Surrendered to make way for a new baby and found wandering at large was Boris Karloff and Dr Seuss. While their circumstances differed their fates did not; in desperate need of a loving home where they would become friends and not food had become their lot. The jovial Boris is quick to greet, obedient to sit and in love with belly rubs. Dr Seuss on the other hand is a little reserved, clearly not having received all the attention his new chum Boris had. However Dr Seuss has none the less mastered the good old ‘belly rub blissful grunt’ which just goes to prove that the way to a pigs heart is indeed via his tummy!
Pigs will never cease to bring a smile to our faces. Their playful antics and matter of fact manner are both clear indications that an intelligent being exists within. Our time spent in their company has taught us that they are no doubt one of the cleanest animals you could hope to meet; the idea of the ‘dirty pig’ being one of the most ill-conceived we have encountered. Friendly and fun loving are pigs.They are possessed with a purity of heart that is without menace. And while the Grinch may indeed attempt to steal Christmas, nothing will ever steal our resolve to help pigs. Please join us.
Pigs the kindness factor:
- Open your heart and home to a rescued pig. Only suitably equipped adopters please apply. Sense of humour, lots of changes of clothes and pig friendly accommodation required.
- Get pork off your fork. Try these pig (and all animal friendly) recipes – Sweet and Sour Fake Pork, Smokey Maple Hickory Fake Bacon & Maple Fake Bacon Pancakes
- Be my buddy – sponsor a rescued pig – Hamish or Hope
- Speak up for pigs. The shocking revelations that have recently come to hand as a result of investigations by Animal Liberation NSW and ACT have left many people reeling, shocking on so many levels, none the least being that much of the cruelty and suffering endured by the pigs is legal. Be informed. Become a voice for the voiceless, sign the online petition and contact our Federal Minister for Agriculture, Joe Ludwig and tell him pigs deserve better.
