Rooterville is home to nearly 200 rescued animals, particularly potbellied pigs but also some rescued from factory farms. These animals are ambassadors for the millions of animals raised for food, suffering on factory farms. Our hope is that when people meet these animals, they will see that they are no different than the animals they call pets, and rethink their food choices.
At Rooterville, we promote a healthful, whole foods, plant based diet. Its the best thing you can do for your health, for the environment and for the animals, of course.
As a Christian ministry, we encourage other Christians to understand that "dominion" is not a mandate to exploit and abuse God's creatures or His creation. God's original diet given in Genesis 1:29 is the best diet for our bodies. The Standard American Diet, (SAD), which is meat/dairy based, is a diet which destroys our bodies and our heatlh as evidenced by the proliferation of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer and other ailments.
By changing our diet, we can take back our health and honor our Creator who designed our bodies to maintain health, when given the proper nourishment. Besides health, a plant based diet exemplifies our Christian virtues of compassion, mercy and respect for life.
Join us in our journey to health and extending the love of God to all of His creation!
