This Colorful Rhode Island House Is Actually A Little-Known Pig Sanctuary

When driving down Ten Rod Road in North Kingstown, there is one house that is sure to catch your eye. A lavender two-story colonial-style home with a front lawn full of buoys and other fascinating decor is the stand out of the neighborhood. Hiding behind the colorful facade is a little-known pig sanctuary that gives new homes to cast-off animals from Rhode Island and states beyond.
