Todd Friedman: Arthur's Acres
Todd is the founder of Arthur's Acre Animal Sanctuary.
After finding a 3 ½-month-old piglet at a former small-scale "farm to table" type facility he was looking at in order to turn it into a sanctuary, Todd demanded to have the pig handed over to him. That pig he named Arthur. Arthur, who was the last pig to be threatened with death at that place, was the first pig to receive sanctuary there. The place where Arthur was meant to die young and afraid will be the place where he learns to live, to love, and be loved in return. Arthurs Acres now stands, no longer a negative place, but one with an abundance of love, kindness, positivity, and compassion. Todd has learned the joy and heartbreak of opening his heart to animals in need, thus finding his true passion in life.
