This month, visitors to the bakery can help the pigs at Pigs Peace Sanctuary by buying a pigzookie, a deep-dish cookie topped with toppings of your choice. A dollar from each purchase goes towards the sanctuary in Stanwood that provides a safe home for unwanted, abused or neglected animals.
The pigs roam freely around the 39 acres of meadow and forestland with ponds and trails. All sleeping areas are filled with soft hay for bedding, and pigs are able to choose their own bedtimes. The sanctuary specializes in helping the lives of pigs in need, but has also welcomed other animals and is now home to ponies, horses, llamas, dogs, cats, chickens, sheep, and turkeys. All donations go towards the care of the animals.
What began as a vegan food truck out of a 1974 Volkswagon bus has transformed into a full-blown bakery and ice creamery, offering sweet treats to all of Seattle. The Cookie Counter’s permanent location also offers ice cream, pies, loaves, muffins, and many other tasty vegan eats.
