As we reported to you last week, Farm Sanctuary’s emergency rescue team is currently on the ground in Oakville, Iowa saving pigs stranded in the Mississippi River floods and providing them with emergency care and temporary shelter.

Thankfully, our efforts are proving successful as we now have 28 pigs in our custody. Many are in critical condition (suffering from injuries, pneumonia and third degree sunburns) and are receiving urgent care.

Now, as rescue efforts continue, we must quickly secure a large number of adoptive homes for pigs.

We continue to find more and more pigs still alive, surviving against all odds in fields, on levees, anywhere they can find refuge. Pigs are extremely resourceful, intelligent animals – they are fighters; they are survivors. After this tremendous demonstration of their will to live and all that they have endured, they deserve peace and comfort in their lives, as well as a chance to know that there is kindness in the world. PLEASE HELP by providing an adoptive home for as many pigs as you can.

Among those we have rescued is a brave, strong mother pig who gave birth to seven piglets within the past couple of days amidst the floods. She and her babies have survived the ordeal but this mother now needs a safe place to call home and nurture and raise her piglets.

Our need for homes is extremely urgent, as Farm Sanctuary already provides lifelong care to more than 50 pigs. We are continuing to rescue as many as we can, but our efforts can only continue with your participation in this extraordinary rescue.

Many of the rescued pigs swam for their lives to escape deadly flood waters. They were stranded without food or water, injured, sick, frightened, and confused. These pigs need you to give them hope for the future and keep them safe from harm forever.

ADOPT A PIG INTO YOUR HOME TODAY!

Contact our Farm Animal Adoption Network by calling 607-583-2225 ext. 223, e-mailing shelter@farmsanctuary.org or visiting us online at www.farmsanctuary.org/rescue/adoption.html. You can also learn more about pig care at www.farmsanctuary.org/rescue/care.html.

EMERGENCY RESCUE FUND DONATIONS STILL NEEDED
If you are unable to open your home to animals in need, please consider helping by donating now to our Emergency Rescue Fund which is already hard at work funding this critical rescue operation and providing aid to pigs and other farm animals in need.

PLEASE FORWARD AND DISTRIBUTE WIDELY. THANK YOU!
