155 potbellied pigs were abandoned on a farm in Orange, Virginia. Vegan Action and several other groups began working on the ground in January 2021 at the farm to get these pigs vaccinated, spayed and neutered, and rehomed. It will take much time, work, and funds but it is absolutely attainable.
In just 8 weeks we have rescued 71 pigs from this farm so far. Multiple sanctuaries throughout Virginia, including Rangers Refuge, Hope and Serenity, Loving Farms, Sanctuary Rescue, Harmony Farms, and Faithful Friends Sanctuary Farm have been able to help with the most needed – the very pregnant sows. Fortunately, 14 of the rescued pigs were rescued and rehomed in time to have their babies in a safe, warm space. Please see below some of the wonderful faces that we have rescued so far! We will be done when the last pig is relocated safe and sound.
We have several fundraisers going at this time to help with these efforts in addition to accepting donations. Please check out our limited edition For The Pigs Fundraiser T-shirt and our Sweat for the Pigs Fundraiser Event.
