Smith & Agli's Potbelly Manor
Vietnamese Potbelly Pig rescue and sanctuary
Smith & Agli's Potbelly Manor is a potbelly pig rescue dedicated to improving the lives of potbelly pigs and other farm animals.
Located near the historic village of Wickford on Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, we have been rescuing and advocating for potbelly pigs since 1995.
Audrey Agli and Liz Smith founded Smith & Agli's Potbelly Manor in 1995, inspired by the rescue of Skipper, an abused pig from the streets of Providence.
In addition to the special-needs pigs who are permanent residents our farm also has a number of other species that we have accepted as permanent rescues over the years; goats, pigeons, turkeys, a calf and a feral cat colony. We do not, however, handle adoptions for other species.
We also have a pet-assisted therapy program which serves as a link between the animals and the community. Ariel, out pet-therapy pig visits nursing homes and schools, and individuals and groups also visit the farm to spend one-on-one time with the animals.
