Hope for the Pigs (Cute Video!)

Hope for the Pigs (Cute Video!)

A discovery last week of nearly 1,000 dead pigs abandoned in August, left to die of starvation at a Fulton County, Pa., farm has come as a shock to many.

In light of horrors such as this, we must keep in mind the work of dedicated animal activists who strive to put an end to the misery so many animals endure on a daily basis.

Farm Sanctuary is a dedicated animal protection organization that has been involved in the rescue of thousands of animals throughout their 24-year history. With two farm locations — Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Chico, Calif., — they give a permanent home to these animals to live out their lives free of abuse and very full of love.

Below is a video of Sprinkles and Tim. Sprinkles, a piglet rescued from a factory farm, arrived at the sanctuary malnourished and traumatized. Tim, the runt of his litter, was abandoned and facing premature death until he found refuge here. The two bonded within moments of meeting, grew into happy, healthy pigs and remain best friends.

You can also give hope to the pigs and put an end to the suffering of other innocent animals by maintaining a plant-based diet and choosing a lifestyle free of animal exploitation. Go vegan.

Horray for Farm Sanctuary! Lucky Pigs will live a great life. Pigs are very intelligent animals. I have given up meat and am vegetarin now and healthy. More people should consider giving up meat or eating meat only one day a week. They should not have to raise pigs in factory farming. Responsible local farms with grass/sunlight access on limited scale would be great for them and everyone.
