies is a miracle, and someday, we hope the whole world sees them the way that the rest of Ziggy Nation sees them.
The Wizard of Paws (S1: E9)
Moko and Hannah Montana certainly wouldn't be here today if it weren't for the expertise, compassion, and help of their Uncle Derrick! Our babies were featured on his show this past Spring of 2020. Click the link below to check it out!

Ziggy the Traveling Piggy
This was the first "feature" of one of our animals that went viral on Facebook. In real life and through social media, our babies inspire people every day to choose a compassionate, vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. Our greatest hope is that people see our big ole baby flopping in the sand and make the connection that he's different from their dog or pet at home. Why do we love some but eat others? 
Hurricane Heroes
Hurricane Florence brought destruction to Eastern NC in late 2018, and tens of thousands of farmed animals perished. Learn more about the amazing survivors that live here at Ziggy's by clicking the video below.
