Valentine Piglets Arrive At Upstate Animal Sanctuary

These four cute little piglets are the newest additions to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, in upstate NY. 

Nemo, Eva, Pinky and Wally were rescued from an upstate man who had bought four pigs from an Amish farmer to raise for slaughter.  Turns out one of the pigs was pregnant; the farmer woke up one morning to find a newborn litter of 12 piglets, of which eight died. An animal rehabilitator came to the rescue and nursed the four surviving piglets back to health. Rather than returning the quartet back to be sold for slaughter, however, they landed at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, a 200-acre farm for abused and abandoned animals. Check out the video here. To sponsor one of the piglets to help pay for their care go to
